Its not JUST santa and his elves that slave around in anticipation for tomorrow. Santa is a man who has a lot of average people working ridiculous jobs over the holiday season, as well. While walking around Midtown, yesterday, I found some pretty dedicated Christmas workers.

My best guess for what these people were, were Sugar Plums. The fact that they refused to speak and that I’ve never seen a sugar plum only makes my theory more factual.
The Salvation Army was out doing that thing they do every year while you’re waiting for someone outside of a store. Ringing that bell until you cave and give them a dollar just for a few seconds of silence. The wisest upgrade on their part, was this dashing young lad who had decided to replace his bell with a mic to serenade me.
The man whos job was to guide you away from a Macys fire exit and toward Santa, almost made my day. That was until AJ, one of my closest friends, saw how sad I was that no one was dressed as a marsupial. He threw on my kangaroo suit and made a lot of little kids very happy and large adults very scared, simultaneously.
What a fantastic Christmas, its been so far!

Except for the last one, which was obviously taken by an elf.
