We seem to have been sufing some of the same sites!
I also noticed some references to Nezha disturbing the sea"
(ÄÄß¸ÄÔº£) and recall Yang Zhenduo telling stories about him at seminars. Do you understand how he fits in with the Great Yu and the Monkey King's "Do-as-you-wish, golden-hoop cudgel"?
In reading some of the websites and trying to disentable the stories, I feel like someone trying to research Santa Claus and trying to reconcile Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, elves, the Grinch, and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
