The Unbearable Banishment: Best. Santa. EVER!

Best. Santa. EVER!

Down the street from my house is a two-story brick building that, many years ago, was a warehouse. They gutted it and created separate retail spaces in that "up and coming neighborhood" sort of way, and it is now occupied by little knick-knack stores and specialty clothing shops.

Every Christmas, Santa visits. I've seen TONS of Santa's over the years—including the Santa at Macy's, who is supposed to be the Authoritative Santa—but nobody can touch this guy. He's fantastic!

Just look at this face!


I'm tellin' ya, this guy IS Santa. You have to be in his presence to appreciate his "Santa-ness." That's a real beard. And he's jolly, to boot! But he doesn't smell of weed or alcohol, so it must be his nature to be happy. Freak.

I'm still trying to catch a picture of my mailman. Every year he grows his beard and grows his hair and wears a santa hat and santa suit when making his rounds. He also volunteers to be the santa at the local childrens hospital.

But I gotta hand it to you, your santa is pretty legit looking!

I'd love it if he had a midget elf as well. That would complete the look.

What? A rosy cheeked Santa that doesn't have a piquant odor of gin about him? Must be the real deal.
