It's not unlike a lot of Santas to be teared up, nor is it that unusual.

This year as my first year as a mall SC and the increased interaction.....I can honestly say everyday I meet someone,young or old, that has the tears flowing. (Note to self...need monogrammed handkerchiefs!!!)

I love you all - I truly do - but the public isn't going to buy this now.  How can anyway say this is 100% verified?  The news article states his Wife and his friend verified it. I think - for the public sake - unfortunately something else needs to come out.  The original article should have never been written without verified factual information.  I blame the media if this all turns out to be true.  I have no reason not to believe him. The News Sentinel stated they reached out to him for the story after a close source told them about it - why aren't they sharing who their trusted source was?  That would help end this whole thing... 

What's even worse - personally for me - why I am not trusting anymore of some of these Santa stories.  Could it be that we have a big black-eye story every single year.  Sad.  I truly hope this all works out.

I just hear this get tore apart on Glen Beck saying no one will dig out the proof due to if its not real they wouldn't want to be the one to put it out. They really put a bad spin on it that didn't sound good either way.

HIPA Laws would not allow for disclosure of any of this.  A death however becomes a matter of pubic record.

Some how I just look at all of this as a media plant with a motive to make Santa look bad.  It seems to happen every season...the Easter Bunny ? gets his/her share of this too.  Both holidays rooted in Christianity.

They are claiming its totally false on Glen Beck right now! No obituary no nothing, they are tearing it up.

The Santa involved, in my opinion, needs to make a statement either standing by the article, or make apologies if it is false.

It is detrimental to the Christmas industry and a lengthy debate and media attention only make it worse.

Remember, sensationalism sells in media circles as does bad news.  Media of a positive nature is advertising.

I thought we had this over and done with! Obviously the media wants to make waves with less than a week to Christmas Eve. I'm only saying this once: Stop it.

    • 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?

    • Backlash Building Against The Man Who Invented Christmas
      Backlash Building Against The Man Who Invented Christmas

      ChristmasWeekly.com
      September 7, 2017

      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.

    • Not Everyone Can Be Santa!
      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.

    • Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas
      Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas

      Christmas is going to be a little different this year for families whose traditions include visiting Santa at Bass Pro Shops. Paul Davis, who spent the last nine years as the Bass Pro Santa in Ashland, will not be there anymore.
