Roseville Fire Dept and Toys are US

One day, just before Christmas, we were at Toys R Us, while loading presents in the Jeep a lady approached and asked for a photo with Santa, I NEVER refuse a photo. After the photo I gave her my card, told her about my public calendar on FB and said Merry Christmas.

I received this in my e-mail;

Dear Santa,

I just wanted to thank you for taking time from your busy schedule yesterday as you loaded up toys at Toys R Us. See, I believe there are no chance meetings. . . Yesterday was a very heart breaking, sad day for me. Until I saw Santa! Joy filled my heart and made my day! I shared the selfie we took together with my grandchildren, my granddaughter Lilli, 9 yrs said “wow it really is Santa!” I just want you to know that seeing Santa in the community at Christmas time really does bring a smile and make a person happy. Thank you again Santa Claus. Merry Christmas to you and your family. 

Ps. Please Give my thanks to Mrs. Claus

People are truly awesome.

I was hired to do a 20 minutes bus ride from one stop to another for a group of seniors going to a mystery dinner. It would be on 2 days, Sat and Sunday. I boarded the bus in my suit and told them how Santa came to be, told them about St. Nicolas and then posed for pictures. I had a 94 year old lady sit in my lap for pictures. God Bless her, can you imagine the things she has seen in her lifetime?

The next day I repeated the same trip. The only difference was, one of the older women actually pinched my butt.

So, I was hired to be Santa for the Roseville Fire Dept. What made it really come home was that the fireman who hired me was the cousin of Walt Kubas, a great guy that I used to work with at San Jose BNE. I was to come in on the hook and ladder truck and depart on the same. Markus was my elf and got to ride in the cab that controls the ladder. There were maybe 30 children there. It was a great day and special because I got to meet some of Walt’s family. Walt had passed away a few years before.
