Santa Claus was spotted on the loose without his reindeer Tuesday, and he was holding up traffic.
The giant inflatable Santa Claus apparently broke free from the front of a home nearby in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, in the U.K., the BBB reported.
A taxi driver from the area who witnessed the ordeal said it was a little unusual.
“It was massive — bigger than my seven-seater car,” Muhammad Fareed said. “I saw it wobble and then come down onto the road. It did raise a smile.”
Fareed said by the time he passed Santa, he saw two men trying to pull the inflatable jolly old man off the roadway.
A few locals took to Twitter about the ordeal.
I just love those #Christmas songs. All together now: Santa Claus is coming to town..... and he's holding up traffic on the B198 in Wisbech. https://t.co/p8nTMd6cjf — Rob Setchell (@RobSetchell) November 27, 2018
Luckily for all the good boys and girls, it appears Santa made his way safely back home -- for now.
