Tattooed Santa – level 2

16-12-2014 15:00

A Brazilian artist plays a shopping mall Santa during the Christmas season. He has white hair and a beard so he fits the role.

However, there is something interesting about this Santa Claus. Ninety-four per cent of his body has tattoos. Many of his tattoos are related to Christmas. You can find a picture of Jesus and Jingle Bells, for example. Yes, he is a very committed Santa player.

Difficult words: beard (facial hair), tattoo (a picture made out of ink on your body), committed (loyal).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
