Hello My Name is: Santa Claus (St. Nick)

Author:  | Photographer: Mark Staff Photography

Ho, Ho, Ho! My name is St. Nicholas, but my friends call me Santa Claus. You may have seen me at the Mall or flying over your house with my reindeer. I grew up in the boring/**exciting** town of The North Pole.

When I was five, my hero was Rudolph, but now the person I most admire is Buddy the Elf.

It’s been too many years to count since I first flew over Hilton Head Island and Bluffton in my sleigh, and to me, the biggest change is there are so many more children to deliver toys to now.

If someone were to ask me for advice about making toys, I would tell them ask the elves – they are the professionals! My line of work is delivering toys on Christmas Eve and I chose this profession because I love seeing children smile.

If I were mayor of HHI/Bluffton, my first order of business would be to make it snow more often.

My favorite time of the year in HHI/**Bluffton**, is Christmas Eve because I get to see y’all again!

In closing, when you turn the page, I hope you remember always be nice, but definitely not to be naughty – because I’m watching ALL YEAR LONG!
