What is Mrs. Claus first name?

Recommended Posts

Cayman Claus

My mom is my Mrs. Claus, at least as of last year when she called me and said, "I want to come to Cayman for a week while you're doing your Santa stuff... and if you don't mind, I'd like to be Mrs. Claus and read children's books..." We had a lot of fun and she'll be coming back again this year with two of my teenage nieces who will be playing Miss Claus and and an elf. I kept fearing that someone would ask Santa and Mrs. Claus to share a big romantic kiss that they could take a picture of, but thankfully that didn't happen. Hugs and pecks on the cheek, no problem...

In the Christmas chronicles by Jeff Guinn her name is Layla

In the Santa Clause trilogy her name was Carol

Accoording to Wikipedia her name is Mary Lynne Anastasia Claus

She is also called mama by santa

I guess it all depends on the movie she's in or what part of the world you're in

In the earliest poems from the 1840s, I read where she was named "Mollie". I will have to find the poem in my files. KAtherine Lee Bates called her "Goody" which means "good wife." Indeed she is a good wife. My Mrs. Claus is names Michelle.

I have heard that Mrs. Claus was called Martha as well as Mary. In the children's movie "Santa Claus comes to Town" Mrs Claus name is Jessica and she used to be the school teacher in the town.

I have had many children ask me what Mrs. Claus name is and I remind them of the movie. I make a game out of it and ask them what color hair she once had and then what did she do for work before she met me as a young elf.

This really gets the children thinking and most of them recall her from that movie.

EXCELLENT! Yesterday I had this question proposed to me. This was AFTER I had already had them on my lap and they were done and the little boy came back just to ask this. Without batting an eye, I said "Velma". (For no real reason as I had to say SOMEthing. :) )

Then he said okay and walked away back to his family.

I wondering if he was quizzing me now based on the Rankin Bass special you noted. I'm definitely going to remember that now. It never really made sense that they named her Jessica. :)

Anyway I will be more prepared next time! :D

Santa DCallender

I was thinking about this and I thought of my mother she signed her name Mrs. Delbert Callender. Not to be a sexist but in the days gone by most women used their husband's name in public.

Enough about my mother I was just thinking that back when Santa was young (in more ways then one) people did not always give the Mrs. a first name because she was Mrs. Santa Claus, you know Santa's wife. I have also known a bunch of old guys call their wife Mamma as the mother of his children. Not in my house as I was told "I am not your Mother.".

Up until a few years ago it was propper to address invitations to Mr. and Mrs. David Callender, now some come addressed to David and Nancy Callender or Mr. David and Mrs. Nancy Callender.

Also when children were seen but not heard ALL adults were addressed as Mr. or Mrs. they were not told the first names of adults or at least not until they were much older.

It is just my toughts on why Mrs. Santa Claus does not have a first name.

Very good thoughts on this and probably why no name indeed. Also Mrs. Claus was an afterthought since the original poem created Santa Claus and everything else was just embellishing the story and filling in the blanks. The "What's his home life like?" :)

hahahahaha I can just see your wife backhanding you for calling her Mama.

Even further these days I see women keeping their own name or using lots of hypenated versions and such.

But really...Mrs. Santa Claus is a very good answer I think.

My Mrs. Claus goes by "Mrs. C" or Emily.  My daughter is Laura, the "Ice Princess"  who is married to "Dan-wyl" the Elven King.

 

They also have their own costuming and frequently go with us to events.

I like Merry since her maiden name was Christmas.  I remember a version of that from Peanuts' Charlie Brown Christmas.  I call my Mrs. Claus "Sweetie Pie" or "Sugar Buns."

We studied a long time afore we decided on Bestemor Claus. Since Judi is of Norweigen descent ---how fitting

The Nissen at C.W.Howard School (FRED) helped us figgure this one out.

I always just call her "Mrs. Claus" when we do an appearance together and she's in character.  My favorite Mrs. Claus from is Jessica from Santa Claus is Coming to Town.

I usually go with the "Jessica" from the Rankin-Bass special.  Virginia, however, is good because of the "Yes Virginia" editorial and Mary is a great choice to remind everyone of the true meaning of Christmas.

    • 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.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      Is it time to start calling out Bad Santas?

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?
