Did you know that Easter Bunnies in the off season work at I-HOP?  And their favorite style of music is Hip-Hop...

Santa isn't happy about this poll.

Hmmm, makes me think a little. The just before Easter thing is real. The Easter Bunny is clearly a character and kids know this, they don't think the character is real. The bunny is non-judgmental, he/she doesn't keep a nice or naughty list. There is nothing like a basketful of candy with a chocolate Easter bunny to turn a kids head. I believe the survey, not so much the conclusions. The kids that come to see me at Santas Workshop at the North Pole NY are either really happy to see me or genuinely afraid, at leas until I warm them up' - Pete

I do want to point out it was only two percentage points, as well as being days before Easter. Also, there aren't any really loud voices denouncing the Easter Bunny as a symbol of the corruption and commercializing of a holiday the way some attempt to beat Santa over the head. The Easter Bunny is seen more as a candy-giving mascot, and since 90% (if not 99.999%) of the time, the Easter Bunny doesn't say or do anything other than pose for photos and hand out candy, so it is almost impossible for him to unintentionally cause controversy. (Also, few children send the Easter bunny wish lists that can total several hundred bucks worth of merchandise expecting to wake up with it in their Easter basket.)

Most Easter Bunnies are very busy right now.  They miss their favorite shows.  So they love the HOPPER!

To clarify:

I do think that there is over saturation of Santa throughout the year. It is frustrating, I am to the point that I am very cautious about accepting off-season Santa appearances unless the charity or cause is presenting a definitely strong reason for Santa to visit outside of Advent/Christmas.

As for the poll, yes there are many highly respected firms that carry out polls, but polls are easily squewed. Especially at this time of the year. As a group, I believe we should be concerned how and when the image of Santa should be present and how Santa is presented.

For me this situation is very difficult to make a black and white judgment call. As a young child, I remember the Christmas Mummers coming and visiting our neighbourhood. Most of them where dressed as Santa, poorly I thought (even at age 5, I had definite ideas of how Santa looked - tells me why I am doing what I am doing now). But, in that group I believed the real Santa was with the crowd at the end of the line. Not because he was handing us gift stockings but because he had something special about who he was I can't explain it, but out of a group of 15-20 men, there was the one real Santa. I recognize that was over 40 years ago. I think we live in a more skeptical society, a society that is very concerned over security. I am one of these who 9/11 has changed how I travel and view strangers. I don't have an answer, but I does hurt me when I read about parents trying to explain to their children who are believers why is Santa here in June or why are all those people dressed as Santa. This poll is simply a means for a healthy discussion about off season presence.

I have to say it.  Maybe the key is that the Easter Bunny never opens his mouth.  :lol2:

Well, Elf w/o Jingles, this, once more, is what you get for opening up the proverbial can of worms. Knowing my fellow Kringles, I imagine nobody's gonna wanna hear "We're #2!" For the most part, I certainly don't. While I love the Easter jokes posted here as a result of the preceding excerpt, I do feel a tad silly. Santa Claus remains #1 for me --- and that's the way (uh huh, uh huh) I like it (uh huh, uh huh)!

    • 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?
