I have since I was a child been facinated with the Santa and Christmas. When I was a child my Uncle Phil wore the red suit and was Santa at all the family Christmas gatherings. It was so exciting as a child to have Santa show up right in the house.We all went to a departement store to get a picture but having him arrive during a family party at home was magical. My dad who had the appropriate build was Santa for the cub scout Christmas parties and later for his grand kids. When the grand kids wanted Grampy home when Santa arrived the role was turned over to me. Well that was 25 years ago and Uncle Phil and Dad have passed on but each got to see me work on my Santa presentation and give me advise. Every year I work to make a more realistic presenation. The nieces and nephews are now of the age for their own kids so the saga will continue keeping in the family Christmas tradition and love of the Santa magic.
