hippie santa by glorifiedsnapshots hippie santa by glorifiedsnapshots
this is an old picture. but i love this guy and i felt like posting it. i found him standing on his peace pole in the middle of town. he was a sweet man, but as you can tell by the flowers and greenery in the background, this wasnt even close to christmas time... so yeah. hippie santa.

new york.2004

don't steal hippie santa. please.

addendum- i should point out that he is known as Grandpa Woodstock. He is incredibly sweet. and I love him. I have also seen him in a blue outfit that looks just like this one. Yay! Thankyougoodnight.

I think I've seen him before during the summer a few years ago. <3 I wish I still had the picture.

This brings back good memories, such a good shot of him.

I was going to say this is Grandpa Woodstock, but others beat me to saying it.

He goes to Rainbow Gatherings; I've seen him at several. He's amazing:) In 2005 at the Michigan gathering he helped some other hippies make me a flower wreath for my hair cause they thought I seemed a bit sad. I wasn't sad really, but I loved the wreath!!
