It’s become synonymous with Christmas. Santa Claus, also known as Father Christmas or Saint Nicholas, is a legendary figure originating in Western Christian culture.
Santa Claus is said to bring gifts to the homes of well-behaved children on the night of Christmas Eve or during the early morning hours of Christmas Day.
A Lagos Santa, however, found out the hard way that being dressed in Santa’s costume yet not bearing gifts was a feat the children wouldn’t countenance.
A video circulating on social media shows children trooping to welcome Santa Claus to their neighborhood but upon discovering that he bore no gifts, they turned on him giving him a few slaps.
Overwhelmed with the knocks, a bewildered Santa fought back, extricating himself and locating his disengaged costume head to put on.
