My Brother is Santa Claus

Santa’s Updated 2012 look

In the past I divulged the secret of my sister in “My Sister is a Clown,” well now I have another confession. My brother is Santa Claus. Shhhhh, don’t tell the kids. Of course being Santa and all, his wife is the famous Mrs. Claus.

Santa and Mrs. Claus

He already has to disguise himself in the off season.

Santa in disguise.

But that does not stop the kids from recognizing him. A couple of years ago a young tot thought she was so special when Santa came to her house for Christmas Eve dinner. That was with no prompting from adults. He did not even have his red suit on, but donned shorts and a Hawaiian shirt. She kept saying “Look at me Santa!” and “Santa watch this!” When asked the next day, who had come to her house for dinner she cutely replied with a sweet innocent smile, “Santa!”

Some of the year he hides at the Renaissance Faire

All in all I have quite the family. Sonshine the Clown, Santa Clause and the Seamstress who make the Emperor’s new cloths. What? I didn’t tell you about the seamstress? Well, I have to keep some secrets.

Today I am thankful for my brother, Santa Claus and his wife, Mrs. Claus.

  1. That is great! No fooling the kids – they know Santa when they see him.

  2. So pleased to see he keeps himself busy in the summer!

  3. Tell Santa Claus we love him!!! And to be safe in his travels please. 🙂

  4. Your brother & sis-in-law make a fine Mrs. & Mrs. Claus. He’s got that twinkle in his eye–mandatory, for a true Santa & the true Holiday spirit.

    • Ahhh yes and when he is working the crowd he has a halo!

  5. What a great Santa and Mrs. Claus. What a fun family you have Nancy. I really enjoyed this post, made me smile. Hugs

    • My brother makes me smile when he is dressed this way! Thanks!

  6. I’m sure he is. And I bet he is great!

  7. He looks just like the Santa Claus I met! LOL He really does look like a natural…although he doesn’t look like Tim Allen or Vince Vaughn. 🙂

    • No neither of them but he sure is jolly! lol

  8. I’ve been wondering where he’s been hiding. Does this mean you get the relative’s discount?

    • Only if I am good! If I am bad I just get nothing but coal! lol

  9. I am happy to see Santa taking some down time with the missus and enjoying a summer festival.

    • Yes after that busy “night” they do need some rest! lol

  10. 🙂 Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas!

  11. I remember when you first introduced your brother–Santa–and I had to pop in to see his photo again. He appears to be such an outgoing and charming man! Between a clown and Santa you have a very rich tapestry of family, Nancy! Fun, too!

  12. LOVED that! Very cool!
