Final Santa Claus Oath Ceremony

Recommended Posts

Santa Bob Elkin

Phil, I have been asked many times and it seems I am being asked more and more about signing the Oath by folks who did not get the chance to attach their signature to the signatory page of the Santa Claus Oath before the final Oath Ceremony last November. I would imagine you have also been asked many times...as I know others have asked...

I believe it might be prudent to consider if there is some possibility you could create something that would allow these folks who want to follow the eight principles of the Santa Claus Oath to be afforded the honored opportunity to sign the Oath?

I don't know if this might be possible, but as I said a lot of Santas have asked me, so I am asking you. Thanks!

Doesn't that kind of defeat the whole point of a permanent Time Capsule?

I don't know, the Time Capsule is dated November 6th, 2010 and has the signatures of everyone up to that date, could not something else be created that would not interfere with the history of the Time Capsule, yet would allow all the folks who come after Nov 6th 2010 an opportunity to sign, believe in and practice the Santa Claus Oath??

The Palm Tree Santas stand, hold hands and recite the Santa Claus Oath at each of our gatherings, from time to time we have new folks who join us, just because they were not involved before Nov 6th, 2010, they can never sign the Santa Claus Oath??

I believe we should honor the Santa Claus Oath's history and yet still if we can find a way to keep it alive and current among all of us, won't that be better for the Santa Claus community?

Actually, I just had an idea that may work. I will discuss with Phil later.

I would as well, I was not a member here nor knowledgeable of such the oath at the time that it was sealed, If there is a way to have a 2nd generation Santa Claus Oath signatory book started that would be great, then when it reaches a certain age, start yet another. To preserve all those previous, and current ones.

Now something else I just reminded myself to do, contact Palm Tree Santas about joining the ranks

    • 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?

      Backlash Building Against The Man Who Invented Christmas

      EXCERPT:

      There is a new Christmas movie headed to theaters this Christmas about Charles Dickens about his creation of A Christmas Carol and Christmas purists hate it. Already.

      The film has a stellar cast that features the dreamy-eyed Dan Stevens as Dickens and the legendary Christopher Plummer as Scrooge. Here is the trailer:

      “This is a very presumptuous film,” said Christmas fan and would-be film critic, Arnold Yates, via MSN. “Charles Dickens was great but he certainly didn’t invent Christmas. Bah Humbug!”

      That sentiment is growing online as the preview makes the rounds.

    • Seeking recognition
      Seeking recognition is a downward path for a legend who performs his tasks in the veil of night.

      Recently, a fellow portrayer of Santa posted an image on Facebook that they constructed to look like a magazine cover with him on it and several story snips like many publications have on their covers.  You may have seen it if they are your friend on Facebook.  It looks okay.  The composition is good, but the rendering when uploading it to Facebook became distorted it and it is quite pixelated when you look at it from a development standpoint.

    • Not Everyone Can Be Santa!
      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Infringement? Make up your own mind.
      In the last couple of days, on several different social media and bidding sites, an item has been offered for sale that in my opinion is cause for suspicion.  I would like to bring that product to your attention.

      There is some disagreement over whether or not it is an infringement or not.  I believe it is close enough to be considered as an infringement, but that is not the only the reason behind my post.

    • Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas
      Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas

      Christmas is going to be a little different this year for families whose traditions include visiting Santa at Bass Pro Shops. Paul Davis, who spent the last nine years as the Bass Pro Santa in Ashland, will not be there anymore.
