It's Beginning To Look Not Like Christmas

Santa MikeE

Viewed: 696 times

The post Christmas enthusiasm is beginning to wear off, and it's getting more and more difficult to muster the Christmas Spirit as we move into Spring and Summer.  Yes, I am moving forward with preparations for the next season, but I find that much of what I have to do is wait for the next thing.

One thing that I just completed is Ed Taylor's Santa Claus Conservatory classes.  Not having worked as a paid Santa Claus before, I have to admit that there was a whole lot of useful information there.  I'm just not sure that I was able to absorb it all, since I don't have any real personal experience to compare it to.  Well, that's what I'll be getting during this next year, hopefully.  I fully expect to get a fair number of gigs from other Santa's in the area who are overbooked (or so they tell me at the local IBRBS meetings).  Next year, I can repeat the classes, and perhaps attend one of the Santa Schools, depending on their schedule and mine, since I am still a working stiff.

As I mentioned, I do attend the local IBRBS meetings.  Next one is Wednesday at lunch, which isn't terribly convenient, but I fell that it is worth attending, even though it's just a planning meeting.  I also attend a story telling class offered by Steve Gillham, which will be tomorrow after work.  I don't expect to become a Super Santa in only a year or two because of these groups, but I do hope that these associations will allow me to become a better Santa than I would otherwise.
