In an interview you will see only on Lincoln City Homepage, I sat down for a chat with the Jolly Old Elf, Santa Claus and Mrs. Santa Claus.
Homepage: So Santa and Mrs Claus, how are you two doing?
Santa: “Ho, ho, ho! We are doing very well! Thank you for asking. Here, have a candy cane.”
Homepage: Thank you Santa. My first question has to be, how did you fare during the covid drama?
Santa: Ho, ho, ho! Well, it was a little more difficult to get around and we had a few fewer stops so the reindeer put on a little extra weight, but I think we are all ready for a full strength Christmas Eve workout!
Mrs. Claus: (Whispering) “It will be nice to get him out of the house.”
Homepage: “Santa, with so many manufacturers having their supply chains disrupted, how are you and the elves keeping up with demand?”
Santa: ” Ho, ho, ho! What a great question and so thoughtful of you to ask! Because we rely almost exclusively on magic to produce our toys, there have been no shortages at the North Pole-so long as the children believe in us.”
Homepage: “That leads me to my next question Santa, do children still believe?”
Santa: “Ho, ho, ho! Well yes they do! Some come and some go, but the Spirit of Christmas never completely fades away.”
Homepage: “Santa, what is the number one request you have received this year?”
Santa: “Ho, ho, ho! It makes my heart so glad when I hear so many children and grown ups alike asking for world peace. I, of course, tell them that I want the same, but I’m not in charge of that. Then the kids usually ask for a phone or video game console.”
Homepage: “Are you able to keep up with the demand for electronics?”
Santa: “Ho, ho, ho! Well, of course! 95% of electronics is magic anyway but in the off season I send the elves to California for some intensive programming training and we’re good to go!”
Homepage: “Speaking of electronics, Santa, have you made any upgrades to the sleigh?”
Santa: “Ho, ho, ho! Why yes I have! I just added a new GPS and dash cam (you’d be surprised by how many people claim that Santa damaged their roofs). And for Mrs. Clause, I had the elves install heated reins and seats.
Homepage: Well, Santa and Mrs. Claus thank you so much for taking the time out of your visit to Lincoln City to talk with us. One last question, if I may; where do you vacation after Christmas? Where does Santa Claus go to relax?”
Santa; “Ho, ho, ho! Florida. We have a vacation house near Boca Raton. Six weeks of sunshine and relaxing with friends. We play a lot of cards and walk on the beach.”
Homepage: “Thank you Santa, thank you Mrs. Claus.
Santa: “Thank you and merry Christmas to all!”
