Recommended Posts

The bad puns or the disappointing poll results ... not sure which is more "hare"-raising.

I don't buy this at all. I'd like to see the actual survey questions. Honestly though...a "rabbit" is going to be cute and likeable regardless of if you celebrate Easter or not...where as "Santa" might actually evoke a negative response from those not wishing to celebrate the Christmas holiday with the Santa image.

"Approachable" is not the same as the most popular or most loved. I've asked a bunch of friends, colleagues, and students this afternoon and their "favorite" holiday "character" has been almost unanimously Santa, with one child saying the "tooth fairy" haha

Not saying I agree with the poll, but here is the source if anyone is interested:

Thanks, I saw who conducted the poll but I'm curious about the phrasing of the question(s)...I couldn't find anything.

I was conned into being the Easter (Scary) Bunny for my store. I will NEVER do this again. It was just creepy and the thought of having a fuzzy white butt with a pink pom pom tail. I have never witnessed that much fear in a child before. Not to mention it was 10x's hotter that padding up to portray Santa. Oh and forget talking. I accidentally asked a little boy if he had been a good boy..... Whoops..... wrong persona.

Given the cold winter we've had and a slow start to spring this cartoon made me chuckle:

Who would've ever guessed the pairing of the Easter bunny and Cadbury could outdo Santa Claus and Coca-Cola?

I guess rather than respond to the original post made here. Its just easier to make jokes about it. For me portraying Santa Claus is a serious thing for me. If the image is being hurt, I'm being hurt. I dont want to see this happen. Maybe its just better to make jokes about it and not put any thought into it about how we can keep this from happening. I see easy resolutions to the issues, but cant do it alone. I can only be me, I can't be you all. So its either get serious or just make jokes about it all. What do I know. I guess you all know better than me. Maybe I should just go buy a rabbit costume.

    • 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?
