Santa sightings around the world

You know that Santa covers a lot of territory on Christmas Eve, but during the rest of the year he doesn’t just sit around. In the past few weeks, Santa — and some of his well-disguised helpers — have been spotted walking, riding and even swimming on several continents. It’s undoubtedly part of his “know-when-you’ve-been-bad-or-good” spy plan.

We’re not sure how Santa manages this, but for 28 years he has stopped here to water-ski on the Potomac River just hours before he has to hop on his sleigh. We heard that he’s coming back this year, and we have one request: Please, Santa, keep the daredevil moves to a minimum!
