    Davy Crockett Fights Again

    As a fan of the Fess Parker Davy Crockett movies, I very much enjoyed this story! Give 'em the old Crockett charge.

    Way to weave the story of that time in your life and your brother's.

    Davy Crockett Fights Again

    I enjoyed your story. I have read other testimonials by you, and seen pictures of you as a U.S. soldier. Your story of Crockett affirms what I have always been told, and believe to be true, that country boys make the best soldiers.

    Davy Crockett Fights Again

    Being country boys, my two younger brothers and I found ourselves outside 365 days a year. Each morning during the school year, before we would head off to school, we had to water and feed the animals before a quick breakfast and then departure on the school bus. When we returned home it was another trip out to the animals, dinner, and then that country landscape opened to us for adventure. On the weekends and summer vacation that landscape was open for business all day long and we took full advantage of it. Some days we would be fighting Soviets and other days we would be reliving WWII,

One shot, all it took, his aim was on course, on the ground 'neath the tree it did lay. Now onward through snow to the Harmon ranch, the widow's heart to win this Christmas Eve His whole plan hinged on that mistletoe branch, he wanted her burdens to relieve.

    Final Santa Claus Oath Ceremony Anniversary

    Wow! I remember that statue. Attending the Jim Yellig Workshop was my first "big" Santa thing. I ordered my good suit from Sam in the exhibits and fell in love with the Santa community. The oath is a meaningful part of being a responsible Santa!

    Final Santa Claus Oath Ceremony Anniversary

    I wish I could have been present at that ceremony. On the 25th anniversary of its encapsulation on 11/06/2035, it will be removed. At that point, those who have participated in the Santa Claus Oath Signatory Proxy campaign since 11/06/2010 will have their signatures added to the Oath Book. So, if you embrace and believe in the tennents of the Santa Claus Oath AND you have yet to take advantage of the Signatory Proxy campaign, you still have plenty of time to do so.
  16. On this day ten years ago (11/6/2010), I had the privilege of gathering with many distinguished Santa Claus portrayers in Santa Claus, IN for the Final Santa Claus Oath Ceremony. The Santa Claus Oath is a set of principles that promote brotherhood and the highest ideals for portraying Santa Claus. The oath is the brainchild of Santa portrayer and Christmas archivist, Phillip L. Wenz. During its signatory period, the oath garnered over 2,500 original signers from around the world. The final oath ceremony marked the end of the signatory period, and the book of signatures was placed in a pla

    No, sir. Under the current design of the Terms & Conditions of every single social media platform, whatever you post becomes their property to use as they see fit. The Oath stands for something that cannot be misused, so we would never until that changes. And I don't see that ever changing.

    • Every Once in A While
      Every once in a while I see some flagrant abuses of Santa’s appearance and etiquette. It strikes me some men don’t care about how they act or portray the beloved character of Santa.

      Gentlemen, you undertake an awesome responsibility when you button up your Santa Suit. Don’t take it lighty!

      The “World” has an image of Santa as represented by illustrations, traditions and personal contact. Believe it or not, you’re being measured by those who see you for your authenticity.

      You’re fooling yourself if you believe that no one notices or cares if your bead is yellow or unkempt. Maybe you’re also missing a few of those pearly whites, or they are stained from tobacco products. Again, don’t fool yourself….kids notice everything! I have a gold crown capping one of my lower teeth. Every once in a while, I have an inquisitive youngster question what that gold thing is in my mouth. Years ago I thought it was well hidden however; kids have uncanny radar to pick out any of our flaws….

      You may be asking yourself, “What difference does it make? “It’s not the Christmas Season.” Maybe it isn’t however, If you’re representing Santa, you’re representing one of the most recognizable characters in the world. What you do reflects upon me and every Santa reader of this article. If you’re going to be recognized then do justice to the character we are reenacting.

      Over the years I have been a Santa, I have frequently been by told by people about the Santa they hired or saw which left a very poor expression. Most of their comments were predictable. Their Santa did not interact with the children as expected or he was unprepared. He was unanimated, had a dirty suit or lack luster beard. Obviously these are sure fire ways never to be called to this group again.

      Think about what impression you make as a Santa and pay attention to developing your character. You can become one of the best Santas in your area by learning everything about your character and performing from the heart.

      Always remember: It's not about you. It's about the children.
