I suppose I should blog more often. Anyway, Christmas is fast approaching and it will be here before we know it.
I, like many of my fellow Santa and Mrs.Claus' are preparing for the season.
I've already started getting promotional materials together and planning on how I can get more business this year. Even though I've been Santa for almost seven seasons ( mostly for family) I still feel like I'm new at this and I have a whole lot to learn. I expect to have more opportunities this year, at least I hope so. Maybe some that will pay.
This last year I got a new suit, made my own boots and got a new yak wig set. Just recently I acquired a new human hair beard so I'm going to give it a try and see what happens, I really like the look.
I still need to get some professional pics because I would eventually like to have a website or at least a web presence of some kind. We'll see, the website will probably be next year.
Anyway, this Santa is going to be very busy between now and Christmas for sure. Wish me well.
I wish everyone well in their preparations too.
It has been a while since I've been around, sorry to be gone so long.
Life has just been very busy the last couple of months. I hope all is well with everyone and I wish everyone a Merry Christmas season.
Just remember as you spread joy to all the young and young at heart you take some time for yourself.
Always remember it started with Jesus, the greatest Gift Giver, 2,000 years ago.
Glory to God in the highest !
Hello, it's been a while since my last post so I hope all is well with everyone. I was out tonight doing a little shopping and noticed Christmas decorations for sale. Oh boy oh boy Christmas is almost here !!! Wow, this year has flown by faster than Comit and Cupid.
My wife once asked me why I'm so crazy about Santa. Well, I told her that goes way back to my chidhood and I just never grew out of it like so many people do.
First, Christmas to me is absolutly the most wonderful time of the year, I love it. I love the lights, the song's, the food, the giving of gift's, etc.... but what I love the most is celebrating the birth of Jesus my Savior. He is the ultimate gift !
Now Santa to me just inbodies everything about Christmas that I love. I've always believed in Santa and what he means to so many people all around the world. When I am Santa I love to see the the smiles and the love and hope in the children's eye's. When I was a child I remember my heart beating with excitement as I waited to see and talk to Santa.
During the Christmas season I'll walk through different malls, stores, ect... to watch Santa's interacting with their visitor's just to relive in my mind those times when I visited Santa when I was a child.
I think I knew from an early age that one day I would put on the red suit myself. The first time I "dressed" up as Santa I was about thirteen, I think. I made a suit out of everything I could find. An old jacket and red pajama bottoms became my suit and I ripped the stuffing out of an old sleeping bag to fashion a beard and mustache to finish the look. My mom took pictures but I have no idea where they are now.
In 2003 I decided it was time to finally become Santa. It was Christmas eve and I arrived at our house and suprised my son, it was a great moment when he greeted me at the door with his mom. He was in total shock ! He just stood there and stared at me in disbelief, it truly was a great moment. Eventually I did get to enter the house to visit with him and give him and his older sister a gift. Needless to say after that I was totaly hooked and now I just want to continue to be all I can be to my family and others as I portray tne jolly old elf
