From Mike: For the past 3 years, I have been dressing up as Santa Claus for Christmas. My wife and I have an annual Pre-Christmas Christmas party and Santa Claus always showed up to eat the snacks and help drink the beer.
This past Christmas was the best for Santa yet. With many of my friends and family members now having kids, I actually played Santa for people that thought I was really him. I went out and rented the suit for a weekend (I contemplating making an investment and buying my own nice one, glad I didn’t).
It was great. This year, I played Santa for 3 different families of kids. I was walking out of my door in full gear, when the 5-year-old neighbor spotted me. He said ‘mom, look it’s Santa’, so I let out a big Merry Christmas and a few ho, ho’s and it was into the VW Passat Sleigh to spread some Christmas cheer.
I know it’s only March but I am wondering how real I will look in my Santa suit with pillows for my belly.
