Santa Claus delivered quite the Christmas surprise to a Serbian news reporter live on-air.
A reporter for Radio Television of Serbia (RTS) believed she was conducting an interview with a local politician at a Christmas market in Belgrade. But before the reporter could get through the story, Old Saint Nick barged in crying, “Ho, ho, ho!”
What appeared to be an opportunistic Santa looking to spread some seasonal cheer and hand out presents had something more ‘marry’ to share.
The unknowing reporter played along with the Father Christmas wannabe before he revealed who he really was.
This Kris Kringle imposter, who actually was the reporter’s boyfriend and fellow RTS co-worker, stripped off his red hat and flowing white beard to reveal his true identity.
Kneeled down on one leg, the trickster asked the giggling reporter to marry him.
Santa Claus must have been a ‘good boy’ himself this year, as he received the gift he asked for – a simple “yes”.
