santahat My second Bachelors degree in Santa Claus!

Today I received my second Bachelors degree in Santa Claus. I received my first Bachelors of Santa Claus in 2005 from the Charles W, Howard Santa Claus School in Midland, MI.

Today, I graduated from the International University of Santa Claus (IUSC).

The class was held in Providence, RI by Santa Tim Connaghan.

Santa Tim Connaghan – Santa Hollywood

The class covered several topics including:

The History of Santa Claus The Basics of being Santa
- Making the visit memorable
- Positive Guest Service
- Santa's Arrival
- Welcoming the Children
- Seating the Child or Children
- Special Techniques for photographing babies
- Hands in the Photo
- Training your Helpers
- Handling problems
- Inconsiderate Parents
- The Do's and Don'ts of being a Santa.

Talking with Children
- Asking, Listening & Answering
- How to ask the right questions
- How to answer children's questions
- Answering Difficult Questions
- Answering those who don't believe in Christmas.

Working for a Mall or Photo Company
- Efficiency, It's a team effort
- The first 15 seconds
- Handling problems
- Working with Pets.

The Special Event Santa
- Who's in charge
- Making the Grand Entrance
- Handling large Crowds, Working with the Media

The Entertaining Santa
- Add Storytelling, Singing, Magic, Balloon Art, etc. to your resume.

The Image of Santa
- Your Image as Santa
- What children, parents and others see and think of you
- Grooming and Appearance
- Santa's Magic Suit
- Marketing yourself

What Qualities do Great Santa's Possess
- A Santa of Character
- Be Prepared
- Be Organized

The class was a lot of fun and I got to meet up with several Santas from the New England area!

This October I am headed back to the CWH Santa Claus School for my Masters in Santa Claus. This year will be the 70th anniversary of the school and I am looking forward to meeting up with some old friends!

Thats really neat! I never knew there was so much involved in the process for the jolly ol elf I see there is much to learn to get it down right to be the perfect Santa for children.
