On the Lookout for Fake Santas...Tis the 9th Day of Christmas

As promised in the Scrooge Syndrome post...

Here are a few pointers on how to spot a Fake Santa Claus. 

Don't misunderstand... Fake Santas are nice guys, but wouldn't you like to recognize The Real Deal when you see him? 

The Real Santa is not Skinny.

His boots and belt are always made of black leather...
no shiny rubber or black vinyl on Santa!

Santa Claus has a real beard on his chin
that really is as white as the snow. 
You can always give it a little tug just to be to be sure.

Santa's cheeks are a bit like roses 
and his nose really does resemble a cherry,
but naturally so, not from a jar of make-up.

The Real Santa wears a red wool suit trimmed in white fur 
made especially by the elves. 
There is no polyester anywhere... not even in his long-johns.

Santa's eyes really do twinkle and when he looks into yours, 
he can tell, without even asking,
if you're on the naughty list.

He has a voice so deep and calm 
 that it sends a warm feelin' all over you 
and instantly you know... 

He's The Real Deal.

And oh... how you want to be on that good list!

  1. Very sweet Meredehuit! Merry Christmas to you and yours! Happy Winter Solstice too.

  2. Good observstion on the Clause's, I will have to keep your points handy when I am out and about this season. Have a great holiday season, if I don't see you again this year.

  3. BTW the real Santa lives in St. George, UT during the off months and is a counselor at Dixie Middle School. He drives a small red car with a license plate that says "THE SLED". Whenever he laughs the merry sound echoes throughout the halls and his true identity is revealed. He knows all the answers to the very difficult questions like "how do reindeer fly" and his beard is as white and real as you would expect it to be. Yep, I saw him through the bamboo slats of the door to the front room when I was about eight years old and I've been a believer ever since. My children don't hear that bell anymore but I still do. Maybe I'm just getting old. :-) Ho Ho Ho!

  4. haha, We saw a real looking Santa driving a Honda the other day. I had to do a double take.
