It’s December so that means it is time to bust out all of your favorite holiday movies to watch to help you get into the spirit of the season. One of these might be The Polar Express, based on the children’s picture book of the same name. One Reddit user has a theory about this Christmas film that might just change the way you view it. He believes that the character the Hobo is actually the ghost of the original Santa Claus.
“In many renditions of Santa, it’s usually a mantle passed from father to son or by dudes who died. So what if the Hobo was Santa? We know humans work at the North Pole since the Polar Express exists and functions solely off human beings. This means that the Santa we meet could be a recruit from after Hobo’s death,” the user explains.
