Sign the Santa Claus Oath by Proxy

Recommended Posts

Michael Rielly

I see that this is the 2010 Oath. Will there be a 2011?

The Santa Claus Oath Book was sealed and placed into a time capsule back in November. You can still take the Oath at various events and meetings, but no more signatures will be added to the book.

Presented as a matter of information:

The Palm Tree Santas make a point of standing, holding hands and reciting the Santa Claus Oath as we begin any of our meetings.

We either provide a written copy for each person to read or Santa Dennis or Santa Jim will play one of our video recordings of the words of the Santa Claus Oath.

I personally feel like this creates a reminder to each of us why we should practice the Santa Claus Oath every day of the year.

If I may, I would urge each and every group of Santas whenever you may gather together, please consider reciting the Santa Claus Oath......

Maybe I am just an old Fuddy-Duddy, just being honest, above board and totally transparent...... but.......I still get a little tear in my eye whenever my fellow Santas, Mrs Clauses and Elves, (especially the elves) of the Palm Tree Santas stand, hold hands and recite the Santa Claus Oath.

I wish every group, everywhere would practice the same!

Just to echo a little of what Santa Bob said, reciting the Santa Claus Oath at our gatherings has become such a cherished tradition for us. We have expanded on the tradition in an unique way... At our most recent event, "Christmas in July" we were honored to be joined by approximately 12-15 of our newest members to the Palm Tree Santas Family, our Elves. These are young people ranging in ages 3 to 16 who are following in either their parents or grandparents footsteps in the Spirit of Christmas. Before we joined hands to recite the Santa Claus Oath, each Elf was called to the front of the room where the Official Elf Oath written by none other than the Legendary Santa, Santa Phillip Wenz, himself, was recited. Then each of our Elves was presented with an Elf Oath Certificate with their named on it as a memory of the event.

Besides the Santa Claus Oath…

The Elf Oath

As an Elf of the mystical and traditional spirit of Christmas, I do hereby affirm that I shall help spread the magic and folklore that is a part of the Santa Claus Legend. I will act as an emissary of love, hope and charity. I will always remember the true meaning of the Season by giving the gift of myself to each child or adult to whom I encounter. I will take my role seriously by serving honestly and faithfully. I pledge myself to these principals as an Elf to Santa Claus, the ambassador of St. Nicholas the gift giver of Myra.

Mrs. Santa Claus Pledge

As Mrs. Santa Claus I solemnly pledge myself, in the Spirit of St. Nicholas, to maintain and advance my vocation as a conveyor of the true meaning of Christmas to all that I may meet in my journeys and travels. I will devote myself in bringing a loving loyalty to the Santa Claus Legend and will do all in my power to encourage the sentiment that it is truly better to give than to receive. I will use my knowledge and love for Christmas to be a part of the magic of the Season and to be partners with Santa Claus in bringing a Loving, Joyful, and Happy Holiday to all. I will seek to see the enchanting wonder of each new day and seek to see that wonder in each child's eyes that I visit. I know that being Mrs. Santa Claus is a gift that I can give to children of all age and by undertaking this role I promise to create special memories, to the best of my abilities, for all that I shall encounter.

Greetings Guys

I have been looking the documents in reference to the Santa Oath. I have noticed that most of the literature is time sensitive to last year in October. I have read the oath and agree with it, Do we now sign it and pass it along. How does it all work a little help would be great. Have a fine day

Blessings

Wondering about the status of the electronic signature for the Santa Claus Oath that was taken at the Jim Yellig Workshop.

I'd like to sign it before I add any Buttons or refer to it on my cards.

Thanks...

Click here for the uploaded Santa Claus Oath Certificate.

I would suggest using a good quality paper for the best reproduction, making sure that the paper is geared towards your inkjet or lazier printer. A 24 lbs bright white works well for a finished copy. Make sure the PDF file loads all the way and it is at 100% size when you print.

My understanding is the Oath has been sealed as well. Will there be another chance to sign by proxy?

Yes, the Santa Claus Oath BOOK that contains the original signatures has been sealed in the time capsule. However, you can still sign the proxy. See the first post in this thread HERE

The Santa Claus Oath proxy has been updated for signing beyond the encapsulation that took place in 2010. You can find the PDF file here. Open the file, print it, and then follow the instructions to sign it and send it to me at the address listed as the Santa Claus Oath Signatory Chairman.

You will need Adobe Reader installed to open and print the PDF file. Let me know if you have any questions.

Dumb question but need to ask; do I turn in both the signed Oath and Proxy or just the proxy sheet?

The signed Oath is for you to keep and display as you wish. Just send the proxy page to me. This allows me to sign your name on one of the signature pages that will be included in the Oath book once it us unsealed again in 2035.

    • 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?
