About Santa

My story and I'm stickin to it...

When my older brother became Santa, I was very proud of him and thought that someday I'd like to join the ranks of Santa  And with his passing, in 2014, I was duly inspired to carry on.  His  inspiration became a voice in my head whispering, "put on the Suit".  Two years later, I finally  went to a Santa school, put on the 'Suit' and took over where he left off.  At my first training school, the C.W. Howard Santa Claus School, I discovered hundreds of Santa cousins that I didn't know I had and I keep finding more !  They are with The Hoosier Santas, Fraternal Order of Real Bearded Santas, the 3 Rivers Santas, The Santa Claus Conservatory and in the Secret Sleigh Project, and even right here in Ft Wayne, Indiana.  I found them in the Mall, restaurants and even at the Ft Wayne Historical Train Society.  Once I donned the Suit, I learned what my brother knew: Santa is in the heart.  Those chosen are forever changed. Wherever Santa and his cousins meet, new and wonderful ways to delight children and adults are shared.  Make no mistake, it was destiny....
