Santa’s Boot Camp (Video)

By  |  0 Comments

St. Nick’s Basic Training is…unique, but something that all service members can relate to.

There is a blatant contradiction when it comes to Santa Claus. On one hand, we’re told that there’s just the one Santa. On the other, there’s Santa’s in every mall in the country. Hell, there are Santa-Cons, where hundreds, if not thousands of Santas gather together.



So where do they come from?

Well, it turns out that they all go through basic training at the Sant-A-cademy.

If you’ve been to boot camp, there’s a good chance you’re going to recognize a lot of what you’ll see in the video, from uniform corrections to obstacles that are a bit more challenging than necessary.

If you haven’t, this video clip has as good a relation to modern boot camp as what you saw in Full Metal Jacket.
