10 REAL LIFE SANTA CLAUSES THAT BROUGHT CHEER AND JOY!!

We know it’s really Christmas time when we see images of a jolly old man in his signature red cap and suit everywhere. While we do know that Santa Claus isn’t real (sorry kids!), there are those who have stepped up to the plate to become real-life St. Nicks. Let’s get to know and appreciate the people who, in true Santa Claus fashion, brought real joy and happiness to others—without expecting anything in return.  10The Secret Santa Of Kansas For more than a quarter of a century, residents of Kansas City were baffled by the generosity of a secret Santa. He roamed the streets and handed out $100 bills (sometimes more) to total strangers, with no strings attached at all. The only thing he told the recipients was to perform a good deed for someone else. The secret Santa’s kindness wasn’t limited to Kansas—he also went as far as New York and Florida, where he gave out thousands of dollars to residents who suffered from the terrorist attacks or natural disasters.

WORLD EGGTHROWING CHAMPIONSHIPS FROM ENGLAND!

The World Egg Throwing Federation is based at Swaton, in the county of Lincolnshire, England. This ancient village has stood on this ground since before Roman times. The occupying army created a canal that ran from Lincoln to Cambridge which was fed by, and crossed, by the River Eau at Swaton. Much of the canal is still extant today.

   The first place is The Jamestown Bridge located in Piedmont, Triad North Carolina.  This bridge is said to be haunted because at night many tourists and visitors have claimed that they would pick up a little girl who was looking for a ride on the side of the road.  When they picked her up, everything would be going fine and then all of a sudden when they look over at her again, she is gone.  Many ghost hunters find this spot to be intriguing because it leaves so much to the imagination.  It is said that this girl wears a white dress and can be seen at night.
