It was Christmas Eve a couple of years ago. I had finished all my shopping so I decided to take my canoe out for a short trip. As I was unloading my gear, I looked downstream and saw what appeared to be a man in a red suit poling up the river.
I ducked out of sight as he approached and watched him push up a small drop...
... and head upstream.
I decided to follow him. Eventually, he pulled off the river where a small group had gathered. Curiosity got the best of me, so I pulled my boat up on to shore and walked over to talk to them. I learned that the man in the red suit was Santa Claus, and the small group that had gather by the river were his elves.
I also learned that much of what I thought I knew about Santa was wrong.
When he was ready to leave, he offered us some Sailor Jerry.
Then he headed off to begin his nightís work.
I know it s amazing, but its true - pictures donít lie!
Merry Christmas everyone.
