I'm sorry, but this story just cracked me up too much not to share (from the local paper):
Santa on a donkey cart!
Forget the traditional sleigh and the reindeer. Here it is different to Lapland! In Nata last weekend Father Christmas arrived by donkey cart at the annual orphans and needy children Christmas party but his arrival caused such a commotion that dozens of children up to the age of 10 dashed into the bush as they had never before seen a real live Father Christmas in his red suit! It turned out they believed he was there to kidnap them and take them away from their caretakers, but as Santa walked around shaking hands and giving high fives to all the students, the youngsters carefully walked out of the bush to shake his hand. After everyone finally got acquainted, he started to pass out gifts donated by businesses and individuals to make this a Christmas to be remembered.
