First, in costumes (not thinking) we went to Walmart for camera batteries and lots of those tiny candy canes! We ended up appoliging to some mothers cause all the children ran to Santa-- so he went ahead and played the part and passed out candy canes!.(unplanned but secretly fun!!!) Then we exited as quick as we could and went to the party.
There was a terrific restaurant and private club that put on a HUGE Halloween party/dance (adult couples and singles). The place was packed even in the balcony. You can Imagine when Santa entered the room, every one was "thrilled". The waiter had drinks at our table "Before" we were seated, "So where did these come from?" he pointed up in the balcony, that man wants to buy Santa and his helper a drink! That happened ALL night so we shared the drinks with whom ever came by our table. All the ladies wanted to dance with Santa and that was Ok! all the men then decided to dance with Santa's helper. ( we knew the majority of these people anyway) It was all in fun! Every body was having a terrific time!
Time for the band to go on break! Now EVERYONE was in costumes and they were all Good Ones. A couple of ladies came up to our table and wanted to sit on Santa's knee and tell him what they wanted for Chrismas! He scooted out his chair ( and I stood beside him) and they proceeded to tell him, "I want a Royals Royce" ,next lady "I want a fur coat"' etc.... So he reached in his sack and gave each lady a perfume sample. She was so thrilled she announced it to the crowd , "Oh look what Santa gave me".........Oh then here came a big line..so funny, everyone laughing! He "Really" played the part so well !
A man was in line with his wife and stood before Santa. A little stunned, Santa says, "and what can I bring you my good man for Christmas?" ... a pause and then the man pointed at me and said (in fun) , "I want her" -----Santa and I looked at each other , then then pulled out a chair for me next to him........you guessed it all the men then lined up in front of my chair and I passed out those tiny candy canes.
The band got a LONG break, the resturant was happy, every one had a big laugh and a great time. Santa lead the parade for the costume contest as we all marched around the room. Of course we won the couples contest, and lots of prizes were awarded in different categories. Additionally, the restaurant gave us 2 free tickets for steak dinners for pulling off ( and actually quite by accident) the last minute stunt of the Season!
( this IS a True story!!!)
