Granted I look like the Jolly Old Elf all year long, but mentally I become Santa in the fall. For years I’ve answered to “Santa” from just about anyone I encounter, but there is something special about those last three months of the year.
A few weeks ago the Long Beach Press Telegram reporter Karen Meeks interviewed me about my world as Santa. Here is the link to the article.
