Santa goes Hipster in Canada

Santa goes Hipster in Canada
Hot ‘Fashion Santa’ hits the mall in Toronto

Looking a lot more hipster than your average Santa, Canadian model Paul Mason has been dubbed the hot ‘Fashion Santa.’

Hired by Yorkdale Mall in Canada, he’s currently delighting a different sort of clientele you’d usually see lining up at your local shopping centre.

This updated version of Santa sports perfectly groomed white hair and matching hipster style beard. The rosy cheeks have been replaced with angular cheekbones, and the little round belly is nowhere to be seen.


Apart from looking fashionable, he’s also there to raise money, with the mall donating $1 to the SickKids Foundation for each selfie taken and posted to social media with the hashtag #YorkdaleFashionSanta.

It seems the internet has gone mad for Santas this week, after a video of Middlesbrough Cleveland Centre‘s Santa going viral after using sign language to ask a girl with hearing problems what she wants for Christmas.

Watch the heart warming moment here:
