                      So, who is this Santa Rodger person?

                                                I am Rodger Tripp. Happily Married for 48 years.                                                                                              We have three children, one grandchild and two cats.

                                                     We have lived in Tallahassee for 44 years.

                                           I graduated from Florida State University with Degrees:

                                                       Child Development and Family Relations

                                                                    Early Childhood Education
                                                                             Music Education

          I taught preschool and was a preschool director for 13 years. The last 32 years I have been                                      Educationally Entertaining in preschools and entertaining in assisted living                                                                                           and memory care facilities.

        As "Santa" I will always be in character. I will continue to educate myself in the 
traditions of                    Christmas, so I can bring Christmas cheer and love to all people I meet in my journeys and                      travels. I will open my heart to listen to the secret dreams of both children and adults. I will

        never promise a gift to a child as I know the only gift I can give, as "Santa," is me. I will                              always do my best to pass on the love and joy of the Christmas, Holiday season. I will always                    fulfill the wishes of children and adults as to their dreams, wishes, and beliefs about

                                                                     "Santa" and Christmas.

          Today, Children see "Santa" everywhere. "How can he be in so many places at one time?"


                     Many parents tell their children, "From early November up until Christmas Eve

                                                                "Santa" needs lots of helpers."

                                                                     Are you the real "Santa?"

           This is a question all "Santas" hear. I answer in many different ways. Such as, "I looked

           real this morning when I saw myself in the mirror brushing my teeth." I also tell

           them the "Real Santa" will not tell you he is the "Real Santa," you have to decide.

                                                                 "Yeah, but... how will I know?"
                                      You will know the "Real Santa" by the feelings in your heart.


                                                After All....."Santa" lives in the Hearts of Many.


                                   Ho Ho Hooooo...On Dasher, on Dancer, On Prancer and Vixen,
