More for Mrs. Claus

Recommended Posts

MrsClaus2014

I love being Mrs. Claus, but like the shirt says we do all the work and Santa gets all the glory.  Is there any Mrs. Claus groups out there where we can get some tips, have fun and be recognized??  I didn't even know until recently that there is a Mrs. Claus Oath.  Was just at a Conference, and they only gave a certain few the opportunity to recite the oath.

At one of my regular visits each year, the company supplies a Mrs. Claus to help Santa. This is the only interaction I get with Santa's wife. Because she is an employee of the company, she knows the youngsters and their parents and makes it a lot easier for me. 
She meets me outside the room and we walk in arm in arm, until the first little one races up to meet us...usually Santa. But there are a lot who also go up to Mrs. Claus. 

I have been doing this company's Christmas Party for the past 7 years and I also am used to the youngsters as I have seen them grow up. It is a pleasure to work with this Mrs. Claus.One this one occasion I almost wish that she would be available everywhere I go. 

Ladies, you are most wanted to spend time with Santa. By working in close partnership, you are also wanted and welcomed to the sittings. Yes, Santa gets to sit and talk with the kiddies and hand out the presents, but in my case, my supplied Mrs Claus, gives me those presents and we both wish the child/children a merry Christmas.

Ol Santa

Go ahead, make my day!

 

Darlin' you don't need a special Mrs. Claus Organization.   All you need is to get a bunch of those gals together and

then organize into one.   Contact my Sister whose been my Mrs. Claus for a bunch of years.   She's great at that

kind of stuff.   Send me a PM and I send you her info!

 

Ol' Santa

I've always worked solo with the exception of some occasional elves. Working with a Mrs. C, would certainly enhance my visits. Logistically speaking this works well for husband and wives and is why there are so many married teams. Are there any teams out there who appear regularly that are not couples in real life?

There are lots of Mrs. C's out there who are very talented and appear as a stand alone portrayers. I could learn a lot from them, it would be fun. What an offering this could be for a photographer in early season studio sessions.

I'm happy to see stand alone and coupled Mrs. C's being more active in ClausNet.

I have been a Mrs. Claus for a while. I also didn't now that there was an oath either. I love playing her. My husband and I were at the conference in Albion, NY. In April, I  enjoyed meeting with other Mrs. Clauses.  the things you learn from talking to other people help out when playing her. I enjoy shearing what I know and learn what other people do also.

When booking events where Mrs Claus and I will both be there I stress the importance of the set-up. I want Mrs. Claus in her own throne next to mine and I want to have a small gift, often a sticker, for the children. I also place the child on the knee nearest Mrs. Claus so child id between us. This help Ms. Claus get more attention... the gilrs, young and old all love Mrs. Claus.

I remember the first year I had my Santa outfit. Kathy told me if I did go outside and wave at the kids and give out candy canes she would dress up too and join me. Welllllll, to make a long story short, I did and she didn't. She came out of the house to laugh and take a few pictures and went back in the house. I went from giving out candy canes in the yard to school and assisted living home visits. She says she can't find an outfit she is happy with. I would say she is "Chicken", bit anyone who can black out some of her teeth and play a country bumpkin in church has the nerves. Plus, all the other plays she has put on in the church, most of which she writes, directs and acts in.

While there are chapters and lectures in many schools about what Mrs. Claus can do as a performer, There is a new Mrs.Claus school formed out in Arizona by

Nora Penny O'Malley- Kovach. If you are serious about learning more about this performance venue, Contact her!

Marketing for gigs for Santa and Mrs C are really not much different that just marketing for Santa gigs. I suggest you peruse the Marketing and Promotions forum under Santa's Workshop.

    • 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?
      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?
