What if I Interviewed Santa Claus?

12/9/2013 Writing challenge. What if you could have a conversation with Santa?

I received a remarkable opportunity today to interview one of the most amazing figures in Christmas history today.  The legendary Santa Claus agreed to sit down with me and have a wonderful heart-to-heart.  He is quite an amazing man!

Me:  So, Santa, you have been a legendary figure since around the 4th century.  What’s it like being so famous?

Santa:  Well, it wasn’t so bad at first.  I was still able to leave my house in the North Pole occasionally to enjoy a night out with the missus without being accosted by the media and such.  But now, with cameras, movies, television and video, it is impossible for us to enjoy a night out without being accosted by the paparazzi.  It gets a little tedious at times.

Me:  I’m sorry to hear that.  That must be very frustrating for you.  Tell me about your beard.  Do you ever shave it off?

Santa:  No, the missus helps me keep it nice and trimmed year-long.  It’s very cold in the North Pole, so it’s a bit of a necessity in order to keep warm.

Me:  What does Mrs. Claus think of your job?

Santa:  I don’t think she quite knew what she was getting into when I first asked her to marry me, but she enjoys baking and cooking for the elves and me.  She even makes these special carrot treats for all the reindeer.  She is a remarkable woman to say the least.

Me:  I would say so.  Will you tell us how the reindeer fly?

Santa:  Ho, ho, ho!  It’s magic, of course!

Me:  Of course.  Well, it’s been wonderful interviewing you.  Thank you so much for taking the time to talk with me.  Is there anything else you would like to say before we conclude our conversation?

Santa:  Yes, remember that you must be good all the time in order to receive a visit from me.  And not just when you think someone is watching you.  It’s more important to be good when you think you are unseen.  That is the true mark of a good spirit.

Me:  Thank you, Santa.  I will definitely keep that in mind, as I am certain all of my readers will do as well.  Merry Christmas!

Santa:  Merry Christmas, Angela!
