Hobokenpix: Best Xmas decoration!

[Continuing the Hoboken411 “Photo of the Day” series…]

Hoboken Photo of the Day – 12/15/2008

I spotted this Santa “escaping” a brownstone on Bloomfield Street yesterday… Hey, since when was Santa a midget? Or was that one of his elves impersonating him? Was he being held against his will? Doesn’t he normally use a fire escape? Maybe they didn’t clean their chimney? And why was he out so early? I thought he comes after midnight on December 25th?

A lot of unanswered questions – sort of like politics in Hoboken.

[quote comment=”123180″]OMG hahaha! These little santas on ladders, I’m SO used to them I almost didn’t recognize how odd it was to see a photo of one on Hoboken411, they ARE foreign in this country. I spend most holiday seasons in France with my boyfriend and I remember that every time I go there I find myself commenting on these little creations all the time as it seems every house in France has one of these oddities. Apparently in France they believe Santa comes in through the window and not through the chimney, hence the ladder. Yes they look odd for an American… is Santa carrying the loot out of the house after ransacking it? Where is his trusty reindeer? Regardless of the why’s for the social climbing santa, my bet is that whomever is the owner of this santa on Bloomfield is at least European if not, French!

Lilbruiser4: My co-worker loves this climbing Santa. Any idea where you can get one in the States?
