Santa falls out of horse-drawn sleigh

Alfred Nowakowski, 51, from Ustrzykach Dolnych, and his 31 year-old female side-kick Felicia Brodowski sat in the sleigh waving to the locals gathered on the high street. “Ho, ho, ho,” Alfred sang, slurring his words and feeling the alcohol rush to his head. He couldn’t remember the last time he’d felt so drunk. He pulled back on the reigns at the sound of a car beeping its horn, but it was too late and the horse reared up and the sleigh was thrown against the wall. Alfred looked up at the sky, the tarmac pressed against his back.
