In 1961, Magnum photographer Dennis Stock shot the story of a New York school for Santas, a place for Men of Volunteers of America to get a seasonal job, that is to learn how to dress, talk and act Santa. A behind the scenes vision that reminds you-if ever forgotten- that Christmas can be such a lousy and profitable business. But, if by any chance, you manage to keep its residual magic alive, we wish you a merry Christmas.
