Following up on Stacey’s disturbing Santa pictures, here’s a grainy video record of a local tradition. Ladies and gentlemen, direct from Villa Maria restaurant, here’s M**t**b**ing Santa. (Name edited to keep from getting crawled, but you get the idea.) Keep your eye on his right arm.

I should probably explain why he got this name, seeing as how it’s not overtly apparent from the video. The good folks at Villa Maria have set up this anamatronic Santa in their shop every year for the last 4 or 5 years, at least. The first time Darren and I noticed him, the right arm was moving at about twice the speed you see in the video, and his right hand was empty. And thus, the yuletide legend was born. Enjoy!
