    It's A Wonderful Life (It's A Wonderful Movie) has behind the scenes stills, and the gallery and some backstory are available HERE for your viewing/reading pleasure. Hope it distracts you a bit from all of the chaos the world has to offer lately...

    If all you look for is evil , wrong, or offensive then that is all you will find. Times are strange, with the virus, and so many people out of work or working from home trying to hold things together with little or no social outlet, people are stressed to the limits. Most of us are older, we've been around awhile, we've seen the troubles of the late 60's, the troubles that came in the 70's with the war in Viet Nam and each decade seems to bring it's own crisis, but some how we have survived and learned that not every thing is as it seems to be. As for myself, I'm going to look for what is good in people. And hope that come this Christmas we will find hope in the true meaning of this time we celebrate, that Christ brought the gift of hope to us among many others and I think right now hope is what we need the most of.

    I agree. There is a bunch of bullies out there with time on their hands that want to cause as much trouble as possible.

    This honor has nothing to do with social media. It has everything to do with giving of yourself to others as Santa. Being in this hall is not a goal of mine, but I certainly would be honored if I were selected some day. I do not feel I am anywhere near the level of others who have been honored. And, just to make sure you know, someone has to nominate you for consideration even before they look at you. Again, social media has nothing to do with being honored.

    Sadly, with the way it's been going, it figures that 2020 would end this way? But, you know what? Christmas, the celebration of the birth of Christ, still exists.

    I read an interesting study talking about childcare in the early 90s - how it had shifted to more of a day care group style - and often the kid that screamed loudest got the attention they wanted - well - those kids have now grown up and they are still acting the way they learned in day care - screaming and throwing tantrums to get what they want - the end justifies the means . . . Civil discourse is a dying art 😞

    Well, it's gotten out of hand and I am sick of it. Just to be honest. Screaming and accusing others, dead or alive, of things is ridiculous, hateful, and nonproductive.

    Each month, our Featured Member section profiles a ClausNet member. Members are chosen totally at random by me and the staff. Once selected as Featured Member of the Month, we interview the candidate and post the interview here. This is a wonderful way to get to know your fellow ClausNet members! We are happy to announce our ClausNet Featured Member for July 2020 is TexasSanta! TexasSanta Featured ClausNet Member – July 2020 Profile: TexasSanta Real Name: James Location: Aledo, Texas USA ClausNet member since: December 21, 2011 Community Reputation (as of today): 233 – Outstanding! Membership Level: Member Website: kringleandco.com Facebook: @KringleAndCompanyRanch July 2020’s Featured Member of the Month has been stepping in for the big guy since 2006. TexasSanta aka James joined the ClausNet community in 2011 and has been a contributing member ever since. We caught up with Santa James a few weeks back and here is what he had to say... ClausNet: How long have you been portraying Santa Claus and how did you get started? TexasSanta: "I began in 2006. I was one of the only volunteers who would be willing to wear the suit at a Marine Corps unit event. Since my beard was short and closely cropped, I wore the suit rental beard which was horrible. My wife said I could do a better beard, so I began letting mine go. Each and every year I always tried to add additional elements that would improve my ability to represent the Spirit of Santa. It finally hit home when, while I was in a Walmart a few years later and a child came running up and tugged on my pants leg. I knelt down and said "STOP IT YOU CREEP" actually it was not that way, but it always makes my eyes leak when I recount the story. I became a purveyor of the Spirit of Santa at that time. It has been the 3rd best decision of my life." ClausNet: What or who are your influences on your portrayal of Santa Claus? TexasSanta: "I look around at times and wonder, why can I not look like some of the guys here on ClausNet. Then I remember what my clients always tell me. We did not hire you to look like Santa. We hired you to be like Santa. I have a blast with my children. We joke and cutup and have FUN. I have my more serious side for the somber visits and the children who are asking the hard questions about family and sickness. I let them be children and play with the cool toys like sleigh horses or anything else my helpers and I brought out to the event. My goal is not to be a role model or a copier of some other Santa. My goal is to ensure that the children and their parents have an authentic experience with someone who genuinely cares about them and is there to be the best Santa the child needs at the time." ClausNet: What do you enjoy most about being Santa Claus? TexasSanta: "I most enjoy walking quietly into the location, whether a ballroom, pool room or living room and just picking out the parent who will be the most problem. Walking over to them and telling them that it is there turn to tell Santa what they want. Adults have dreams and desires as well and sometimes Santa needs to remind the adults about how Santa listens to their dreams just as Santa listens to their children. While the recognition is great and the adoration from the children is wonderful the most important feeling I get when I leave an event is whose life did, I make better by spending time with them. 14 years and I have 6 of my original families still scheduling visits with their college age children. Something must have clicked for them." ClausNet: What do you enjoy the LEAST about being Santa Claus? TexasSanta: "It has been stated by others that dead time is the worst. Imagine having 3 trucks, 6 helpers, live horses, a sleigh and having to loiter in a major city as you wait 2 hours to head to the next location. Even when I am solo, as I am 80% of the time, the waiting in a parking lot before you head to an HOA is awkward at best. Disturbing to some parents also." ClausNet: What is your most memorable visit? TexasSanta: "My most memorable visit was also my least favorite visit in 14 years. It was held on the Northside of a major city in DFW. The attendees were majority Hispanic. We were all having a great time, and everyone was enjoying the event immensely. One of the fathers comes wandering up and leans in close to tell me in broken English, ‘You know, if my daughter does not get what she wants I will hunt you down and kill you’. Now I understand why the local PD was downstairs and patrolling the parking lot." ClausNet: Do you have a favorite gig? TexasSanta: "I love doing home visits. Most of my work is home visits and I try just as hard to build relationships with the adults as I do the children. One family comes to mind. They enjoy me coming into their life and making me a part of their family for the 2 hours I spend with them. The time never creeps by. Usually the mother must come to me and say Santa James, you need to go to your next family. It is an amazing family and the past six years with them has been truly wonderful." ClausNet: What is your dream gig? TexasSanta: "My dream event is one where the time parameters are set and I show up and we just GO! From the time I arrive until I depart, we are focused on celebrating Christmas. Dancing, singing, telling stories, cracking jokes (about the parents of course) and just experiencing the Joy and the Love of the Season. It's not just a dream, for many of my log time clients this is their reality." ClausNet: What keeps you busy when you are not being Santa? TexasSanta: "I spend the entire time away from the suit building additional sets, tools and technology to make the next Season of visiting out due the last one. I drive the tractor for my wife's garden plot, as well as other farm chores. I am always thinking how to positively impact others." ClausNet: What are your hobbies / interests? TexasSanta: "My interests are military families, special needs children and helping out in church activities by being part of that 10% you hear about. My hobbies are technology issues and designing things for use in Santa events that often make people scratch their head. Until they see it!" ClausNet: What is your favorite color? TexasSanta: "My favorite current color is Purple. In today’s times, it seems you must be Blue or Red. I refuse to be labeled so I am purple." ClausNet: What is your favorite food? TexasSanta: "My favorite food is Brisket. Not ribs. Not Beans but just good old smoked brisket. Not your brisket. My brisket!" ClausNet: Coke or Pepsi? TexasSanta: "Dr. Pepper 10. That way it won't mess with my metformin... right?." ClausNet: What is your favorite cookie? TexasSanta: "I enjoy soft cookies. Peanut butter, red velvet snickerdoodles." ClausNet: What is your favorite movie? TexasSanta: "Anything from the MCU or Star Wars universes." ClausNet: Do you have a favorite Christmas movie? TexasSanta: "I enjoy many of the Christmas movies. Some old ones as well as some of the newer. I honestly cannot think of a movie I would drop anything for to sit through and watch though.’" ClausNet: What is your favorite Christmas song? TexasSanta: "The Little Drummer Boy by For King and Country." ClausNet: What was the last book that you read? TexasSanta: "Not a big book reader. Bad eyesight makes it quite problematic. The last book I read and studied was the book of Judges from the Old Testament as part of a men's bible study." ClausNet: What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? TexasSanta: "Make my radio perfect body appear on YouTube and become a Millionaire.... No? It doesn't work like that?... Silver Bells!" ClausNet: What profession would you not like to attempt? TexasSanta: "Anything with having to do with convincing someone something in these challenging times." ClausNet: What were some of your favorite toys as a child? TexasSanta: "A bicycle and a TRS-80 computer from Radio Shack." ClausNet: What is your most memorable experience of Santa while growing up? TexasSanta: "I have no memorable experiences visiting Santa. My family never did that." ClausNet: What is the hardest question you have gotten as Santa Claus and what was your response? TexasSanta: "’Santa, why won't you stop my father from getting drunk for me?’ Because, Santa cannot do that for him but Santa will pray that a good friend of his helps your father out." ClausNet: What is the strangest request you have gotten as Santa Claus? TexasSanta: "The ever present iPad request. I tell them to look at their parents and they see them on their tablets working and emailing. I ask the children, do they want to be like their parents and work all the time? What TOY do you want? That always gets the toy mid going." ClausNet: How did you find ClausNet? TexasSanta: " A friend who used to be here." ClausNet: And what do you like most about ClausNet? TexasSanta: "The users will not be shy when you ask for an opinion on something." ClausNet: Is there a Santa or Mrs. Claus over the years that you admire or has inspired you? Can you tell us a little bit about him/her? TexasSanta: " I have seen too many that were the polar opposite of what I wanted to be. Not humble and forgetting that they were not Santa. Haughty, proud, conceited and feeling as though they were the PERFECT Santa. They inspired me to be the best Spirit of Santa I can be, with or without pay." ClausNet: What advice can you give to a first time Santa or Mrs. Claus? TexasSanta: "Ask for advice. Get opinions. Have the strength of character to know when you are falling short and know that everyone has been down this road before. But most importantly, be willing to fail miserably so that you try be better the next time." Thank you James! Everyone, please join me in congratulating TexasSanta, our ClausNet Featured Member of the Month for July 2020!

    Mom told me she learned to appreciate football on TV so she could spend that time with dad. I learned to appreciate Hallmark movies so I can spend that time with my wife. I'm looking forward to Christmas in July.

    Often, while it's still fresh in my mind, I'll write down after the season what worked, what didn't, what I can do better and what I want to avoid. This gives me a better idea of what I want to accomplish for next season. So, I guess you could say I start planning for Christmas in January!

    I think there are very few people who would flat out call Christmas racist. This list reads like it is put together by someone who wants to be offended by other people being offended. When you look at the links that is in the list, most of them go back to individual personal blogs, not to legitimate news articles. That said, there are indeed some problematic things in the list that can be addressed/talked about. We can love Christmas and still understand that black face is wrong in any context. They are not mutually exclusive of each other.

    They are great for multitasking, especially when multiple people are watching. No need to pause when someone leaves the room. Typically little or no need to catch someone up when they walk in and the movie is in progress. And if it is late and you are tired, you can just go to bed because you already know how it ends. All that said, I usually enjoy them. And my wife loves them. Bought her a "Hallmark Christmas movie watching sweatshirt" and socks last year as a pre-Christmas gift. She loved it. Her friends loved it. Highly recommend it if your significant other is a Hallmark Christmas movie fan.

    I guess LEON Day and Christmas in July is just too late in the year . . . 6 Reasons January Is the Right Time to Start Planning for Christmas By Max Wong on 8 January 2015 WiseBread To ensure that I always spend the last month of the year relaxing, I start prepping for the holidays in January. I know this sounds crazy, but hear me out. December has always been the big travel month for me. When I was a single lady, celebrating New Year's Eve overseas was my yearly tradition. As a married lady, my husband and I still try and reserve the month of December for vacations. What this means is that I have no time in December to waste on holiday prep. Here's how I get it all done earlier in the year. Source: https://www.wisebread.com/6-reasons-january-is-the-right-time-to-start-planning-for-christmas

    Each month, our Featured Member section profiles a ClausNet member. Members are chosen totally at random by me and the staff. Once selected as Featured Member of the Month, we interview the candidate and post the interview here. This is a wonderful way to get to know your fellow ClausNet members! We are happy to announce our ClausNet Featured Member for June 2020 is Santa MikeE! Santa MikeE Featured ClausNet Member – June 2020 Profile: Santa MikeE Real Name: Mike Location: Cary, North Carolina USA ClausNet member since: December 16, 2016 Community Reputation (as of today): 330 – Awesome! Membership Level: Supporter Website: MrsClausPlusSanta.com We’re a little late getting this month’s interview posted. Just a few things going on lately. Anyway, our June 2020 Featured Member of the Month hails from North Carolina. Santa MikeE first donned the red suit in 2016. And it wasn’t long after that when he found our community. We caught up with Santa Mike a few weeks back and here is what he had to say... ClausNet: How long have you been portraying Santa Claus and how did you get started? Santa MikeE: "I eased into being Santa Claus when my beard started showing more gray than brown. For two years, beginning in 2015, I dressed up with a Christmas theme when attending my company's Christmas party. In 2016, I also dressed up in a borrowed Santa suit at my HOA's holiday event. As bad as that performance was (looking back at it), it had me hooked. I sought out resources, which included ClausNet, as well as the local Santa Claus community. By the Fall of 2017, my Claus attire and my Santa performance skills had improved markedly. I have continued to hone my skills in the years since, and I look forward to my fourth year in the big chair with excitement!" ClausNet: What or who are your influences on your portrayal of Santa Claus? Santa MikeE: "Since I became an adult, Santa Claus was someone who I saw as a character in Christmas movies. Some of these were better than others, of course, but I remember a number as being important definitions of the Santa Claus character. Miracle on 34th Street taught me that Santa is more than just bringing presents. The Santa Clause showed me that anyone could become Santa, and that in becoming Santa, they could become a better person. A number of books describing the "true story of Santa Claus" have also given me ideas of what Santa should be." ClausNet: What do you enjoy most about being Santa Claus? Santa MikeE: "The most fun thing about being Santa Claus is interacting with the children. Being able to sing a song, tell a story, or answer questions, and getting the little ones excited and wanting to interact is the most fun. Perhaps even more enjoyable is getting the little ones, say around 3 years old, to overcome their fear and shyness through interaction. We don't always have the time that it takes to do this in a busy setting, but when we can, it's worth the effort." ClausNet: What do you enjoy the LEAST about being Santa Claus? Santa MikeE: "Dead time. I have had some gigs in a commercial setting where the flow of children was not continuous. Short breaks between visits is fine, and it allows me to take more time with each child. But when there is no traffic for prolonged periods (hours?), it is a waste of Santa's time, and the client's fee." ClausNet: What is your most memorable visit? Santa MikeE: "This last Christmas season, we had a visit to a rural community gathering, held in a converted barn - one of those places that caters to weddings and parties. We had on the order of 50 children in attendance, and when Mrs. Claus and I entered, singing as we came in as we usually do, the entire group of children joined us in song! As we continued through our routine, telling stories and singing songs, the entire group participated as much as they were able. I have never been so delighted by a group of youngsters before, and hope to see more like them in the future." ClausNet: Do you have a favorite gig? Santa MikeE: "About half of my events are home visits, with many of the remainder being community events, either neighborhood gatherings, or organizational parties. Although I enjoy most of them, I must say that the best are the ones that there are enough children to generate the excitement that Santa Claus should engender. Two or three isn't enough. Half a dozen is a bare minimum, and between 15 and 50 is ideal, where you have enough time to interact with each, and the more extroverted children can keep the flow of merriment going while Santa and Mrs. Claus pause to take a breath. Much more than 50 is tough. I've done public events where the attendance was in the hundreds, and there just isn't time to do the children justice." ClausNet: What is your dream gig? Santa MikeE: "One event that we've had for three years running is a large HOA that has us doing seven or eight shows for groups of young ones from the community, That's a fun gig, although the way it is ran doesn't allow as much interaction with the children as I would like. My ideal gig would be something like it, where Mrs. Claus and I got to do a set performance for different groups, with enough time for individual interactions. This would allow us to hone our presentation, while letting us ad-lib as need to fit the group, and really play up being Santa and Mrs. Claus." ClausNet: What keeps you busy when you are not being Santa? Santa MikeE: "I realize that I am still young for a Santa, To keep the lights on during the off season, I work in the IT industry as a Quality Assurance Software Tester. I try to find bugs before they get to customers." ClausNet: What are your hobbies / interests? Santa MikeE: "My big activities outside of work include Toastmasters. Online, in this day of COVID-19 and working in my backyard garden." ClausNet: What is your favorite color? Santa MikeE: "Gold (Yellow), with Green as a close second." ClausNet: What is your favorite food? Santa MikeE: "Besides the stock answers about a See-Food diet, and Santa like's cookies, I have to admit to a fondness for a particular recipe for Parmesan roasted Brussels Sprouts as a side to a chicken or beef dish." ClausNet: Coke or Pepsi? Santa MikeE: "Dr. Pepper, if I have soda at all, which I try to avoid." ClausNet: What is your favorite cookie? Santa MikeE: "The round ones. That aside, I love peanut butter cookies and oatmeal raisin. I don't have any cookies that I really hate, but I've gotten burned out on chocolate chip in its various forms from over use." ClausNet: What is your favorite movie? Santa MikeE: "I've gotten away from movies and TV for the last few years. My favorite movie is Empire Strikes Back of the original Star Wars trilogy." ClausNet: Do you have a favorite Christmas movie? Santa MikeE: "The Santa Clause (the first one) with Tim Allen.’" ClausNet: What is your favorite Christmas song? Santa MikeE: "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town." ClausNet: What was the last book that you read? Santa MikeE: "I mostly read science fiction and have for decades. But in my question to improve my Santa Claus persona, I've read a number of Santa related books. Most recently, I've been re-reading Joe Moore's North Pole Chronicles, and currently have book 1, "Believe Again" sitting on the desk beside me." ClausNet: What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Santa MikeE: "I concluded that my childhood desire to become an astronaut is probably not going to happen. Today, I am considering moving into Podcasting, bringing my various hobbies together to share with others." ClausNet: What profession would you not like to attempt? Santa MikeE: "Sales. Definitely not interested in selling a product (other than my own skills)." ClausNet: What were some of your favorite toys as a child? Santa MikeE: "Lincoln Logs, until I received a bicycle for my birthday!" ClausNet: What is your most memorable experience of Santa while growing up? Santa MikeE: "I remember one visit with Santa when I was five or six years old. It stands out from other visits to Santa at the malls since it was a personal visit at a school playground on a weekend. In retrospect, I suspect it was my Dad filling the part, but at that age, we don't really realize these things. What I remember best is that Santa was talking to me, not to just another youngster in a line of children." ClausNet: What is the hardest question you have gotten as Santa Claus and what was your response? Santa MikeE: "I am fortunately in that I haven't been hit with a request to bring back deceased relatives (yet). However, I have fielded questions regarding sick relatives, as well as requests for little brothers/sisters. My answer to this kind of question is that some things are beyond the powers of Santa Claus, and that the best that I could do was to pray for them." ClausNet: What is the strangest request you have gotten as Santa Claus? Santa MikeE: "I've had children ask for a variety of things for Christmas. One of the most unusual was an ask for a full-size Lamborghini. Obviously, as I told the young man, I wasn't going to be able to fit one of those in the sleigh, so I was afraid I'd not be able to fulfill his request." ClausNet: How did you find ClausNet? Santa MikeE: "Google." ClausNet: And what do you like most about ClausNet? Santa MikeE: "ClausNet provides an open forum to ask questions, and search collected wisdom on a number of topics." ClausNet: Is there a Santa or Mrs. Claus over the years that you admire or has inspired you? Can you tell us a little bit about him/her? Santa MikeE: "Two Santa Clauses in particular have strongly influenced my character as Santa. Ron Campbell, who guided me as I was getting started, and connected me with Lou Shelton, who I still work with today as my Mrs. Claus, and Steve Gillham, who taught me many of the storytelling techniques that I have used successfully. Steve Gillham in particular has motivated me to be a better Santa, since his portrayal of Santa is spot on, with his mannerisms of a wise, if slightly befuddled toy maker make his character more believable." ClausNet: What advice can you give to a first time Santa or Mrs. Claus? Santa MikeE: "Connect with other Santas. Whether this is by joining local organizations of those who portray St. Nick, attending Santa Claus schools when available, or in online venues such as ClausNet, get connected. Exchange ideas. Read books about the subject to see how others think of Santa. Do as many of these things as you can, the better to find your Santa." Thank you Mike! Everyone, please join me in congratulating Santa MikeE, our ClausNet Featured Member of the Month for June 2020!

    6 cases here in South Carolina ... I stopped shaving in 1968, so not shaving ... I'm very concerned about the current pandemic considering my age, as probably some of you here are as well, in the high risk pool, so being in as healthy a condition as I can has become my goal and I pray that everyone here at Claus Net fairs well and we all get through this healthy. This is going to get worse before it gets better and the world is going to need souls like us Jolly Ole Elves in Red Suites this Christmas more than ever ...
