The Santa Clause Oath 

Pictures with Santa

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.
