Greetings, boys and girls! Santa here, hoping that Christmas 2017 has been as magical an experience for you as it's certainly been for me! (Ho-ho-ho!)
Once more, Radio City Music Hall has two Santas in Residence alongside the Rockettes: Santa Howard Graham poses with the folks outside the Music Hall's main lobby, while, on stage, ol' Charles Edward Hall brings back everyone's favorites, among them, Rockette Rag-dolls! (And don't forget to read Charles' bio, Santa Claus is for Real!) Meanwhile, at the Hollywood Christmas Parade, ol' Tim Connaghan celebrated the spirit of the season as only he could, whilst I got busy networking with my team in Colorado Springs! As usual, the NORAD Santa Squad stood by, and was on constant alert all night long! (Ho-ho-ho!)
Charles and Tim are, as you know, inductees of the International Santa Claus Hall of Fame! They've already announced the Class of 2016, so I hope you can witness next year's inductions!
And of course, I started my Christmas morning with the Disney Parks Christmas Morning Parade, and took some time off for New Year's, so that our friends in Pasadena's Tournament of Roses could do their usual thing. And come July, it's back to Bakken in Denmark for the 2018 World Santa Claus Congress and Gathering of the Danish Santa Claus Guild!
As ever, there's lots and lots of news and information bursting out of my Kringleverse, as it were --- and only one Mortal has ALL the guts, ALL the energy and ALL the chutzpah to share all my holiday odysseys with each and every one of you. So thanks for visiting Richard Washington's KringleQuest.com, Fourth Edition!
Only Richard and his team of Elf supporters have what it takes to track down the best breaking news items, locate the most important information, and share with you the most updated and/or totally revised links! And as always, the centerpiece of this website --- our jewel in the crown, if you will --- is the one motion picture that started it all: Santa Claus: The Movie.
So, boys and girls, please continue to join me and Richard, as the famous "Elf Without Jingles" tackles the Santa stories and adventures YOU want to discover! Richard's a hard-workin' Elf, I'm sure, but he certainly knows his way around the Season to be Jolly --- and that's why he put this website here in the first place! Do join us!
Ho-ho-ho! Merry Christmas to all!
