Santa Claus is a busy guy. For at least a couple of months anyway. But he’s got a lot of down time too. What’s a jolly fat guy to do with all that spare time? He’s got plenty of help to make the toys, feed the reindeer, and such. But what does the big guy do with his spare time.
He trains for the Olympics – the Santa Olympics.
For this event you would have to travel to the way up north Swedish town of Gällivare. It’s not quite the North Pole but you can see it from there.
This years event included eight Santas from seven countries. They competed in a host of Santa and Reindeer games each hoping to be crowned the Top Nick. Events included:
- Reindeer Race
- Kick Sleigh Race
- Porridge Eating Contest
- The “Christmas Day Special”
(Something silly with Candy Cane)
- Chimney Climbing
This year’s top jolly guy is Dave Downey, a bloke from down under. Holy Tinsel on the Barbie, St. Nick. Grab your can of Fosters and toast the Aussie Claus!
