It’s that time again! Christmas is nearly upon us here in the USA and you know what that means…
The tradition of dressing up like Santa Claus and shooting a Parkour video started in 2003 when Suomen Parkour Ry, a group of practitioners from Finland, made a video called “Joulupukki 2003”. (Joulupukki is the Finnish name for Santa Claus) It later became known as “Santa Claus Dash”. They released a video every year for a number of years after that and the tradition has stuck ever since.
There hasn’t been news of a 2009 edition yet but here’s a quick round-up of the previous videos and a few other ones featuring St. Nick himself!
Poster’s Note – It was a little tough to verify which Finnish video was which year. For instance, I think 2006’s video should feature a chase with the Easter Bunny, but the link on their website no longer works. Here is the link to their main website. This is the best I could do. If I’ve mixed any up, forgotten one, or a link doesn’t work, please let me know!)
