>>> much for trying to bring in the christmas cheer a little early this year. this santa at a mall in redding, england, was forced to slow things down for a while as he rappelled in. his beard got stuck on his wire, so there he stayed dangling for about 30 minutes . apparently a very good sport because he said he could have freed himself immediately by losing the beard, but he didn't want the kids down below to know that he wasn't the real santa.
