It wouldn’t be Christmas without jolly old Saint Nick, the one and only Santa Claus. Now, we all know that Santa Claus is a versatile and magical man, but this picture collection shows just what he’s truly capable of. I bet you never thought of Father Christmas as an athletic skier or one to swim around with sharks and stingrays! How about window washing at death-defying heights? You can even spot Santa going water skiing. Okay, we’ve all probably figured he’s gone for a round of golf, but some of these are pretty surprising!

While Santa is certainly happy in his eternal occupation of bringing gifts to kids all over the world on one night, I imagine he’s had some time to develop some hobbies over the years in the off-season. I mean, what else has he got to do? It’s not like he’s on the toy assembly line with the elves or anything.

Here at Newscom, we like to provide collections of some truly outstanding pictures, ones that you might not see every day. Check out the great pictures in this post as well as a full lightbox dedicated to the numerous endeavors of Santa!
