Throughout the years, Santa and Mrs. Claus’ gather with different conventions around the country to talk about how to be a better mall Santa, magic tricks, and more. Like all groups, Santas often have a difference of opinion on who is naughty and nice. While I’m not sure exactly what happened, Clausnet makes reference to the “turmoil of 2010 after Celebrate Santa”.
This year everyone seemed in great spirits. It was a couple days before St. Patrick’s Day, but today everyone was in red. Santas chatted jovially about different traditions and sniped privately about the Santas who didn’t have real bears. They marched down the main street in Gatlinburg and brought the magic of Christmas early.
