Something tells me that there must be a Santa Claus musical out there somewhere, either as a movie or a stage presentation. But if there isn't, I found at least a starting point for one.

{Between Google and YouTube, you can find almost everything. Throw in WikiPedia, and you're pretty well covered] For the last decade or so, a group in New York City calledImprovEverywhere has put on unexpected entertainments in a wide variety of settings. The one you're about to see took place in a mall in New Jersey; how much would you give for something like this to suddenly break out at the Boulevard Mall, for instance, or any other shopping center in Western New York?

Now, obviously, the performers were prepared in advance [click here to see some of the preparations], but the shoppers who were at the right place at the right time were totally unprepared [and, as far as can be told from their reactions, totally delighted].

Would you enjoy an unexpected performance like this? Or do you just want to finish your shopping, and get home? Please let us know your opinion, either here or on our Facebook page.
