Off-Duty Santa Sighting in Seattle

Apparently when he's not driving his sleigh, he uses a red PT Cruiser to get around. I caught this glimpse of a Santa look-alike as he let his dog out to stretch its legs. Those Ray Ban's definitely hide a celebrity's eyes from a curious public. . .

12/22/06 Update: today while driving on Capitol Hill I spied this gentleman again, standing outside a cafe and wearing the same hat. Parked nearby was the same red PT Cruiser, and to my delight, on the window was painted Ho Ho Ho & Company (click the link for more info). So, he is a professional Santa, after all!
