Best Santa ever. Sometimes I forget the odd and yet awesome things done in the military that no one else ever does. Yes, it takes an arm and a leg to do stuff civilians take for granted... but if a civilian tried to dress as Santa and rappel down from a helicopter, there would be so many safety waivers to sign and city permissions to get that it would never happen, and you'd never find a guy willing to do it in the first place-- unless he was former military.

This is just really cool to see. ^^ Merry Christmas!

If I'd have know that this was Santa's sleigh, I would have believed in him a lot more as a kid.
