First the good news: Whoever told you that Santa Claus was an impostor with a fake beard collecting a Christmastime check at the mall or a lie cooked up by your parents to trick you into five measly minutes of quiet was, at minimum, misinformed.
The bad news: Santa Claus is definitely dead.
Not just for kids. What is July 4 all about? Watch.

Most of the year, Canadians living in the United States look, talk and act so much like their neighbors that their nationality draws no attention at all. Autumn is a season of danger, though, when the mask of assimilation can be ripped off, forcing some Americans to face the unnerving, if fleeting, realization that Canada is an entirely different country.

...not a person, but a restaurant: world-famous Weiner's Circle in Chicago spent Halloween dressed up as McDowell's, the McD's knockoff across the street from a real McDonald's in Eddie Murphy's Coming To America.

Just what do you do with obsolete hardware like floppy disk drives? Play the Star Spangled Banner, of course.
Our old friend the Unipiper (typically wearing a Darth Vader costume) dresses up as Uncle Sam and plays the 1812 Overture on his flaming bagpipes while riding his unicycle around Portland, OR.

Independence Day is almost here, and to help celebrate the occasion, here's a hamster in a tricorn hat eating a tiny ear of corn.
Watch four friends enjoying a nice Summer BBQ outside for the Fourth of July. A rabbit, a hamster, a guinea pig and a hedgehog feast on some tiny burgers and kebabs while watch a "fireworks" show overhead.
