If you love Christmas and you love travelling, you are going to find this job that pays you to test out festive markets across Europe unbelievable. And trust us, its snow joke.
Tour company Civitatis is looking to find a Christmas-obsessed someone to head off to the likes of Prague, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest and test all the mulled wine and festive treats, as well as suss out the general atmosphere of each.
Tough job, but someone's got to do it.
The company is after feedback from whoever lands the role to help them develop their Christmas market tour offering ready for 2020.
And not only will you be paid €200 (£170) for your time, you will have all accommodation provided, plus transfers between the cities. It's what Christmas dreams are made of!
Just make sure you apply by the deadline - which is midnight tonight.
The tour will begin in Prague, where you'll visit the delightful market in the Old Town Square, before making your way to Vienna and checking out the Belvedere Palace Christmas Market which looks beautiful, thanks to its striking baroque palace backdrop.
Next, you'll find yourself surrounded by festive cheer at the Rathausplatz Christmas Market, which is the largest in Vienna, before heading on to Bratislava to check out the Old Town Square Christmas Market.
Lastly, you'll find yourself in Budapest where you'll end on a high of two Christmas markets, including the Budapest Christmas Fair and Winter Festival in Vörösmarty Square, as well as the Basilica Christmas Market next door to - you guessed it - St Stephen's Basilica.
The only catch is that it's open to everyone in the world, so you're going to need to stand out to win the role. Plus, you need to be free from 16th to the 20th December as that's when the trip is set to take place.
The company said of the offer: "We are looking for someone who eats, sleeps and breathes Christmas cheer.
"We want the successful candidate to bring their festive spirit and enthusiasm to fully explore everything that Europe's fabulous Christmas markets have to offer, and report back to us on the best way in which we can continue to provide Christmas market tours to our customers."
So grinches, please stay at home; this is for festive fiends among us. So if you find yourself spreading festive cheer wherever you go like Elf, then we reckon this might just be the job for you.
You can apply here, with a covering letter explaining what you love most about Christmas markets and a short fun 'CV' detailing all your festive skills and experience. Very important stuff.
Just remember to do so by the deadline of midnight tonight. Good luck!
