JERUSALEM, Dec. 21, 2017 - A man dressed as Santa Claus rides a camel in Jerusalem's Old City, on Dec. 21, 2017.
It's Christmas and by now you have all probably gotten your presents. For those who haven't gotten their presents yet. Be patient, they're on the way !! After all, this is a really hectic time for all the Santa Clauses from around the world.
Ever thought what would it be to live the life of Santa Claus, traveling to different places and delivering countless presents to kids from all over the world. Well, it's not something any of us could ever do. And that's why Santa is the right man for the job. No matter how bad the weather is or how tiring all that non-stop traveling can get, Santa will make sure that every single present he's got in his gift bag will be delivered to each and every child out there.
Take a look at one of Santa's photo-filled journeys showing the art of delivering presents.
Santa on the Highway !!
These friendly cyclists were kind enough to give me on a ride on the busy highway. These guys were all dressed in red and also wore a red Christmas hat just like the one I wear.
Santa and paper snow !!
Unfortunately, the snowfall wasn't quite as strong as usual. So I thought of this crazy idea using little bits of paper and who knew !! It worked !! We had a paper snow snowfall that night.
Santa in a Parade !!
It wasn't planned but I actually became a part of a parade. The guys told me that their Santa Claus wasn't well and that I bore a strong resemblance to the Santa Guy!! I simply hopped on the wagon, got a nice long ride and of course all the love from the people below, standing on both sides of the street.
Never knew people loved me so much !!
Santa on A Train !!
Some people just wouldn't believe you when you tell them who you are. I spent almost an hour trying to convince this young lady that I was Santa Claus. She wouldn't believe me even when I told her that dropped gifts through the chimneys of houses on Christmas Eve and that I had a magical sleigh that was led by my 8 flying reindeer
Santa at the zoo
Santa on a Plane !!
Don't worry folks, all your Christmas presents are right where they should be. Just make sure you don't open the overhead bin compartments for the next 8 hours.
Santa is a Star Wars fan too !!
I really didn't think my favorite star wars action figure was there inside the gift bag the whole time. No, I'm not upset, I'm really happy I gave it to that kid. He'll love it. He'll also love the removable mask feature, the glowing lightsaber, the spin kick action, and the awesome black boots. I'm sure that kids will take care of it.
Oh, I'm not sad, I'm really happy for that kid. * wipes teary eyes*
Surf's Up Santa !!
No traffic jams or stormy skies can stop me. If water is the way, then I'll let the winds and tides guide me through the roaring seas.
Hold on kids, Santa's on his way. Just don't know why my gift bag looks darker than usual.
Santa on the Gift Bus !!
Next stop, Gift street !! I had to stand the whole day inside this bus making sure that all my 3006 gifts had places to sit. But standing for a few hours was totally worth it. Afterall a few hours is nothing compared to the joy that is going to last for days for these kids.
Santa at the Taj Mahal
I saw this photographer taking pictures of this dull white bench, so I did him a favor. and I sat on the bench. And for some reason, this photographer guy was friendly enough to take a photograph of me.
Santa in a show !!
As I was walking I passed this guy who was steering a white sleigh with two beautiful white horses. So I asked this guy whether I could get a lift and he was kind enough to give me one. I don't understand why there is a crowd full of people just seated around the area watching us and clapping each time his horses do a few tricks.
Its been 2 hours since I hopped in and the guy has just been going in circles.
Santa underwater !!
I had a wonderful time swimming underwater as I swam in this giant fish tank with my scuba diving gear. These fishes seem to think that I'm a new Giant red fish who has just come into their world. Most of these guys look cute and friendly.
However there's this one fish longer in size, has pointy traingular erect fins, cold black eyes and scary sharp looking teeth. Weird looking fish I guess !!
Santa at The India Gate !!
You won't believe this but I met the same friendly photographer again and I posed for a photograph for a second time. I still don't get the fact why this photographer guy likes taking pictures of empty benches and roads while standing far away from a beautiful looking monument.
Funny but this time he kinda looked like he was annoyed about something. I think he felt sad that I left too soon. !! Next time, buddy !!
Santa at the Hospital !!
This kid here is one of the bravest kids I ever met. Hospitals with the big noisy machines, the masked doctors, plastic fluid-filled bottles hanging upside down, medicine bottles ....these things scare me. Not this kid though. The kid told me that he's been here for so long that he felt that this was like his home.
The Presents I gave him did make him happy, but it was the hug that brought tears to his little eyes. I'll never forget you, little guy !!
Santa on a camel !!
I asked the people I met in Jerusalem whether they saw one of my reindeer named Rudolph. While they didn't get exactly what I was saying, a few actions showing what a reindeer would look like helped them understand what I was saying.I'm now riding this funny looking humpy reindeer who I am very sure isn't Rudolph.
But this guy had literally no problem letting me ride on his back !! Good boy, Rudolph 2 !!
Santa's Smile !!
I don't know why I look grumpy sometimes in every photo I pose for. I am trying to smile as hard as I can in this one. I'm actually trying to give a teethy kinda smile with this happy couple.
Oh well, looks like my hair is growing all the way down my forehead again. I think its time I get a haircut before my eyes get covered.
Farewell Folks !!
Ah, at last, it has sure been a long week. All my presents have been delivered and I have seen the world and millions of happy faces, It's time for me to go back to my home, the north pole !! And yes with all that traveling around I sure am tired, time to go and get my long rest.
See you next year everyone, Oh and a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !!
