Christmas means something different to all of us. For some of us it brings a time to be close with friends and family. To gather at a common ground and share stories of the past. To welcome an addition to the clan with snapshots for the future. Some people enjoy putting up lights around the eaves of their houses and prepare for the dinner of all dinners. While others are bursting at the seams with anticipation to tear open whatever wrapped squares are under the tree. To be honest, i love all of it, and more.
For one unlucky fella, Christmas includes headaches and ulcers. That’s right. Santa Claus. We managed to catch up with the mythical man of mystery a couple of days before the big event to talk about the Elves, his reindeer, and Mrs. Claus. Most importantly we delve into the toll it as taken on his mind and body to strap in to that sleigh every year to deliver joy and happiness to the world.
It turns out that there has been some friction up in the North Pole. As of recent years jolly ole Saint Nick has felt a little resentful. From a dissolved relationship with Rudolph to broken sleigh after broken sleigh Santa is feeling frustrated. Not to mention having to read every insane letter from every insane child in the world. It changes a person. But Doug was able to really corral this bowl of jelly for what I think is one of the best interviews thus far.
