Santas rehearse

How do you become a Santa? Do you start with the big belly? The "ho-ho-ho"? Which side of the head should the hat hang?

Every year, Volunteers of America takes the streets of New York City to raise money for the homeless. Their action? Dressed up as Santa Klaus. "We are Santa's helpers", one of the participants say. Some of them have never done this before. They had to attend a one-of-a-kind class: "How to be Santa Klaus?" I was there too.
