Finland is in dire need of Christmas elves. But, in lieu of the real thing, they'll settle for you, dressed like an elf, spreading yule-tide cheer in the months leading up to the big day. Lapland Safaris, a Finnish travel company, is looking to hire full-time elf impersonators to brighten people's moods during the Christmas season and, honestly, the gig sounds pretty perfect.


The job listing on Lapland's website informs readers:

An Elf is at the same time an entertainer, a guide and a mythical creature of Christmas.



Applicants should expect to become a "guide and mythical creature" from November 2018 to January 2019, starting with an intense elf-training session at the Arctic Hospitality Academy.

According to the application:

Training includes learning the required elfing and communication skills.

Surely no one with true Christmas spirit will be confused by that.



If Lapland choses you after the rigorous elven boot-camp, they will supply you with a shared apartment and a discount at all Lapland-owned stores and restaurants.



You may be wondering—what kind of events does an elf facilitate? Some of the classics include "skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and Northern Lights-gazing."



Sound amazing yet? Well, there's one catch: it's gonna get cold.

Elves will get the chance to help pick their destination from a list of cities that includes "Saariselkä, Levi, Rovaniemi, Hetta, Olos, or Ylläs," but no matter where you end up, it's gonna be very VERY chilly.



If you want this job, you'd better apply quick because Twitter wants it very badly!

Love is crazy. I've finally come to that conclusion. And marriage, you take your life in your hands and just throw caution to the wind in hopes of survival with that step.

When love falls apart, things can get real messy, real fast. And I've always been stunned by people's behavior when love subsides.

More often than not, it's like they become different people. Sometimes people are beset by tragedy and grief and sometimes people smile wide and move on. It's a coin toss.

But my favorite post divorce personality has to be the sudden super villain. Oh honey watch out for them!

Redditor u/hyperyog wanted to hear all the tea from the divorcees out there by asking:

Divorced Redditors, what is the craziest thing you or your former spouse did after divorce?

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is highly regarded for his delicious plates, his ability to run a solid restaurant, and, let's face it, his stage presence.

He's also a foul-mouthed Brit who is all too willing to dismantle people's self-esteems and compare them to livestock animals.
