Santa Claus takes over, spreads cheer and goodies


Mohammed Aarif is an experienced Santa. He has been working for various event firms across the city for the past eight years. "I work at 5-6 places as Santa in a season. It could be anything like a company, corporate function, mall, theatres or call centre, among others," he says. Apart from being Santa, he takes up odd jobs of playing magician or doing juggling acts to entertain people.

But being a Santa does not mean just wearing a Santa costume and standing. "We have shifts which could be between an hour-and-a-half to a full day," he says.

Aarif takes his job seriously. "In order to give it a professional look we order costumes from Mumbai. We look real and believable and our clients and the children are happy," he adds.
