Is this a Real Santa?



Ashleigh and I were in Melbourne for a short break recently. As it is getting close to Christmas, there were many people performing on the streets - trying to earn some money. Whilst walking through Bourke St Mall, we came across this Santa made out of stone. At first glance, we thought it was a statue. But then, a little girl went up to touch 'it' and 'it' moved. Later in the day, we saw the undressed version of Santa, and it was actually a young bloke who wore the suit. In the 32C heat and humidity, he must have been 'roasting' inside.

  2. Haha,the Melbourne Santa looks authentic but perhaps petrified in stone. He may have been waiting to be touched to be alive again,like in a fairy tale.
