There’s no better way to spend Christmas Eve, in my opinion, than to attend the annual Water Ski Show at National Harbor at the Potomac River in Maryland, near Washington, DC. Monday was the 27th Annual event, featuring Santa skiing behind one of his reindeer … just as it happened in the Book of Matthew.

And the photo below, of an elf doing ski flips, is a great relief to me, because now I know it really happened. I had been afraid it was just a troubling dream.
