Here's 8 Sets Of Twins With Santa At Peterborough Square

Peterborough photographer Carl Hoskisson has been shooting Santa photos at Peterborough Square for a decade but the one he took on Saturday morning (December 16th) might be among the most epic.

Eight sets of twins gathered with their plaidtastic parents from Peterborough Parents of Multiples for a picture with Santa, and Hoskisson somehow managed to capture this incredibly cute picture that has us seeing double.

"It was a unique opportunity," Hoskisson tells PTBOCanada of photographing all the twins. "It's always fun to be a part of something special like that."

Hoskisson has had lots of experience shooting large groups of the years—he is a professional wedding photographer—which allowed him to pull off this group shot quickly.

Here is another picture he captured of one set of the twins...

Carl and Santa will be Peterborough Square Monday to Sunday (11 a.m. to 5 p.m.) taking more photos. Kids, families, groups and pets—yes, pets—are all welcome. Indeed, Carl will be making a donation to the Lakefield Animal Welfare Society for every pet picture he takes.

If twin pets show up? Well that's a whole other story.

Here Is Santa On A Jet Ski On The Otonabee River Because Why Not

Catherine Brown spotted Santa on a jet ski Saturday evening (May 28th) cruising the Otonabee River in Peterborough. This is not a common occurence.

"I was with my parents and grandparents," Catherine tells PTBOCanada of seeing Santa on a jet ski. "We were all surprised to see Santa and my mom's reaction was, 'You never know what you'll see on the river!' My grandma's reaction was, 'We should tell him we've been good!'"

It is off season for Santa so we guess this sorta makes sense—plus Peterborough and the Kawarthas is a great tourist destination. No word where Rudolph is (probably in the woods somewhere)...

Here is another picture below of Santa with a couple other jet skiers...

PtboPics: We Visited Santa At Lansdowne Place & Portage Place

Every year, I continue to read the book How To Be Santa Claus. It's filled with stories of the Christmas spirit and what it means to be Santa Claus—how Santa's look is so important and that his beard must look real and he must wear actual boots and not just boot covers. After reading it again this year, I headed off to the malls to check out our local Santa's doing this very important job this year.
