A couple years ago, I bought a santa suit. On Christmas day last year, I put on the suit, loaded up my bike, and had my wife drive me to the nearest town (we live in a rural area). I cycled around town, handing out candy canes. It was a blast! Never had so many cell phone cameras pointed at me in my life. It was fun seeing all the smiling faces. One lady stopped me, asked if she could take my photo. She asked, "So, did you loose a bet or something?". Told her, no, that I just enjoyed cycling. The she introduced herself, a reporter from a local paper. My photo was on the front page of the next day's edition.
Was especially fun, riding in residential areas. Lots of kids came running out to see santa. Mom's grabbed their cameras for photos of their kids with santa.
Was memorable experience. Weather permitting, I'm planning to do it again this year. But this time, I'll buy more than 4 dozen candy canes. They didn't last long.
