Christmas Labor

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

A breakdancing reindeer (a.k.a. your friend from high schools dad); Minnie Mouse in Santa suit (a.k.a. an immigrant working the street)

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 damn 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.
