    I had a similar issue with the Grand Illumination in Bristol, RI. Some guy showed up 2 years ago doing the same thing. Long story short, I met with the chief of police and the mayor. The police now escort any and all fake Santas off the premises during the hours of the event. This may sound harsh, but there are deeper implications here than just some $#@! crashing your gig. Namely liability issues. This seems to be happening to Santas more and more lately and is one of my biggest pet peeves in the Santa community. Not sure what it is other than ego or just plain stupidity, but for some reason these guys think it is perfectly okay to crash another Santa's event. They show up and work the crowd passing out business cards and candy canes. Meanwhile, you are doing your best to stay in character and entertain, while in the corner of your eye you can see fake Santa working the crowd. Luckily for me, I have a really good relationship with most of the police officers in my town. They love going after impersonators. I cannot stress enough how wrong this is. It is low, unprofessional, rude, and just plan ignorant. If you are planning doing this or think it is a good way to promote yourself, please consider your fellow brothers and sisters in red.

    I always have a maintenance kit with me. It includes: adhesive, brushes, toupee tape, lip balm, extra car fob, cell phone, cash, protein bar, bottle of water, Aspirin, setting powder, tic tacs, business cards, and an extra moustache. For my vehicle, I carry a stander winter emergency kit and a pair of 5XL Cover-Alls.

    For the past 12 Christmas Eves, we have answered the wishes of children staying at the Salvation Army Children's Shelter in Kansas City. Every year before we enter the Shelter, I thank everyone for their hard work and contributions to The Mission. This was Christmas Eve 2018.

    Just before Christmas, Santa was asked to deliver a very special gift.

    Duct tape - never leave home without it! It can mend a failing boot, close up a torn seam from the inside, patch a hole in a toy bag... quick temporary fix for lots of emergencies.

    Here is the best advice anyone could receive. And it is the definitive answer to your question. If there is something you need for your task, make sure you have at least 2 of them.

    Wet wipes, chapstick, clothes brush, mints, little bottle of spirit gum for touch ups, a little bit of makeup for the cheeks, and floss (if I should have a snack), extra socks, boots, and complete outfit, usual winter emergency gear needed in South Dakota, charging cord for cellphone, extra toybag, and extra giveaway goodies. Yes, I pack like I am going to war...

    this leaves an awful lot of questions - how fast was this guy going that he crashed an armored personnel carrier ??? all it takes to shut down a NATO detachment is a couple of stray reindeer ??? according to the article they are hit and killed all the time - kinda makes you wonder what details are left out, or what else happened that this was a convenient excuse . . . sorry - my skepticism of the media is showing again . . .

    I made a similar post last week "Santa's Emergency Kit"... I THINK you are referring to something similar? Touch up makeup, tylenol, a snack, extra gloves, safety pins, bobby pins, etc?

    came across this discussion of history involving traditions, lore, media and marketing - part history and part social science - it is interesting how they interpret the legend in terms of what was popular at the time and some of the ethnic histories that evolved to create the image we have today . . . 10 DECEMBER, 2017 - 13:56 JIM WILLIS Santa the Shaman Comes to the New World: The Shapeshifting Magic-Man from the Ancient Past In 1626, a ship filled with folks from the Netherlands put into what would later be called New York Harbor and went about building a Dutch colony called New Amsterdam. The figurehead on the prow of their ship was none other than the patron saint of sailors, Saint Nicholas. The Dutch called him "Sinter Claes." Thus, "Santa Claus" came to the new world. Saint Nicholas ( Public Domain ) But he almost disappeared as quickly as he settled in. He remained a part of American holiday traditions for only thirty-eight years. Then the new colony was ceded to England, changed its name to New York, and became inundated with an English population who knew nothing of "Sinter Claes" and despised what they considered to be pagan traditions surrounding the winter solstice. Raising Santa From the Dead It took more than a hundred and fifty years to raise the figure of Santa Claus from the dead here in America, and it required a historian, a poet, a cartoonist, and a marketing department to do it. To greatly simplify a convoluted story, it happened like this: (to read the whole article see link below...)

    I had it happen last season at a charity Hockey Game where Saanta was to arrive greet the teams ,drop the puck, Some guy showed up in a party store outfit and tried to work his way into the crowd and was stoped prior to getting to the ice. I got many questions from the smaller children who was the other Santa.Just unacceptable,
