25,000 hits! AND The Santa Oath!
You guys ROCK! I started this website/blog in September to promote my first official season being Santa. I have had so much encouragement and fun being Santa this past Christmas and I hope to do it for the rest of my life. Thank you so much for all that you guys have done to make this rookie look and feel like a professional last year. I would be nowhere without your support! I only had 3 gigs this season but I had a blast at all 3 and have had good feedback from them, so hopefully, this year we will be even more successful! The Adventures of a Rookie Santa has a facebook page too! Feel free to go there and like the page! Also if you are on stumble upon, pintrest, or anywhere else, please feel free to share this site with them!
Did you know there is a Santa Oath? Now ya do, and here it is!
I will seek knowledge to be well versed in the mysteries of bringing Christmas cheer and good will to all the people that I encounter in my journeys and travels.
I shall be dedicated to hearing the secret dreams of both children and adults.
I understand that the true and only gift I can give, as Santa, is myself.
I acknowledge that some of the requests I will hear will be difficult and sad. I know in these difficulties there lies an opportunity to bring a spirit of warmth, understanding and compassion.
I know the “real reason for the season” and know that I am blessed to be able to be a part of it.
I realize that I belong to a brotherhood and will be supportive, honest and show fellowship to my peers.
I promise to use “my” powers to create happiness, spread love and make fantasies come to life in the true and sincere tradition of the Santa Claus Legend.
I pledge myself to these principles as a descendant of St. Nicholas the gift giver of Myra.
