what do you like to see in your Santas?

I’ve committed to playing Santa in public this saturday and I need some advice. I’ve never been Santa before and I don’t want to ruin anyone’s Christmas by doing a bad job of it.

What have you liked about “mall Santas” (although I won’t be in a mall; it’s a small bakery) and what have you really not liked about them?

I’m a bit extra nervous because I’m only 21 years old, and though I’ve been a performer all my life I’m not completely sure how to best portray an old man.

Look like you are enjoying yourself. If you are having fun, others will smile with (or at) you :slight_smile:

Huh. I never thought of Santa as an old man, in spite of the white hair and beard. More like a big uncle, or a friendly school principal.
