|Remember when you took your children to see Santa? If your child was old enough, you stood back in the wings smiling as you watched the two of them engage in quiet conversation. Speaking as a seasoned Santa, I can tell you that the conversation included a lot more than requests for gifts.|
It has been my honor to accept thousands of children of all ages into my Santa Claus realm. Some of their questions and comments reminded me of the old Art Linkletter show, “Kids Say the Darndest Things.” Often children caught me off guard, and I had to improvise and think quickly before responding.
When you read my book, “Diary of a Mall Santa,” you will be entertained from beginning to end. The book is a collection of 113 stories, and some of the more unusual ones are encounters with adults. The stories run the gamut: comical, tender, heartwarming, and slightly irreverent. A few stories are heartbreaking, and those stories touched my heart.
