Default Santa

Well I am not really Santa, yet I am often called Santa , even in the street. But I do act as St Nicholas each year in Cincinnati on December 6th and give out presents to the children. This is such a blessing and delight. I have not shaved for three years now to maintain my image! People in my church call me Santa because I always seem to be giving them unexpected things. What a really great guy Santa must be! What do you mean you don't believe in Santa? From my experience, everyone believes in Santa, even the Hoodies. I can't begin to tell you what a joy it is to be taken for the real Santa. The Staff on Continental Airways and the Immigration staff at USA Immigration who told me that I didn't need to remove my glasses for the security photo.

I'm honoured to have "Santa" here. It's great to hear that there is the giving spirit out there. Thanks

Default Santa or in this case St Nicholas

Two photos are from 2009 and two from 2010. 2008 photos are somewhere, but the beard was much shorter!

Default St Nicholas

This year we had to more to Kentucky, but the children were just the same. However, an added blessing, I got to hold three new born babies for photos. They were so lovely, it was hard to hand them back. Don't be thinking anything funny, I already have six children and ten grandchildren, so far.

Etienne,

You really do make a great St. Nicholas and it's wonderful that you can step into his place for a few hours a year so that some magic stays alive.

I'm sure that even St. Nicholas trimmed his beard once in a while.

I'm not surprised you're so often mistaken as Santa and thank you for the photos.

Thanks for sharing the pictures. I know you are Santa...there is no other explanation.
