VIDEO: Santa Claus swings from construction equipment in Colorado


DENVER (KDVR) — As if 2020 hasn’t been weird enough already, Santa Claus is trading his sleigh for a 50,000-pound excavator.

While trying to get toys ready for Christmas, Santa needed a quarantine break.

Robert Holmes, aka Santa, decided to practice his flying skills before Christmas earlier this week.

While relaxing at Tico Time River Resort near Durango, Holmes was hoisted up on a rope, gliding through the air while attached to the excavator.

“Gotta do something during quarantine,” Holmes said.

The next time we see Santa, he will be flying in the sky with a sleigh full of toys for all the good girls and good boys.
