Santas Attend School To Become More Jolly 10-07-2010

A degree from Santa School? Yes it's true.
The Charles W. Howard Santa Claus School in Midland is the oldest and longest running school dedicated to the art of portraying Santa Claus. And classes are now underway through Sunday.
Officials said the mission of the internationally recognized Santa School is to uphold the traditions and preserve the history of Santa Claus.
The school is often described as the "Harvard" of Santa Schools, and its graduates earn their red suspenders and keys to the barn during a 40-hour curriculum.
Santa lessons include Santa facts and legends; radio and television interviews; proper use of stomach muscles to say "Ho-ho-ho"; health and fitness including a workout; resumes, marketing & presentation 101.
The Santa Claus School has had graduates from Canada, Germany, Ireland, England, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Greenland, South Africa, and Switzerland as well as the United States.
This year's graduation ceremony will be held at the Midland Country Club.
