We all know there’s only one Santa Claus, but you might be doubting that if you were in Denmark this week.
That’s because hundreds of Santa look-alikes were in the European country for the 55th annual World Santa Claus Congress. A bunch of Santa’s elves and other helpers from all over the world gathered at an amusement park.
If Santa seems slimmer this holiday season, it may be because there was even a Zumba exercise class. Zumba is a fitness dance done to Latin music. The Santas did it with hula hoops around their waists!
“It was a sweaty experience . . . but now I’m hooked. I think I will be doing some more Zumba,” chuckled Douglas Gowin, a 57-year-old Santa’s helper from Washington.
Of course, there were also some more serious activities, aimed at getting Santa ready for his round-the-world-in-one-night journey. Those included an obstacle course in which Santa had to go down a chimney and climb an ice mountain.
