Going to meet Santa at the mall is a ritual that some love and some hate, but most bravely do it anyway at some point. To set your kids on Santa’s lap and get that adorable photo that you can put in your Christmas cards to satisfy the grandparents, you have to stand in line with Christmas music on repeat and dozens of other families in the same situation while the kids are sick and tired of waiting (or literally sick.) But it’s probably nothing compared to what the job is like for the man himself.

Anyone who puts on a red velvet suit and plays the beloved role of Father Christmas must be a kind and patient soul indeed. You would have to be in order to spread Christmas magic to hundreds of kids in a row, including taming the ones who would rather be anywhere else. But here are some situations that probably weren’t in the job description, from people bringing their four-legged children to sit on Santa’s lap, to grown-ups who just love Christmas so much that they keep coming back year after year.

See how professional Santa performers deal with the unexpected in these pictures, and upvote your favorites! While you’re waiting for the big day, you can also look back on our lists of the best and worst Christmas decorations, and people whose Christmas wasn’t very merry.

Some things never change. That’s what some of these Santa performers must think when they get visitors who keep coming back even as they grow up. One pair of brothers has a whole slideshow of pictures with Santa over 30 years, eventually adding their own children to the picture!

Want to know another thing that never changes? A Canadian mall Santa who has been doing the job every Christmas season for 35 years says that although the types of presents that kids ask him for have changed with the introduction of more electronics, Legos are a classic that have stuck around.

My Favorite Shot From Our Christmas Shoot This Year

Professional Santa performers⁠—and, yes, they say the job requires somebody who can put on a show⁠—who are really serious about their craft go to Santa training schools with whimsical names like “Northern Lights Santa Academy.” There, they learn not only lore about the role and how to accurately talk about reindeer, but the business practicals of self-promotion and getting private bookings.

There’s also increasing demand for not just Santa performers, but also Mrs. Claus, say women who have stepped into the role in recent years. Maybe soon you’ll be able to choose which visitor from the North Pole you’ll want to take your kids to visit.

Performers say that while playing Santa pays well, it takes a large investment at the start for a quality costume. And, of course, a great love for Christmas spirit and children, not to mention a philosophy of kindness and wisdom that follows them all year round.

Hey there! We are @Dogs_of_Vilnius – a project by Gabija Kavaliauskaite and Karolis Jonusas – a couple running street photography blog of dogs. Every day we explore streets of Vilnius, the capital city of Lithuania, with an aim to bring you a one-to-one with the cutest and the fluffiest doggos we meet. As a country obsessed with canines, Lithuania has 1 dog for 3.9 humans ratio which translates to approximately 730 000 doggos in a small Baltic nation of just 3 million.

We began this project as a way of stepping further from our usual approach when encountering some passerby’s dog, normally just asking to pet it and then bid our farewell. However, now we don`t settle until there are at least a few dozen potential pictures…Rather often it takes more than just a treat to attract the attention of a doggo: some are more interested in toys, some require commands from their owner (unless it`s a Husky or a Labrador, both breeds appearing to be designed for photoshoots).

Having recently visited a major animal shelter “Lese” we plan on bringing the spotlight social media provides us with to other less fortunate four-legged friends and their temporary (often – permanent) homes. Join our quest to spread at least some of that unconditional love dogs offer by finding us both on Instagram and on Facebook as @Dogs_of_Vilnius.

Chickens can do anything they set their mind to, we all know that! But what if a chicken goes where no other chicken has gone before? What if they tried to play the piano and not suck at it? This chicken dared to dream and succeeded formidably!

As the New York Jets were beating the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night, the Jets got a little dance-happy during a late-game timeout.

In front of their hometown fans, the Jets didn’t huddle up to discuss game strategy or to take a few extra sips of water while they waited for the game to resume. Instead, they did this.

When the whole squad’s lit…

A post shared by New York Jets (@nyjets) on

That’s pretty fun, right? You know what’s a whole lot more fun? When Twitter gets ahold of the video, hashtags it #JetsDanceToAnything, and sets the internet aflame.

The internet apparently discovered that the Jets can dance to any style of music. Need proof? Here are some examples.

To “Hava Nagila?” God yes.

Charlie Brown would appreciate this even after Lucy pulled the football away.

It works in different languages.

It’s fun for a Baby and a Ginger.

Barry Gibb would be proud.

It’ll put you in the Christmas spirit …

… you’ll finally get that piece of the pie …

And it’ll make you want to be Rickrolled.

The Jets were supposed to be terrible this year, and some analysts predicted they might go 0-16 on the season. Instead, they’re 4-5 in 2017, and though they’re probably not good enough to make the playoffs, they’ve certainly been successful enough where they can dance their hearts out on the field and celebrate for as long as they want.
