Sign the Santa Claus Oath by Proxy

Recommended Posts

Santa Vern Crawford

Santa Felix,

I still have not formally signed the oath, as to me it is such a meaningful act that I have been delaying signing until a special occasion. I assume that the upcoming conference in Albion would be an appropriate occasion, and look forward to meetings and fellowship other Clauses.

Still learning my way around ClausNet, several days ago I sent my registration to Santa Everett, but haven't found an acknowledgement yet.

I believe I saw where you and your Mrs. Cluse are also attending and look forward to meeting you both there.

Hugs,

Santa Vern

I am not aware that there is a signing of the Oath during this Albion, NY event, but the agenda has yet to be released.

 

As for your acknowledgement, it may not come for a while.  I registered right after it was first announced but did not get an acknowledgement until months later.

 

If things work out for me in my daily job, I will be there and would love to meet you, too.

No notarization necessary, Charlie.  Just get your wife to fill out the witness.

Sounds good it will be in the mail tomarrow. Thanks again.

I think Mike is updating it this evening.  I sent him a message that my address, as the Oath Proxy Chairman, is old in this version and needed to be updated.  He may have taken it down to update it and will be putting it back up with the correct address.

Pardon the lack of knowledge from a newbie. What is the Oath? What do we do when we sign it? The description seemed to tie it to an event that happened in 2010.

Hello all. Could anyone offer advice on when and where the oath signing ceremonies take place? I am happy to fill out the form and sign by proxy, but it sounds like a wonderful occasion to be part of the ceremony. Thank you!

They used to happen at national get-togethers but I am not sure if they still do.  I know that many state-wide groups still do them.  You should check with yours.

Interesting, I thought this had stopped in 2010. Something to look forward doing!

Thank you.

    • George Washington's 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation
      On October 3, 1789, President George Washington issued a proclamation naming Thursday, November 26, 1789, a national day of Thanksgiving.

      In it, Washington called upon all Americans to express their gratitude for a happy conclusion to the nation's war of independence and the successful ratification of the United States Constitution. Especially this year, as we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, we should reflect on the full meaning of the day. Let’s strive to be truly thankful in our hearts this Thanksgiving.

      What better way to enter the holiday season?

    • Coping With Depression Before and After The Christmas Season
      With all of the joy, love, wonder, and excitement that Christmas brings the "professional" Santa; it can, for some, bring a bit of sadness, anxiety, and overall depression too. Now, many might think, "What!? How can Santa be depressed...it's Christmas!" but it truly can happen and it's good to inventory those feelings and problem solve what an appropriate solution might be.

    • 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.

      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.
