Easter bunny in mall brawl caught on video

Published March 21, 2016

EXCERPT:

The Easter bunny got caught up in a mall brawl in New Jersey, and it all apparently started with an angry dad.

Video posted on Twitter Sunday evening showed a chaotic scene at the Newport Centre in Jersey City, near an area set up to take photos with the Easter bunny.

It started when a 1-year-old girl slipped out of her chair after posing for a photo with the bunny, city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said. The girl's father reportedly shouted at the 22-year-old man in the costume, then started throwing punches.

This was a Noerr mall Bunny and set. The sad thing is both gentlemen involved had warrants out on them. Not sure how the bunny passed the background check.

Desperation to Rabbit Up the set maybe.  

Sounds like a couple of Hot Heads involved here.

Sad that the reported just HAD to comment forget Bad Santa..... Bad Easter Bunny.  So do you think we will hear Bad Bunny....now its the BAD Santa Next November or December?  I have my doubts.

 

I am often worried what might happen should a squirming child (who is thrust upon me) might wiggle out of my grasp while in the chair.  Law suit on the way, get a Background Check, and get insurance.  I hate it when a (sorry to say, but more often a Mother) forces her child upon me when clearly there is NO enjoyment for the child in the visit.  I refer to children like these as a human octopus, legs and arms in abundance and going everywhere!  If you have spent any length of time in a chair as Santa you know the kind of mother and child I am typing about here.  I usually stand up and don't extend my arms or hands to receive a child in a situation such as this.

Bunny Rabbits and Santa have a lot more common than you might think!

The Parents do this all the time with Pony Rides - force an unwilling or frightened child. All because they want the photo - that's all people want is a photo. Don't worry about safety - just get the picture.

Steve,

The parent wants the photo AND hold you (us) responsible AND liable.

I know - and agree with you Marty. The difference is, when I have a live animal in my hands I am the boss. I will step in and refuse a kid that I think would be unsafe. Unfortunately I'm not the very popular during times like that - or when I don't let member of the public walk their dog up to animals on display. People are reckless - ultimately don't take any responsibility. Because like you said, and my insurance company, ultimately I'm responsible - so the buck stops with me:)

I guess what I meant is, when I have an animal, I'm not as restricted as Santa might be, to break character. Although I try and stay polite, I do what it takes to take charge.

Some good points made in the comments. Ultimately WE are the ones that are responsible in keeping our craft respectful.

      Think you could play the part of an elf? What about a toy soldier? Enchant Christmas is hiring! Billed as the world’s largest Christmas light maze, Enchant Christmas is hiring hundreds of people for character actors and customer service roles. Interviews are expected to take place during the next few weeks at Tropicana Field, where the event will take place.

      Availability must be open for at least either Christmas Eve or Day, among other requirements. From Nov. 22 to Dec. 29, the ballpark’s outfield is slated to be outfitted with a massive light display and a Christmas market with more than 60 local food and merchant vendors.

      Early Christmas display causes Monroe resident to call the city
      Ken Brown
      Fox19
      October 5, 2019
      EXCERPT:

       Christmas in September ... It’s not a holiday you hear celebrated often in the fall, but the Schmitt family Christmas celebration took place in Monroe in mid-September this year.
      “Every year we get together for Christmas and we’ve done this for as long as I’ve known,” Monroe resident David Schmitt said.
      Schmitt is a native of Wisconsin and most of his family still lives there. At 54 years old, Schmitt is the youngest of nine siblings who still try to get together to celebrate the Christmas holiday each year.
      “The drive to Wisconsin, where my family is from, it’s kind of hard to do in December,” Schmitt said. “So this year we said, ‘How about Christmas in Ohio?’ September, good driving weather ... nice weather ... I thought, ‘Perfect, everybody could come here for Christmas.’”
      “As everybody gets older we don’t get to see each other as often and living so far away from each other. It was really wonderful to just be able to have everyone together,” Donna Schmitt said.
      To celebrate the early holiday family gathering, Schmitt decorated his house with lights and ornaments three months ahead of the actual Christmas holiday. The early appearance of Christmas décor had at least one resident concerned enough to call the city of Monroe.
      “All you had to do was pull in the driveway and ask us and we would have told you... probably offered you a beverage,” Donna said.
      The city asked the Schmitt’s to remove some decorations that were too close to the road. No citations were issued and the family was given 60 days to remove any other decorations that were not in compliance with the city code.

    • 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?
