It didn't start off perfectly. "I really didn't like the 'ho ho ho!' laugh when I met him in high school... But somehow, it grew on me," said newly published author and Santa's wife, Julia Reinfort-Claus.
"That first year was... interesting. And as difficult and exhausting some parts of it were, I really think it was the best year of my life."
There had never been a "Santa Claus" when her husband was hired for the job. Neither one of them understood the responsibilities of the job. After meeting "The Boss" just once (he didn't have a name, and they never saw him again), they were left to their own devices to figure out the job. "Well, the elves were pretty amazing at helping us figure things out... but apart from that, we were completely on our own," said Reinfort-Claus.
Some of the highlights of Mrs. Claus' story include a phone call she will never forget. "He basically proposed by phone. Things were moving so fast with the new job, he panicked, called and asked for my hand in marriage before rushing to my place to do it more formally," said Reinfort-Claus. "But the weirdest thing was... I had never given him my address! He had it on 'the list.'"
You will feel the love between these two people who, together, have a very demanding but simple job: making children of the world happy.
Her conversational tone and interesting behind-the-scenes stories about that period in her life so many years ago, will entertain children of all ages.
