Pete as Santa Claus
Serving as a natural beard Santa for the past 25 years, primarily as a mall Santa, I have experienced emotions from joy to heartbreak.
My knee has been the meeting place of "young lives" ages three days to 98 years. It has often been the source of mutual inspiration. These moments of sharing have provided the fodder for stories both funny and sad, or hopeful and hopeless, but always supported by Santa's love of people of all ages and the true meaning of the Season.
