Santa John

pics060I have been volunteering being Santa for The Childbirth Connection for the past three years. Each year has been very interesting and fulfilling for me. I remember the first year I was a bit nervous. Randi the director of the foundation was encouraging me to say the traditional HO! HO! HO! Merry Christmas greeting which I have to admit I was a bit intimidated and shy about it but eventually as the kids cheered for Santa I felt better and more at ease. The second and third year were much better, still a bit shy but much more comfortable. Overall, I’ve enjoyed all three years seeing the kids’ happiness: their smiles, their tears and excitement. The joy that brings the parents when they see their children jump for joy when they see Santa is priceless. Its very rewarding and I’m happy that I’ve been able to have the opportunity of making the parents and their children happy. Looking forward to the next year…
