Most parents in America have had to suffer through the annual experience of taking their child to the local mall to see Santa Claus. The lines are long, your kid never smiles in the picture, and there’s always at least one kid crying. Through all of it, we’ve forgotten about what the people who dress up as Santa have to go through.
Let me tell you right now: their job isn’t easy. A Reddit thread asked people who have played the part of Santa to share their weird, funny, and heartbreaking experiences, and it is eye-opening. If you thought your kid was weird, at least they aren’t asking Santa to help kill their sister’s pony.
One Kid Expected Santa To Slaughter His Reindeer For Him
This Reddit user was an elf who takes photos of Santa and the kids, and overheard one child ask Santa for some reindeer sausage. I guess the kid figured Santa had to fulfill his Christmas wishes and would be willing to cut Rudolph in pieces to do it.
Realistically, the kid might be Scandinavian, where reindeer meat is a popular food.
