This 50ft Santa is not laughing all the way, ho, ho, ho… instead he is burning all the way, no, no, no… to the ground! I must have a case of the Internet skepties because I thought for sure this was another photoshopped wonder, but as it turns out, it really happened in Southern Brazil last week, on a street ironically named Santa Catarina. Very little information is available, but there is this amateur video clip of the fire.
This event has struck a Viral Christmas Chord as the pictures and comments are spreading like wildfire (pun intended) across the Internet.
