The Santa Claus Oath
I have signed and support the guidelines spelled out by the Santa Claus Oath. I believe portraying Santa Claus requires a higher level of commitment to being a generally Good Person. Remembering the oath assists me every time I take on the role of Santa Claus.
I will seek knowledge to be well versed in the mysteries of bringing Christmas
cheer and good will to all the people that I encounter in my journeys and travels.
I shall be dedicated to hearing the secret dreams of both children and adults.
I understand that the true and only gift I can give, as Santa, is myself.
I acknowledge that some of the requests I will hear will be difficult and sad.
I know in these difficulties there lies an opportunity to bring a spirit of
warmth, understanding and compassion.
I know the “real reason for the season” and know that I am blessed to be able
to be a part of it.
I realize that I belong to a brotherhood and will be supportive, honest and
show fellowship to my peers.
I promise to use “my” powers to create happiness, spread love and make
fantasies come to life in the true and sincere tradition of the Santa Claus Legend.
I pledge myself to these principles as a descendant of St. Nicholas the gift giver of Myra.
