Santa Claus is coming to town—and he’s bringing his soccer ball along with him.

Soccer enthusiast and YouTube star Daniel Dennehy showed off his Christmas spirit all over New York City, dressing up in a full Santa suit, beard and all—and a pair of black Nikes.

When he’s not hanging from the subway rails, or practicing in the middle of traffic and construction, he’s giving passers-by hugs and chocolate bars while earning smiles with his holiday spirit.
