Unblocking beliefs clears the way to accomplishment with Mary Sise

"Had to the in my childhood. Especially that had this lynch that things would work out and she had faith in me. She really had phased that. I could do anything that i would listen to me. Even with all those kids she just did. She really empowered me to be the best that i could be example of a time when you were maybe thinking about doing something in a particular direction and her faith in you helped motivate or inspire you to take some extra steps. Well i would think around the time when i was going to college. I went to college in the early seventies very early seventies and lot of times women were going to college. You know they were getting married or it was just just changing at the time but she believed in me and we had all these kids in how it was ever going to happen i do. I didn't even know. But she really encouraged me like dow was going to be in so it just had to the next level step to the next level and even though she was very very traditional like she was very traditional in the woman's role it. I always felt like she didn't hold that for me like she really thought i could do whatever i put my mind to do kennedy example of that something that she wouldn't do herself but chink urged you to do because she believed that you had more opportunities more talent abilities ma. I can remember being a little kid and growing up like with the men really ran the place you know. The men in the household ran everything. She really never. I would say you'd never hear her really stand up to my father. He was one of those guys came back from the war. He he really. Hey what he said go. But she could navigate with a navigator. I watched that. And i thought i'm never going to be like You know i'm gonna make a make my money. I'm going do my own thing. I in so i think subliminally she just kept pushing me in that direction without really saying that. She knew as many of the women in her. You know that time. We're in the fifties here. She knew that was the way to do what came to do so it was an interesting. I admired her greatly. Her love or compassion. But i was not going to be that in that role with you know not seeing the world and getting out there so seeing the world and getting out there was important to you and you've helped many many people working with them to understand things that are invisible or belief system. How do you explain a belief system to people. And what are some of the characteristics of the beliefs that people have when they seek you out for help so for me the best way i explain it as by using a metaphor in the metaphor would be an iceberg. So that we. The top of the iceberg is really what we're very conscious of and some of us are are conscious of some things but most of our bill are more in the subconscious mind their below consciousness and what the scientists have shown is that because the brain is in a the brainwaves of a child are in a data state which hypnotherapist all know about the fate of state. It's a it's a very slow moving state the most of your beliefs about whether you're valuable. How the world works whether somebody wants to listen to. You are formed under the age of seven. And that's what's mostly in the subconscious. There's other times you can get beliefs but data is primarily a state. You're in under the age of seven so when people say to. You like will y y. I shouldn't believe i don't believe that anymore. There's usually a part of you. That still does believe it. And that's where. I learned that i had to learn some new ways to get in there and hackett into shifts things that are in the subconscious. Mind so if i understand you correctly. What you're saying is is that based upon our normal everyday operating we have brainwaves that operate at a faster rate and then many of the beliefs that we have were laid into our brain imprinted upon us when we were much younger and the brainwaves at age were travelling at a different frequency and in order to make changes to them. We need to be able to access them in a different way than than just normal consciousness other than just normal conversations cover sessions might be fine for detailing a different course of action or developing a strategic plan but in word make changes individuals it because each one of us comes with a different background different history. A different set of messages imprinted. That's when we need to use different techniques in order to access that level of deeper imprinting. Is that accurate. That's accurate when a child is born. The brainwaves are very slow there in delta. Which is why baby sleep then. Under the age of seven they move either primarily not all the time in this state and that's why children have imaginary friends. Santa claus real. They're like they're they. You can tell a child something and they believe you know they just believe it you know and then they get to be over seven. The catcher catholic. That's when they'd call it the age of reason. And you can make your first communion go to confession of your sins and you know the difference. You move out of this black and white thing and you had you can see more gray and you move more up to alpha beta which is a faster one in anybody who's got a teenager. They're always an alpha beta ray. They're not say it's really hard to program teenager but it's not hard to program child a lot of the things that we talk about in programming when we're talking about laying in some of these early belief systems do kind of created indirectly many times.

What is the Ice Hotel?

"The ice hotel is a hotel. An art exhibition made of ice from the river. Torne each year reincarnated end. The brand new design a place to discover silence northern lights glistening snow clad forests reindeer cloud berries kettle coffee and so much more every year when the torne river turns to ice. A new ice hotel is created in a very small village of yuccas yari. In the north of sweden the ice of the river transforms to design and architecture and ephemeral art project and the world's first and largest hotel belt of snow and ice every year. Since i was a little girl. I have wanted to visit the ice hotel in sweden. It was a long shot. But i figured it was a dream and nothing would come of it. I imagined myself at the magical place made of ice and snow and how would be unusual and a once in a lifetime experience for me after all. I have had my time and stockholm sweden. But that's as far as my travels in. Sweden took me northern. Sweden would have to be for another time. I had rubbed shoulders with adults from my swedish language. Learning camp in bemidji minnesota which. I went to every october to better my conversational and writing skills and the swedish language and found the stories fascinating. I asked them to tell me their tales again and again. The older women some of them actually swedes from sweden took liberties with their stories and change them up a bit just for the fun of it every time it was a new adventure one of the stories that might have been up. Made me giddy with excitement and marymount. It was based around christmas time and it seemed so cozy in real. Surely it must be true. I didn't ask though. I imagined myself as being sabine. She'd that was telling the story and having the is hotel experience. Imagine with me arriving from stockholm to the ice hotel and yucca. Crv right on the torn revolver. The torne river is where they get all the ice for the ice hotel. The many designers engineers architects artists and workers start building the hotel from scratch every year. A labor of love. No doubt this year they were having a very special christmas. Celebration and architects engineers and designers were making special holiday installations special trees and wreaths the lap of an ice santa claus to sit on to tell your christmas wish to glistening chandeliers adorned with red and green colors projected onto the mini lighted fixtures some spaces clean and monochromatic swedish as expected and some fanciful like a childhood memory of a colorful christmas season. Passed my five cents is were working overtime. I smelled holly and evergreen saw the different colors of projected lights felt the unbearable coldness hurt the piano. Playing jazz seasonal selections center to my right or was it to my left and i was greeted at the front reception with champagne and cloud berries something. I don't even think we have an america. The woman behind the ice desk gave me a reindeer skin blanket to put over my shoulders and walked me to an outdoor firepit only steps away on the outside of the building a roaring fire and wonderful ice chairs covered in some more reindeer blankets. My mind was blown away with excitement. What else would i experience. I had just started my four night adventure in this cold winter. Christmas wonderland soon enough. I was handed a mug of coffee with rum. And i knew this was where i wanted to call home forever. More adventurers came to sit by the firepit with the same wide. Eyed wonder and spirited excitement. I smiled but kept my eyes glued to the fire but all the visitors new that the ice and snow wouldn't last long as the ice hotel closed down in april before my trip was over i will have gone across the wilderness in snowshoes. Go on sleigh rides with reindeer. See the northern lights had met the saami people of lapland. I will have eaten swedish. Christmas cuisine and watched the saint lucia event. But for now time stood still as i glazed is over the fire and dreamed later i would be shown to the room. I selected my very own ice room with an actual ice table complete with a mini refrigerator and colored ice sculptures of christmas past and reindeer blankets covering my ice bed and an actual fireplace. I can watch while laying in bed. The time seemed like an endless christmas trip. But also that. If i didn't hurry i'd miss the whole thing in a blink of an eye. I grew sleepy and dreamed of a wonderful time. The one thing i knew was that this wouldn't be my last time here at the ice hotel for christmas yes there would be more visits and perhaps a chance to be a worker in making it all come together for the holiday season later that first night i was given cheese and blog a red wine with rum learning all new things about the swedish way of life hand was going to be a you fork experience for shore

Leave Out Porridge for Belligerent Elves on Christmas Eve

"More trip to europe before christmas to explore some interesting traditions. This time in denmark as kids in america may be getting ready to leave out cookies for santa on friday and don't worry after his scientifically dubious assertions about old saint nick having magical immunity to covid nineteen. Dr fauci has since clarified that. He took a trip to the north pole to vaccinate santa claus himself. Anyways wall here in the us. It's cookies for santa. in denmark. Children leave out porridge for mischievous lives as bribe to make sure they behave the elves. Not the kids. The idea of needing to keep these elms or nisa. Happy goes back to at least the middle ages when farmers explained various bad luck and the hardships of a long winter on the nisa farm. If you kept the nissan happy your livestock would survive the winter in all else would go. Well if you disrespected or upset the nida you may find horrors in the morning like your cow. Having dropped dead to stay on your nieces good side families began offering him a bowl of porridge. On christmas eve. Poor inge was a common staple at the time but the one for the nissan would be special made of rice instead of oats or barley boiled in milk and topped with butter. atlas obscure shares. One account of someone not leaving out the proper offering quote in one story a milkmaid designed to play a trick on her farms. Nissa hiding the butter beneath the porridge. Seen his offering on garnished the niece of flies into a rage and kills the families. Cow finishes his meal and realizes his mistake. He solves the problem by stealing a neighbor's cow and delivering it to his family's farm and quotes. So you really didn't want to get on their bad side. There are many artworks depicting the nisa as almost demonic looking elves throughout the fifteen and sixteen hundreds but by the century they had started taking on more of a happy christmas elf. Kind of look quoting again. A child sized bearded man and appointee red cap traditional garb for farmhands and quotes and met martin anderson curator at the national museum of denmark. Chalks this change up to industrialization and urbanization saying that quote. The nisa was away for rural farmers to explain seemingly random events like illnesses among livestock. They had these thoughts because they couldn't explain bacteria or things like that. She says as people gained a better understanding of agricultural science denisa didn't need to serve the role of scary scapegoats anymore and quotes nowadays. The nsa or even more jolly and innocence. They may still play pranks like stealing. One sock or families may nominate someone to play the role of the nsa and play small pranks on other family members throughout the month of december. But you no longer have to worry about your house's nisha killing you war your animals but people still leave the sweet porridge out for him on christmas eve although now they usually enjoy some of it themselves as well and i will say that. There are other similar kinds of nieces folklore and traditions throughout the other nations in scandinavia in some places. He's called the toyota.

You know being with my with my name was over here and my elite dan. Yes so here in california you know that was that was beautiful. And then the the tradition of the mollis you know and make you know that became really really big. You know so christmas Was was a beautiful time in you know and a time of family you know i can agree with both of you. That was my most favorite holiday. Probably outside of halloween. Because i like. I used to like dressing up scaring people but as a little kid like you guys said you know. We wake up early in the morning because you want to open up your presence or even sometimes they will let us open up the presence like at midnight. You know so we would try to fight to stay awake. And then when christmas day came we would open them up because as you guys know at least for an our family and most latino mexican families. We celebrate christmas on christmas eve. That's the yeah shabangu. There's christmas eve right and my mom and dad especially my mom's really religious so we they will go hard core mandible sada's and and The singing and and the in a would prey and the rosary and and at the and it was it was beautiful. That's what i grew up with. It was totally awesome. But the the best part of it is being being. The best part was being a little kid. It just enjoying unwrapping the presents waking up early and just remembering that. It was all my cousins because we were the party house. Everybody would go to my mom and she was.

"On that later. That's my point number one. I mean a whole lot of nonsense. Obviously james you've tried with speed argument which is garbage. We never if all the media of santa we've never seen him actually move that fast when you see santa delivering presents. He's slowly gets down. The chimney walks over grabs a glass of milk in this takes way longer than point. Zero zero three seconds. Unless i'm to believe. I'm watching super fast camera. Work ray is moving that slow or is he speeding up the relative time in the area. He's in and we just aren't aware of it. Well i can tell you. According to the marvel database. I got a. I got some fear arguments right here. The official marvel database. It's people on one to seven and in strength. Santa ranks to in strength and a two in speed. Because he's neither of the things that you're saying right now he. There is a caveat here that on christmas eve. His powers get boosted so it does have him at a seven speed because according to the marvel database he uses a teleport or to get around very very quickly on christmas eve and his strength hits increased because his power level goes up on christmas eve. So if we're fighting at christmas eve. You have a tougher version of santa claus. And i'll even give it to you. That's fine. he is still not flash level speed. he's still not hitting anyone with an infinite mass punch. How dare you even try to pull that fast. One by a beloved judge. Fast like frank. I just. I'm just very upset with you as as judge. I do have one clarifying question to ask before we really get into my two bits. Are we talking about santa from earth. Six one six specifically because that's who you're describing the The stats of is this. Marvel universe santa. and if not is the senator from our own world. Answer your question frank. Yes with some sort of weird thing where it's going to be every version of santa. He wants but another incident. He got away with this last year. He's going to try to get away with good again. And and i appreciate not letting him. So the inspiration for using santa. In general frank came from ray stickiness. We did a battle of macron versus as great version of unit are using. He's like all of them. Because you neutron exists with any every universe so i will use every ability of every unit chronic across the universe and the judge who was brilliant. By the way not seem. Name's robert clarkson allowed it. And i'm like okay cool. We'll go with this president. I actually kinda liked this argument. That's how i'm using. Different systems. Macron is what they call a singularity and that it is the same unit cost. And you're trying to get a transformers hawk a transformers voice who i assume already knows that. And you're trying to boldface lied to a second time number one james. It's the christmas season. You're getting coal kind of want to rewatch the one with gently. Remember exactly exactly. Watch the one with gently great movie. So i'm frank point number one. Where's your head right now. There's a couple of things that i'm gonna need to hear. I get how durable how quickey heels talking about ghost rider. And how nigh invulnerable he is especially with the demon connected to him. But the one thing that. I'm a little bit. Hung up on is the holy weapons. So if santa claus going through the history of santa claus and his connection to the christian holiday of christmas is he inherently holy so that if he sucks on a candy cane to make shift is that now a holy weapon so i need to hear more justification that that is not or is the case. Now that though speaking of santa's abilities we know ghostwriters ability. No matter which the ghost rider is. He has those year round. I need to know that if he can teleport if there's not a device that he uses in his pocket or if he can only do it if the wind blows in a northwestern direction in the middle of somalia it. I need to know the specifics. Because i don't know that he's as fast as the flash he could teleport. It's not. I need to hear more about that. I need. I need to go down that avenue a little more. But he is an immortal. So so we're demons. My man's mind's not made up yet all right. I just hope. I just hope frank that i have something in one of my next few points. That will is exactly what you're talking about really. I don't know i. I'm hoping it somewhere. They'll have to look through my magical santa bag so all right rate go ahead and hit us with your point number. Two point number. Two for ghostwriter. No let's talk about the offensive capabilities. We've already established that. Santa can't hurt ghost rider in any meaningful way without him immediately. Regenerating it but let's talk about how ghostwriters going to beat the living heck out of santa claus because he has what's called a hellfire okay and hellfire is a cold flame of all things and he can use it either infusing it into his own body or into any weapons that he wields or he can project it from his head like a like a fire blast at any enemies that he has. And what's really excellent about this hellfire is that it doesn't necessarily melt you because it's a cold flame it does attack you as a cold flame would but also attacks your soul it also attacks you in italy in a metaphysical way and santa claus. I have to believe has a soul. He is human based if not elf based depending on which version of the myth. You'd like to in marvel's version. He's a very powerful mutant which makes him human. Based which means he has a soul that can be attacked with its hellfire and could absolutely drive him down. It makes an effect. He's made of magic. Near as i can tell the way james describes him. Well if you were in magical person the hellfire actually hurts you extra. It actually does more damage to you if you are magically based good for me. We talked about the infusing. Because he's got those very powerful chains that he's been able to infuse with the fire and if he wraps those around santa claus. Santa claus is having a very very bad day with very very burned suit. Not just that. He's so strong ghostwriter is that he was able to wrap a chain around skyscraper yang the whole skyscraper down on top of the hulk at one point holy crap. What an amazing thing to do with your chain power and if he can slice a building in half could slice a jolly fatman red soup in half as well. The other thing. I want to talk about here is the speed because ghostwriter doesn't just fight on his feet ghostwriter often will fight you on a motorcycle and this motorcycle is absolutely incredible. It's engaged in flames. It can fly through the eric and defy physics. It can ride on water. Basically whatever the writers decide this motorcycle and do and he's so good on this motorcycle being a stunt driver of motorcycles in his previous life and current life really that he can do stunts and feats on his motorcycle. That even normal people couldn't do on this magical motorcycle. One of the most impressive things he did in a speed feet is one time he was fighting all the avengers. Because that's ghostwriter. Is thor through his hammer at ghost. Rider ghostwriter actually of course dodge the hammer and then he said oh. I have an idea and he raced the hammer. Going faster than thors hammer through. The air grabbed the hammer knowing full. Well he was not worthy enough to wield it and let it pull him with intense speed all the way back to four and walked him with it when it arrived on context very smart fighter. Very fast fighter. Very strong fighter. I don't know how a magical attacking hellfire doesn't rip santa asunder.

"santa claus" Discussed on #WhoWouldWin

"Clause was an anglicized. The name santa claus in a story that appeared in new york newspaper in seventeen. Seventy three since that time. Santa claus has become the larger than life legend. Where on christmas eve in case you didn't know he rises magical sleigh pulled by even more magical reindeer as he breaks into people's homes in order to bring police two girls and boys people around the world love santa claus and the wonderful joy. He brings to the world every christmas and race occasions. How dare you fighting inside this year. Just what kind of monster argue. And here's an interesting fact about santa claus by the way did you know that. Just like your favorite superhero james jazzy. Santa claus is wait for it canadian. It's true kind of it's simple santa. Mrs claus received the f. passports in two thousand thirteen from canada during a special ceremony in toronto immigration minister chris. Alexander said the holiday like so many canadian citizens who enjoy extensive travel around the world by the way. That's not a canadian. Do the clauses were thrilled to receive thirty passports which are among the world's accepted insecure travel documents whether you're traveling by car by boat or with a team of rain here. The united states and every other country claim to santa claus has yet to respond but this definitely has international incident written all over it and now you have the paxton. Both opponents prank. Do you have any questions before we get started. Oh my gosh well It gives the the the the lions gonna find out. Who's naughty or nice very different meeting when you have a giant flaming extending chain so. I'm very excited to see what you guys are gonna throw down so am i. I'm a little nervous. Mothers matchup as i always am ray and give us your point number one point number one for ghostwriter. I just wanna talk about the durability of this character because you're really really really really really hard to bring down the ghost rider. It's been said that kicking him is like kicking a block of cement. A block of cement does not give your foot and ankle. Give so when you try to physically hit not that santa claus is going to be able to do a heck of a lot physically to begin with but it's worth bringing up the durability of this character because he is virtually immune to damage physical damage. You can hurt him but he would just regenerates right away. And even then he shrugs off most damage most of the time in fact if you're even able to knock out much like the character venom. If you're able to knock out the human host johnny blaze through some some enchantment. Some sort of really really vicious hit the demon or spirit. That's inside of him. Just takes over the body and keeps fighting with fewer morals than before and that is not a good place to find yourself in in fact johnny blaze keeps this character in check as much as he's going to he he's immune to pretty much all physical damage he's immune to magical damage enchanted. Damn it's like he'll take some he'll take worse if it's magic damage that he will. It's regular physical damage. But he's able to recover from it very very quickly and really the only way to really hurt him is with a holy weapon of some kind. And that is really. What's known. And i haven't seen santa claus wielding the holy hand. Grenade of antioch anytime in recent or near or past tutors anywhere. In fact one point ghostwriter had his whole body destroyed by gigantic galactic level blast boom. He was gone. He regenerated before the blasted even subsided and walked out of it. So what is santa claus possibly going to do to ghostwriter that's going to be able to keep him down for the count heck. This is a guy who ate a vial of nitroglycerin. his head poof. Out like a cartoon character with a little smoke billowing out of his ears like you would see at elmer fudd character do and then he was just okay anyway. Let's go ahead and keep going. He saved somebody by eating nitroglycerine again. What is santa and his reindeer going to do against a character this ridiculously. Oh p now. It's also worth mentioning besides being immune to all forms of damage that he has a special teleportation. Power is well in that he can open up a gate and teleport himself or others to The hell dimension and then back to the earth dimension he really only goes to those two places so of james. If you're trying to get some sneaky in with your battlefield removal. That i know you love to do and i'm gonna get ahead of you right now. I don't know how santa would even do it. But i'm sure you've found some wacked comic out there. Some howard the duck or something out there that santa heerden. That has him doing something. Weird ghost rider can just teleport to hell. Teleport back to the battlefield no problem. I'm ahead of you on this one and that's my point number one so so ray okay. Yeah here's thing goes right as a really hard opponent to prepare for it. Because i remember in the world war hulk limited series for marvel big crossover event that when the hall comes back to earth. And he's just wrecking everything goes comes in and the hulk just like smashes the you know what out of him and goes right. Just get back up. And that was one of the most powerful versions of the hulk. So i do have to admit this. Ghost rider is extremely durable. Really hard to hurt. I do agree with you. It does take something of a religious nature that spiritual religious nature to hurt ghost rider. Which is why this makes it a tricky match of air force so not arguing a lot for that. I will say. I disagree it. Most people kick cinderblock in hurts. I know for a fact. If our judge frank reich kick a cinderblock it big blows. The dust is not a problem for us. So i'm going to disagree with you. Point james yes true all right so let me go to my point number one here. Let's just go over the base level powers of santa claus that we all take for granted. So we're not flying a strategy for santa claus for this ballot. It you really got to ask yourself what kind of superpowers does he have to accomplish. What he does on christmas eve as the obvious and kind of drill. Download it so base up. Just in general knowledge everyone has opposite. We turn many things about jolly old saint nick so let's talk speed for a second. I've mentioned this before. But i'll say it again to be able to deliver presents to billions of kids around the world in a period of one night. Santa needs to cover over a hundred twenty two million miles in less than twelve hours right. That means his average speed is above ten million miles per hour. Now sure santa's writing this lead that's be but he's not in the cockpit just red jacket. His hat is gloves. He doesn't aim to protect them. You'd over five billion hours of miles per hour always at santa's supremely durable. It can take insane levels of punishment that was literally tear apart. almost any other superhuman. You can think of by the way and that speed satisfied would also have out of something really insanely durable probably adamantine and who knows what it's made of anyway. Santa claus also has this is race favor. Point flash level super speed based off my calculations so of santa were enter each of the approximately eighty thousand homes in north america. Leave presence cookies. Drink milk and then leave. He would take zero point. Zero zero zero three seconds to do so arousal and that's just the homes in the us. That's how fast flash would have to move to accomplish the same thing and by the way that means a black. Santa can move that fast. He can do raise favorite technique. We've ever covered win. Fights could. I won't tell you. Merry christmas rank. Santa could theoretically land the infinite mass punch that the flash uses. You know we're exhilarates a punch from zero two lightspeed instantly and hits a person with infinite mass which means he hits way. Heart and superman could merry christmas. Santa can do that. Also has super strength as evidenced by the fact that he has to lift and carry huge amounts of presence from a sled down chimneys. He's moving around with some with some people. Dear is to billions of pounds of presence with him at any one time. Billions of pounds of presence. And he's using the super speed super strength and super durability for hours upon hours which means his endurance is also for human. He's also got super stealth as he commits mention for breaking entering billions of times with by the way the vast majority of time never being seen heard or otherwise detected and none of this takes into consideration that for a fact. Santa claus is immortal. So you can even be hurt. Because i've never seen it and as great as these points are these are actually the weaker powers and abilities of santa more.

"How the grinch stole christmas by dr seuss. Every who down in whoville light. Christmas a lot but the grinch live just north of veal did not the grinch hated christmas whole christmas season. Please don't ask why no one quite knows. The reason it could be as head wasn't screwed on just right it could be. Perhaps his shoes are too tight. But i think that the most likely reason of all may have been that. His heart was two sizes too small. Whatever the reason is hard or shoes. He stood there on christmas eve. Hating the who's staring down from his cave with a sour grinchey frown. The warm lighted windows below on the town for he knew every who down in whoville beneath was busy now hanging mistletoe wreath and they're hanging stockings. E snarled with a sneer. Tomorrow is christmas it practically here. Then he growled with his grinch figures nervously drumming. I must find some way to stop christmas from a main for tomorrow. He knew all the who girls and boys would wake brighton early. They'd rush for their toys and then whole the noise show the noise. Doi's noise noise. That's one thing. He hated the noise. Noise noise noise. Then the who's young and old would sit down to a feast. And they feast on they feast and they feast. Feast feast feast. They would feast on who pudding and rare who rose beast which was something that grinch couldn't stand in the least and then they do something he liked. Leashed all every who down in whoville. The tall and this mall would stand close together with christmas bells ringing. They'd stand hand in hand and who's would start singing. They'd sing sing sing. sing sing. Sang and the more the grinch thought of the who christmas saying the more the grinch thought. I must stop this whole thing. Why for fifty three years. I've put up with it now. I'm must stop christmas from coming. But how then he got an idea. An awful idea the grinch gonna wonderful off idea. I know just what to do. The grinch laughed in his throat and he made a quick santa claus hat and a coat and he chuckled and clucked. What a great grinchey trick with this code in this hat. I'll look just like saint. Nick all i need a reindeer. The grinch looked around but since reindeer are scarce there were none to be found. Did that stop the old grinch. No the grinch simply said if. I can't find a reindeer make quan instead. So he called his dog max then. He took some red thread and he tied bighorn on the top of his head. Then he loaded some bags and symbols empty sacks on a ramshackle sleigh and he hitched up old. Max then the grinch said got up and the slaves started down toward the homes. Where the who's they snooze in their town all their windows were dark quiet. Snow filled the air. And the who's were all dreaming sweet dreams without care when it came to the little house on the square. This is stop number one. The old grinchey clause est any climbed to the roof. Empty bags his fist then. He slid down the chimney around tight pinch but if santa could do it then socal the grinch he got stuck only once for a moment or two then. He stuck his head out of the fireplace flu where the little who stockings all hung in a row. These stockings grin are the first things to go. Then he slithered and slunk with a smile most unpleasant around the whole route and he took every president. Pop guns bicycles roller-skates drums checkerboards tricycles popcorn plums. And he stuffed them in day than the grinch buried nibley stuff dole the bags one by one then. He slumped to the ice box. He took the who feast. He took a who pudding. He took the roast beast. He cleaned out the icebox. Quick flash way the grinch even took the last can of who hash

"Host. Aaron moon and while usually this is a podcast where i talked to old people about finding god in weird places today. We're doing something a little different. I'm getting to chat with one of my very good friends. Santa claus now real quick when we talk to your grownup. Hey gus santa. And i made this episode just for kids. But i think you'll have a great time listening to it as well but just a quick disclaimer. You might want to enjoy the episode on your own. I just to make sure it. Check all your boxes before you listen with your favorite kid or kids. And if you haven't had a chance please be sure to check out the bay the jason proper episode this month all about santa as well but it's for grown ups only okay now that that's out of the way and this is really important. Sanitex texted me earlier and wanted me to make sure to tell you that he recommends listening to this episode while also doing one of his favourite activities making cookies sitting around a fire drinking hot chocolate or snuggling in your favourite cozy. Pj's with your favorite people before we jump into my interview. A santa i wanted to tell you about a man who inspired santa in his current job. A guy named saint nicholas saint nicholas. Lived a long time ago in a place called Tara which is in modern day. That's turkey the country not turkey. The bird very important distinction before he was saint nicholas. He was just nicholas a young man who really loved to jesus and wanted to love other people because of that love nicholas parents were very wealthy but sadly they passed away leaving all their things and all their money to their young son instead of keeping to themselves nicholas looked around and saw lots of people who needed things close food money to pay the bills and he decided that he would share what he had with others now. Nicholas knew a lot about the bible and he read it a lot hoping to learn more about god and how god wanted him to live in the world. He remembered some words. Jesus had said in the book of matthew about when you help other people. Don't let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Which is just a fancy bob away to keep it a secret when you do something nice for something else. The reason jesus wanted a stew that is because he knows that sometimes we like to make ourselves look fancy and special for doing nice things for people when really we should just do nice things because we love him and we love other people not really because we wanna make ourselves look important so nicholas really took that seriously and he would leave presents for people late at night. When everyone was in bed and asleep they would wake up and be so surprised to find a bag of gold coins or clothes or food and had no idea who sent it. This really made nicholas happy. Because he loved seeing other people feel loved as he got older nicholas became bishop which just meant that. He was in charge of some churches in turkey and he spent his whole life helping others. He didn't really worry about whether he was important. College money he had the main thing in his life was helping people and he became known as the guy you went to when you needed help people who were put in jail unfairly news. That nicholas would work to set them free. If you had a problem nicholas was your guy. After nicholas died remember. He lived a really long time ago. People thought that he had a very special relationship with god so they made him sane with that even though he lived a long time ago we can know about him today. And that's how i heard about him. And today he honors his favorite saint by sharing gifts of people the world as a way to show his love for god so now that you know about saint nicholas is time for our interview with santa claus so if you need a hot chocolate refill now is the time to push pause and make sure your extra cozy.

"Let's get into our first section. The spiritual dakota ring when art or culture is not obviously religious. We need to use a specific faith-based lens by which to view at extracting inherent the allergy from an otherwise secular text. If we place our spiritual dakota on santa claus what do we see in other. Words isn't santa claus faith adjacent so first thing. We're going to give a brief overview of how we got traditional santa claus how christians have generally viewed the character santa claus and how alexander hamilton is. Santa ajay's so listen a lot of what we know as modern day. American santa claus is based off of clement clarke. Moore's visit from saint nicholas which is colloquially known as twas the night before christmas and also coca cola ats our version of santa is pretty much in america mation of many different cultures and that coupled with the fact that coca cola and poem in a newspaper kind of set this installed on it feels very american in the best way but in fact santa clauses name can the dutch version of saint nicholas center claus. And really it's just within recent years that saint nicholas really got in on this santa claus game and people kind of began marrying the legends to each other as i was researching this episode. I i never thought that there was controversy with christians and santa claus but people have been rubbing on this particular ding-dong since the four hundred's when a bishop preached a sermon against a kind of proto pre santa figure and the corresponding fees called the feast of the collisions I just want to read this. Because you could literally take this quote and put it in two thousand twenty and it would still apply with how some people feel about christmas and santa claus quote..

I want to dig together and there is an additional disclaimer for this particular episode that we will be talking about a certain christmas time job bringer and if you have little ears that do not need a podcast telling them secret insider information. You might want to wait before you've listened to it in front of them however there will be something fun in special dropping in feed just for those little ears very very soon so before we start. I think it's important to establish a baseline of my own. Personal history was santa claus and also kind of how we do it at the lunar module. So i grew up with santa and i have no memory figuring out like the actual deal. But if you ask my mom. I technically still believe in santa Because at our house senate stockings stockings are the best part of christmas. Outside of jesus obviously and my mom says if you do not believe you do not receive which i think translates roughly to do not squeal to the younger kids also make a public profession of faith in santa. Guess who doesn't actually get presents from santa. You and i am extremely gift oriented so this is very important to me now when benn my husband and i had kids this like a whole 'nother thing. My eldest was extremely anti-santa. It's super creeped. Her out that a random guy that we technically not going to break into our house while he slept and everyone was just cool with it so she would write to santa every year and ask specifically if rudolph could be the one to deliver our presence..

Pointy Ears (MM #3559)

"The with kevin mason not been a lot on tv so when we got the tv on the weekend since. We're not going anywhere. Five indulged my wife and we watched more hallmark movies or lifetime movies or on one of the networks. The other day. We watched all of the santa claus movies with tim allen and then watch all the toy story movies back to back so we spent an entire day watching christmas movies and a lot of christmas. Elves showed up and of course that made me wonder why we always portrayed elves with pointy ears. That's how you tell. A person is an elf. They have a year. Sure spock at point two years and he wasn't enough but outside of that and maybe some habits if it's christmas and you got point years while they're in elf that's how you tell when they're dressed in street clothes they're really elves in disguise often wondered where the elf pointy ears thinking about. It's not something. I ever really thought about until this past weekend. When i saw these elle's all over the place and lo and behold each and every one of with pointy years. Now you and. I both know they're just actors usually child actors. Because i'll be honest with you. I don't know about you. I still haven't seen one in real life yet.

Schools Work Around The Pandemic To Provide Holiday Concerts

"This is the time of year when many parents crowd into schools for a school holiday concert. Which is obviously not happening in most schools in 2020, so schools are adapting. Here's Peter Medlin of our member station. W N I J and DeKalb, Illinois, a course of kids belted out holiday favorites. Parents packed in an old stuffy gymnasium, jostling for shaky camera position to get the perfect Facebook video of their child in there Elf costume in the holiday concert. Not so much this year. Instead, some schools are getting creative in an effort to deliver some desperately needed holiday cheer. Mary Beth Kona is the principal at Spectrum, a small private school in Rockford, Illinois. Today they're filming the innovative Elves. Holiday show slash music video. He says. This year, there will be no sneaking out the back door after your kid's song ends in this, they're going to get a nice close up shot. Every kid's gonna get to be seen on the video multiple times that they can share with many family members. Like thousands of music teachers across the country, Super Tse's spent most of her time trying to teach remotely from our basement. Right now she's here with her students sporting a Santa Claus facemask and making this video you'll be the only time most of her students will be together this fall. Puts herds class after class into the camera shot while trying to keep students spread out. Notice. What that way your circle Evan, colorful circles doctor ground where each student performs 6 ft. Away from the others. I know groovy now. Kindergartner Luna practices her classes song as they're getting ready and ensues, Mark. Action for the families who chose to learn remotely this fall. Their kids are gonna be recording themselves dancing at home and will be sliced into the final show with everyone else. Workarounds like this are happening everywhere. Maggie's Bradley has the National Association for Music Educators, which provides training for music teachers. And although the pandemic presents significant challenges for all educators, music instruction is particularly difficult were the ones that always want to be shoulder to shoulder to do things and celebrate, so it's been difficult? The students have missed it because they want to perform together. But also the teachers. Spotty WiFi make zoom band practice is really tough and sometimes confusing, but it goes beyond that. Pandemic continues to highlight inequities and education students without Internet access and schools that can't afford instruments to a student stuck with no tuba. That means pivoting to something else, like providing software so students can create their own beats and rhythms. And like this school, finding new ways to perform for an audience staying at home. Felix is 1/4 grader here who plays the Alto sax. It's a little crazy, but I mean, at least I get to see all my friends and flown my instrument. As have to wear a mask he looks in his classmates are now lined up to record the show's grand finale parade. Cameron's gonna be right here soon. Super says the veal be posted online, so families can make popcorn and watch it from the comfort of their own couches. And Grandma can watch the same exact show without someone standing in front of her trying to take a video of their kid performing for NPR News. I'm

Christmas in Holland

"Let's start with what the holidays were like growing up in the netherlands. That's where lisbeth enhanced was born and raised. Thank you said. I should go on radio. Yeah i think so. I'd love to hear what. Christmas is like in your memory. Let's pretend your five year old girl in small town in the netherlands and christmas eve what do you what did you just do. What's happening tonight. And what happens tomorrow. Oh well you see for us. Christmas was really a family. Feast because probably you know in the netherlands. Originally we never had gifts at christmas. It was the real religious holiday and a family holiday. In my case. I remember my mother started. Prepare the house to decorate it and she had little planks and we put mawson eat with a wire and then we put all kind of green leaves like hawley and other little objects to decorate the house and we fixed it on the wall and we put it on the table and then of course we made the wreath for the front door and then you were hoping it would be snowing on the right day. Because i remember the connie fear the big tree in our garden when there was snow on each and my father would put lights that was magic and then just before christmas. My mother came up with the real christmas tree. And you know when. I was really very young. We had real candles but the clip ons real candidates under the tree inside the house yes and there was a white sheet on the floor to protect the four and then there was a basket with water in case the tree would be set on fire so it was only allowed to light the candles when daddy nami were there and we hardly moved of course because there could be a fire but it was magic to see all these flames burning and then we got it a beautiful dog and it was too dangerous so we had to put electric lights but it was still very nice now for a little child. Who is there a santa claus figure that brings the gifts that seat because christmas without presents because our santa claus is called sinter glass and he has his birthday on the sixth of december. So that is the real exciting. Feast for gifts. And i really. I would be willing to set up an association to save that son abrasion. Because i think it's the most beautiful feast in the world. Why well first of all as a child. You believe in santa claus. He is bishop coming from spain on the big ship with his assistance. Who are black pitas. They are funny dressed and are doing funny things at croats. They are little bit naughty. And you're scared of him because he is the one who could eventually put you in the sack if you hadn't been a nice job but year cintas class is keeping book and he's writing in the book if you were good or bad sell. It is very well organized into netherlands because about three weeks before the six of december which is his birthday. He officially arrived on the big ship in amsterdam and this is transmitted on television. So you are looking at it because you know once. He's in the country. Your parents will allow you to put your old shoe at the chimney. Of course many people had central heating of a problem. But you find a solution you put your shoe in front of the door or whatever anyway. Some problems for a child to believe in san nikolas because one hour later after yet seen him arriving on television in amsterdam. He's arriving in your village as well and so you say to mother. How is that possible. So then she usually explains you while there is the real warm and he has assistance because there are so many children like you. The real one cannot cope with all that

No that was just thought it went through my head for one moment. That's all okay alright. What's lied after all. Santa claus is really the ultimate judgment comes to you. So it's this one isn't such a question as it seems more of a confession says i want left you phallic shaped cookies as a joke and i'd like to apologize. That was immature with me. That right that was. Do you remember never want you accept their apology. Oh sure i do. We all make mistakes. Some people just want to have a little bit of fun. That's all harm no foul. What's the spin off about what's the worst thing. So what do you like like. Obviously people cookies a lot right now when i was little. My dad told me we were making cookies.

"Get what i really want to give this year any tips anyway. Does mrs claus droppings for you. Oh does she drop hands. Let me tell you. Have you ever seen a break coming at you. No well you know what she does. I think she thinks she's being clever. But i've caught onto her. She gets all these magazines and all these catalogues in the mail. And what she does is she. Kind of folds over the paper you know it's called dog-eared and she kind of folds it over to the page where she and then she leaves those in next to the commode. I can get the idea. It doesn't take a genius to figure it out okay. The next question here is They're very impressed. With how organized. You are obviously keeping all the kids in the world an adult organiz and they wanna know. What's what's a little tip that they could give. Their husband is the how to stay more organized. Or how to be a little more organized. Organize who organized around here he said. Oh it's mostly gay us that's it's the l. They keep me in line and you know the hardest thing for me to do you know. Sometimes i'll pick up a tool to make a toy. And i'll it down and we about where i said it down so it's best if you can remember report put it back and zach found that way it will always be there but when you have so many elves running around here and everybody sharing duels again. It gets a little crazy especially this time of year. We're racing against the clock okay. Well that's kind of a win. For for unorganized guys out there. santa said. Listen he's not organized either so yes just back off get the job. Done word worried about the organization later on. Here's an interesting one. If you could change one thing about christmas and the holiday season what would it be. Oh i think let's see. I'd probably not do christmas in july. I know off a little bit. You know when you're in california so you know when it's a hundred degrees outside and you go inside and use the commercial for christmas in the middle of the summer Then worst wait a little let it get a little cooler at least fled. Leaves fall off the trees before his dogmatic crispus. That's a good point because listen christmas special because it's that time of year right stretch it out it's going to get you're gonna water down that's right got it right ear in a nutshell. This is interesting because you they want to know. Basically most people get tired of their jobs. Like there's day when they wanna call in sick. That i want to go now you technically. I guess you were fully one nine year. So maybe this isn't the case. Is there ever been a irish. I only work here. Why are you kidding now. Even celtics setup. Boy let me tell you come on up here north bull. You try to follow me around for one day. You won't be able to give up. The these are these are listeners. Santa that wasn't me. I'll let that one slide. A last thing. I need is the chief all. That's right by running out of them really a lot of bad people out there. You have no idea. What would you say how many how many people would you say. The percentage of people are are naughty. Well you know especially with the kids. We don't really have any naughty kids we just have. It's they're good kids but they have some issues that they need to work on everybody. All the kids are wonderful okay. They're just all really wonderful. So like i said have a few bad habits and we act as adults remind them you know what those bad habits are and to get back on the nice list. You see that's how that's kids just need encouragement and they need you know you need to give them good examples and that's really what's important. Give the kids some positive examples and and and the the flayed show kids about how things work is to is to show him learn by doing and if you set a good example the kids will pick up on that trust me. The kids are not stupid. they're smart santa. That was that was very well. Said not not that i should sound surprise because after all your santa claus but that was very well said there are no naughty kids. They're just absent habits and we have to lead by example. I love that. It's very nice but what about adults. Well that's never story. I don't think we have time to the answer on that. One on your show is there anything. Is there like a bar for naughty. Names like you would say you know what that's it. That's this the one thing that i won't that well i i'm old fashioned. I old school so a lot more. Get by these days than than i would like to thank but You know each zone very nice okay. This one's a again could be uncomfortable. Maybe not and says my wife put a baby on her christmas. I just wanted to know if that falls on you were me. I just don't wanna double up end up with to know you folks not. Hey i know what you should do. I've got an idea. You know what you get your car and you drive down to the town centre okay. And the always having the tv seemed out. I don't know where is going but for night where nobody's been st a make. Sure your cameras turned on okay and you swipe the little baby right out of the ring bring.

Movie well i kinda like some of the old fashioned ones like miracle on on thirty four three eight some of those. I really enjoy. i think. That's what mrs claus line says.

But it's a beautiful place but why is in some of those movies. I love that. Who would you say. This is actually another question here. I segue who would you say is did the best job portraying you in a. Oh what was that russell character. There he did a wonderful job but his beards. Not wide enough kurt russell. Is that the christmas chronicles guy right there. Sure he's any though you need baton up it well that is quite a. That's quite some high praise though from from santa claus.

How To Believe in Yourself

"Every monday i begin by asking. Have you done your homework. I'll keep it really short today because you probably heard it a thousand times. Do you like what's going on in your life right now or not. So yes or no. I guess you could have a. Maybe i prefer you have yes or no. If you like it you wanna make sure you you you keep it in your life right to make plans to keep it. There are a lot of folks caught a frankly off guard this past year and what they loved went away others refine are the things in your life right now. You'd rather not have. Well just make a decision today. They have to go by by. That's all when you take a few minutes to do that. To to look in every single area your family and your work and and where you live and all the stuff and just society if you like it or not what you're gonna do about it. Life changes go. Get my perfectly planner if you haven't already it's at motivation. Move dot com in the resource section. It takes just talked about the homework right and it kind of put it into a counter so we can control your time first and then have the ability for you to really focus on. What's important in your life or get it today. it's really gonna help you. So how'd you believe in yourself this time of year. It's one of these things that you hear a lot about. Cassini seal the santa claus movies right. Believe your belief. I should have confidence. Could you use a little bit more. I don't know anybody who couldn't use more. It's all relative depends on on the scale. You live on what you've done in your life as kids up to a certain age at certain age they kind of get be like many adults but at a certain age they just they always believe right. They don't know any otherwise it just it is what it is as adults you see the world through an entirely different set of eyes and depending what you've done in your life you could be completely screwed up saying right. Peeling confidence requires a little bit more focused. When you get a little bit older. I remember back years ago when i was teaching martial arts and teaching little kids i was gosh us thirty years old when i was doing that i guess and they had no confidence and frankly they're the ones who are more scared with the adults and the adults would step up the kids like let's break a board and it's a cool. We break the board. They're fine but those adults dead step up to this little quarter inch or half inch pine board and they're scared to death so we get into break the board because we understood if you broke the board that bill a little bit of confidence right and it's a yale it's another way let's see two in a row and they try to get like four and then the hurt a little bit so they wouldn't want to do that but that's what i always kind of began but really it's a mindset when you think about this what is it this this thing called belief in yourself. This thing called self confidence yourself. It's it's a mindset that you have learned over time via experience like breaking aboard but you know where this all begins. It all begins when you take care of yourself. I if you can't take care of your body your mind your own spirit if you can't give yourself a little self care if you can't be very proud of what you're doing for yourself not saying you are. You're not. I'm just saying if if you can't do that do you think maybe you might have a little less self confidence and belief in yourself at a very core level you know the surface see. I'm good. i'm good. I'm good but you know down deep inside that you're not doing what you need to be doing. Psych practice gratitude for real right so number one in building belief in yourself and having self confidence take time to eat right. Exercise to to read and meditate. Whatever it is to you every single day. See you'll feel stronger from the inside out when you do that. And you know it's true as a real feeling it's nothing you're like yeah. I'm good i'm good. No you really are good. I work with a lot of people. I gotta tell you. It doesn't take very long to challenge challenge where they are and basically figure out that the shortchanging themselves don't do that so once you take control of your life and you feel good about yourself man. I'm rockin every single day. I got a thing going on rock. And i feel good. I'm awesome now some expand. Your horizons a little bit because as long as you stay inside your own little self will. You're kind of awesome for yourself. But the how do you fit in the rest of the world.

"So the thing about gluck was this. He was a confidence man. He was a fraud. He made up all of his credentials and all that but with with the Santa Claus Association he actually did do something genuinely good for once. Yeah he did He started this organization and it was described as bottom up which is a good way to describe it because the donors and the people who did this were New York City residents? They were the real people he provided he created the APP. Basically can right exactly got people in touch with other people. Got These letters in the hands of folks that had a little extra extra money In the case of H Vanderbilt only ten dollars apparently which is still only like a couple hundred bucks to look at it was like two seventy five as a skinflint. I was thinking My we have a pretty good idea these days after looking at the inflation calculator for so many years. And that one definitely stunk Yep So people were volunteering A lot of people were from clubs and organizations but many just regular average New Yorkers who didn't have a lot of money themselves dope sometimes right so imagine this if you're a New Yorker and you feel like your city has literally turned its back. Almost literally turns his back on needy children by ignoring in their letters to Santa even though anybody could take in fulfill having gluck step up and say we can do this and create the Santa Claus Association it just filled the city with prize prizewinner. They started throwing money at the Santa Claus Association. Faster than it could use it. Yeah they I think that first year they answered the request of Twenty eight thousand thousand children that's astounding that is super standing. And they kept doing this for another like fifteen years or so and he kept asking for a little bit more money Like `have I it was when we cover the stamps. Sure just the stamps man. It yeah exactly mid that it was envelopes just as just a few envelope and then it was How about some money for the gifts you know? And then she said about this right in the middle of Manhattan. Let's build a Santa Claus building. Yeah he said that the Like the The unusual nature of our work kind of demands that we have our own space to work. In Yeah I mean. Was this just sort of being rubber-stamped the whole time because it seems like he it just kept getting more and more funds. Yeah the way that this history extra article puts it. Is that the optimism that post World War One and jazz age optimism really kind of created the sense of like we can do anything. Everybody's great of of course the guy was running. A Santa Claus Association is fine like have you heard jazz. Exactly what we can pay for Santa Claus building. Have you tried a jazz cigarette to try one of those. That like what Brad Pitt smoked and Once upon a time in Hollywood probably what was that. Oh no no no. That's a dip cigarette. It was just a pot a marijuana cigarette I think is what they call it today. Gotcha and they're like. Have you seen this new movie. Reefer madness. Amazing you're GONNA WANNA jump out a window you'll be so excited so eleven years in is is when the first macy's Christmas parade happens which would eventually become the Thanksgiving Day parade and it was all just sort of coalescing with catalogs and things like like that and everyone's everyone's notion of Christmas was just getting more and more commercial in more in the news and it was just a big big deal yeah. Christmas is became huge like the Christmas that we understand it today. That's right it happened during this time and it happened. During the time that Gluck Santa Claus Association was handling Answering the needy children of New York's Christmas wishes that's right but inter bird collar. New York's Commissioner of Public Welfare Fair. His motto was Hey. I'm not the bad guy here. Probably so he was charged with Going around to the unregulated charities as of New York City and Closing them down. I asking to see their financial records including what chuck while including the Santa Claus Association. Yes but inc.. In addition to Santa Claus Association. He would investigate block party so right that were raising money for the neighborhood. Because they hadn't registered as charitable organization. He was that kind of guy. You GotTa make sure they're the money's going in the right place. Yeah so he said this. Santa Claus Association fishy. I'm going after I mean gluck said Go. Yeah he did because he didn't keep great records which turned out to kind of save him because he didn't have much documentation? He could not be convicted of the crime When they found tens of thousands of dollars just unaccounted for basically nineteen twenty dollars? By the way that's right ten dollar donation I think I think A dead giveaway. That there might have been a fishy operation was that the headquarters of the Santa Claus Association was in the back of a steak house in Manhattan. I tried to find out what Steakhouse Elsa could not find it added to the closest I could find was it was in the wool or Woolworth's buildings all that do but that's it. There's no name for it or anything like that I. I wanted to know 'cause knowing New York City it's still there. It's not I didn't know if it was like a Qian's or something. No there's a They're the WOOLWORTH's building stiller but I'll bet at somebody's like trillion dollar apartment Matt Right now right. It's still dead beef. So gross I like we said Glut could not be convicted But they said you are definitely Leonov in charge of this Santa Claus Association Anymore They took away his letters and He left for Miami. I mean which is I mean talk about a- surefire way to submit yourself as a con man. He's like I'm off to Miami but the good news is they didn't start art sending letters back to the dead letter office Pretty soon the US Postal Service Would undertake operation Santa Claus which we talked about in a previous Christmas edition. uh-huh ironically Not Based on necessarily but I think gluck system was sort of an inspiration closely following it. Forget yeah they're like okay. Ah The guy went to Miami. We understand who he is now. That's right but it was a pretty good idea so we're going to stick to it and still to this day rather than The Santa Claus Association handling things. It's a committee of postal employees. That are now the the APP that connects children in need and and the donors that want to help them out on Santa clauses behalf. It's wonderful and Yeah hats off to Alex Palmer for that history extra Article among one of several. Well Merry Christmas. Everybody does for the short stuff. Short stuff away with sleigh bells..

Yes and Merry Christmas to you and Jerry and thank you for the Lump of coal you welcome And Jerry thank you for the red wagon. Yeah thank you for Ferrari Jerry. Wow I got the wrong red wagon. Yeah you gotTa Magnum. Pi Red Ferrari. Sorry Yeah it's pretty awesome. Amazing thanks again Jerry Anyway Since Christmas choke we have a special Christmas themed short stuff indeed and it's about out something called the Santa Claus Association If you WANNA ever learn more about Santa Claus Association make sure you put those words in quotes in your search engine engine. Because there's a lot of different Santa Associations. This is a specific. One that we're gonNA talk about yet. Also Add New York to that search. Yes that'll it'll really narrow it down to really well. So the Santa Claus Association. We're talking about hesitant backstory in the about the turn of the century The last century three okay And in New York City in the United States really the. US Postal Service had away a technique of dealing with little children's letters to Santa Santa the furnace. They would they would destroy them. That's right they would send these letters to the dead letter office and they would eventually be destroyed or in the worst case scenario. Return to the little center. Oh Wow that awful and it was even stamped return to little cinder yeah they had a special signing and it had. Yeah Yeah had like a reindeer on its back with X.. For is so the popular press the media as we call them today and the public said this is wrong. There's gotta be a a better way to do this. What if like charities could get their hands on these letters and then they can fulfill these these wishes because Santa's busy time for the letters? Maybe maybe some grownups could intervene and GROWNUPS yeah right and so they said that it was great and the Postmaster General at the time in nineteen o seven said that's fine. I'm commanding all post offices in the United States to just hand over letters to San at any charity that wants to fulfill them. I wonder if the postmaster smashed generals just like God with these letters. Like I'm trying to do a job. Yes that was the impression that I had not want to be in the Santa Mail business anymore. It has a godsend for them okay. Everything worked pretty well for nineteen o seven and then in one thousand nine hundred eight or during nineteen seven The Charitable Organization Society of New York. See US actually took it upon themselves to start investigating the backgrounds of some of the letter the writers to Santa and they went to their houses unannounced can you. Is there a little timmy. WHO lives here basically? Yeah and let's see. Let's see the crutches. Is that you mentioned in your letter. Ten and they actually determined that some of these letter writers more quite as needy them selves sound in their letters they determine that one little girl already had a doll. Oh boy anyway. This is enough to to get the postmaster general to reverse his decision in nineteen eighty said nope or sending them back to the dead letter office. That's right that outbursts that outcry the public outcry against that was even worse than it was before so then finally chuck. We've reached the end of the backstory nineteen eleven the postmaster general. The new one said from now on for from to infinity and beyond the United States Postal Service will hand over letters to Santa ended any charity. That wants them which is great but in New York. No one stepped up for two years and by the time. Nineteen thirteen roller out. It seemed that there wouldn't be a Santa again to fulfill these children's wish is in their letters to Santa in New York City. Yes that's right and it was all over the papers bure's Headlines like mailmen disowned Santa and Santa clauses tardy saint took over the streets and on December eighth of I guess one thousand nine hundred thirteen Edward Morgan who is The New York City's postmaster who also had more important fish to fry right He you got a letter from a guy who has a customs. Broker named John Duval Glut ca junior and he said let me run. This thing handed over to me and Morgan said Great. He did just get off my plate. I'm really happy to not have to deal. With this. GLUCK had no kids. He was not married And the story was was was that he was a kind hearted man he wanted to do something with his life. Right and this he saw this as an entree into that world. He also had some some pretty impressive passive credentials for somebody who steps up and says I'll I'll handle the Santa Business for the post office from now on. He said that he was a special representative of newspapers. A famous tariff expert investigator in a member of the secret service. None of those things were true. Yeah I mean the name of this article that you found was the con and man who saved Christmas. Yeah that was from history extra so that should tell you kind of where this was headed. Yeah this guy was lying to begin with and the story just gets even more interesting thing. Should we take a break and we should all right. Let's take a break and we'll tell you about gluck.

"Anything. If you've heard the rumors corrupting and Christmas morning Oh my God. This is anything else. We could become a very sexual. It was Kurt Russell. That did it. It was we didn't even talk about Alec Baldwin. Okay well then he's he's Superhero. He's the great really obstacles. He is Russian isn't he. Did they specify that he's Russian or is it just. It's just the accents. I think he's got a naughty and nice tattoos his people at home. Who Don't know what this is Ross Guardians Animated Film. It's actually technically an Easter film. It looks like a Christmas film because they're snow. But you've got Jack Frost at Easter Bunny. PIPO Jackman The tooth fairy playboy was Fisher or all of Virginia terrifying body of coal rightly. Yeah Columbine I'm of him. WHO's this way? Peter Ramsey who corrected Spiderman into the spider. I absolutely beautiful film It looks amazing. It's a good story. Didn't really make much mark. But he's a he's a really odd santer idea. Remember him he's yeah he's these big booming. Yeah he's like a bouncer but in very enjoyable. Oh okay you know what guys. I'M GONNA make some changes to my to do that. I'm the chair totally fine totally fine. Michelle Monaghan you're not Santa. Be Gone Number ten anyway so it doesn't really matter Rights not gives. I'm I'M GONNA I'm GonNa include Alec Baldwin and my top ten convinced me an se whether it makes any difference to how this all shapes up because what we're going to do now is going to pretend to put her top ten lists together when ash if it sent to me some of you mere minutes ago and I'm put together and we're GONNA put together the overall empirical top ten. So Oh as I always end the magazine but usually get to in the podcast and of squabbling. Let's vote okay. So we put our heads together. We've come up up with the empirical Santa Claus Top ten. Everyone here is in tenterhooks. They can't wait to hear this turns out here. We go so what I will. Jose is at in overall seventeen. Maybe eighteen different characters were voted for for eighteen. Different characters voted for By all four of us so the people who didn't make the top ten include their exports. Santen Dan ACKROYD Royden trading places. I did vote for him. But the shutdown heyhoe fine gizmo commotion doing None Chuck Santa from Jingle all the way if I if if I had to specify one of the evil gang. There's one who's gotten jerks. I'll have a major problem. You need to be weaned off this movie movie Jim Broadbent but in Arthur Christmas. I think no gets onto centre. He's really cute in that movie. He's adorable I mean. The film is fine but he's really sweet. I've seen it and I do not remember second of reviewed it definitely went to watch it. Yeah and then we had a number of people who were very close to the top down which means a number. A couple of people voted for them. Paul Giamati inbred applause couple. People voted for him. James COSMO In the land which is helping people food for him. Jeff Gillan Christmas Christmas story remind me of of who he was presumably. He's the he's the mall. Santa Worst Santa Claus that could be It's a really the old saying that He's he just doesn't want to be the store Santa Claus and they're just they marched up to him. Anybody talks usually crime and they get pushed down a slight radio really all very enjoyable. All right so if you haven't seen a Christmas story because it's not really well no in in the UK. It is the Christmas movie for a generation of which one is the number of I nine hundred ninety nine thousand nine hundred lip nicky. Romero remember there was like a sequel or something with. Don't ignore that one just just a Christmas story just Christmas. And it's it's weird really really weird and charming. It's a it's written set in the forties or thirty six So it's really nostalgic even when it was made and And it it's it's absolutely absolutely hilarious. Says Massive in America Hugh most people in Britain haven't heard of it. If you go to America markups particularly New York Christmas and It's everywhere they have like posters up and they have baubles of it and they have lag lumps. which is the thing in the movie that you can get things on his and also when you've seen like so many things in American sitcoms make sense all these jokes that previously went completely elite past you suddenly make sense any excuse to rewatch friends? Jones's they can catch the first twenty five times around and I'm I'm all for it. Remember years ago doing a the best movies of all time thing empire and Talking to I was getting the names the roaming around Parker and trey stone or the other way around. Yes right good And they didn't. I know I'm glad I'm not alone and A Nice set of Christmas story is is one of the best films of all time and time a gentleman. You never heard of it right and they found this unfathomable but people hadn't just it's not a thing in Britain's would you mean like it's it's the the first thing we watch. The Christmas comes around but they hadn't heard of evils and horses so no jokes on them right time now for the top ten here we go from number ten ten all the way down to number one. That's how it works number ten Tim Allen he made it the skin of his beard. The Santa Claus One one two and three. That's it there's more hasn't afflicted anymore than anyone now. I get so high up the list. The if you shout at me probably full off the list and Diet. That's all right number nine. Oh really yes it's Richard really blitz birthing center show in the foul Mouth Center Very Harlan Kumar Three d Christmas and I think honesty just given the fact. He's played this car to so many times. He deserves to be in his list. And as the best iteration this best rigid really iteration of the character. So I'm all for it Number Eight Center from the nightmare before Christmas Santa Claus. Yeah I like him in that. Because he's he's he's useless. Basically as if the role role of Santa clauses like royalty where you don't have to be qualified for you just yes Political yeah. He's just completely useless that everything night. Enjoy that about him. He's just this position that he's been assigned not qualified for him instead of it doesn't it gets everything wrong. Actual Father Christmas does well. He doesn't he doesn't know the rules of Halloween town. He's all like I'm discombobulated. Yup Making excuses for Santa Claus is on Jack's Kellington being censored because even though he gets it really really wrong he goes into it with the Joy of Christmas having just discovered the joy of Christmas and does his best to bring that joy two of the people and that felt quite like to me well. I think you're disqualified because he's not Santa Claus Not Sandy claws and that's important distinction. What's this what's this So He's voiced by Edward Ivory and we think the singing voice. This is donny. Osmond Danica is definitely Killington. Okay Oh exciting number seven Alec Baldwin Rouse the audience rise of the Guardians. Correct number. Six it's a Santa Claus from miracle on thirty Fourth Street. But which one is it. which which one is Edmund Gwenn? Trust us to the Brenner halfway down. Low Brow also correct it is it is.

"Really work for me. it's more about patch the L. Flint is about this lovely warm wrinkly wrinkly Santa Claus played by David Huddleston. Yeah I think the first the opening of the movie with this sort of childless couple. I kindly going Ryan and giving people presents and then they die in a snowstorm or or or sort of brought into B. Sunset Mrs Claus. That is all brilliant. And you're just completely transfixed if you're like me and you're like this this is this is how it happened. Here is the documentary waiting for and And then and so that will make total sense to me when he explains what he does to the. You know the lady in the trump kids He that all makes sense to me. Well that's obviously how this works. Is the thing that that does you know work a lot. But but yeah this whole kind of corporate espionage or corporate malfeasance story with With patch and John Lewis go is great though. Here's great both great mhm but it's just a little bit like why are we. Why are we hanging with these people do what you recommend? Eighty mid mid to late eighty eighty six eighty seven eighty five eighty five. Okay so if I would have been about seven or eight when I saw that on video cinema did you huge experience for me. I had the novelization I was I was all I was all in relief. It came out the year after supergirl two years to superman three so is kind of in that sort of belt tightening period for this all kinds which maybe it doesn't have to defend razzle-dazzle Huddleston Soga. He's Toronto so thoroughly decent and Judy Cornwell a great actress. Judy cornwell plays his wife as well Mississippi so good as well. And he's he he for me is exactly what you're saying with the rich dot number Santa Claus in thirty Fourth Street. He's everything that I think when I think of Santa Claus Big Jolly fat man. Big White Beard lovely laugh and a really really kind hind heart. And that's that's even though. I suspect it's a movie that if I were to go back and revisited. The scale is quickly I saw for a couple of years ago. The film is rubbish. He's still terrific. He is the absolute. He's he's the benchmark for maybe Santa Claus. There isn't a better on on him. He was a narrow number. Two for me behind. ATTENBOROUGH ARENA ASTHMA. Yes Bruce Number Tale Mind uh-huh Ben being very quiet about this movie for very good reason. I've never seen. Oh I've never seen it. The only bit of is the amazing. John Lithgow moment with Chris. twos honesty was enough for me. That was amazing. I didn't DVD okay. We're we'RE GONNA have a party you're GONNA WE'RE GONNA watch it but I don't think it will work for you in the way that you so jingle away and that is now the magic of Christmas special way we'll sort when we were kind of yes exactly like two dot film to me will forever be Christmas. I think watching thing it now for if I watched it for the first time now it would just be some rubbish. Oil would not watch it now. If I was doing a Christmas movie Thong I would stick with the Paddington ahead of Natalia. My helping of Christmas spirit of wouldn't necessarily go to Santa Claus movie but but he is Great. David Huddleston is legit great and I forgot. Ask a question Russian about the miracle on thirty four. Street's GonNa ask it now is he real is he. The Real Santa Claus answer that. Yes you think percents okay all right. I'm how else do you explain the house this morning with the baby brother okay. I think he's a deranged fantasists with a possible dangerous paranoid schizophrenic delusions. But Anyway we'll the is you know in God we trust is written on the money In so Ergo you're on her irs. Mike doesn't explain what she gets into fishing expedition. The poison tree. Okay all right. Let's move on. We've got a couple of Los Angeles to discuss. One is in the Alpha mentioned Elf. Edward Asner Asner. I really liked the sensor and partly because I really like l. but also because I think he is a sort of classic unbelievable sensor in again again he's not jaded but he is just very efficient at what he does and I like the mix of the old school and the sort of technology and the fact that he really understands the technology behind behind the Sleigh am. I just think he's like warm enough and kindly enough well also feeling a little bit really because he's not like Super Smiley all the time but he's also a Ah Dick. He's quite weary. Yeah Nana bad way like not been doing a long talk with the right to be wary. I'm just describing him as wear is. There's no pejorative but yeah it's that. Yeah Yeah exactly. He's He has that gives them the edge of realness. I think you're talking about quite like an Ed Asner. I don't know something about him just saying they're doing nothing is instantly funny and charming like he doesn't really have to try as you grow for Santa than I rem- recall call. He's Pretty Gruff Islamophobic. said all right so we let me like him. I think I interviewed him on that Elf. Junkin I can't remember. Yeah I've been awesome. That was pre up of course but HEO All right one more the Santa shaped elephant in the room. which is Billy Bob Thornton in bad Santa? He ain't Santer that's for damn sure. Yeah he he made number five on my list but he wasn't higher because he's very funny but he's not Santa. Okay is that because of the lack of Santa qualities in him because he he's literally legit not. Yeah I mean. He's legit not Santa he does have you know some of the trappings thereof in that. He does ultimately help people albeit mostly mostly by accident. And there's like there's a little bit of Christmas Spirit and redemption and they're like really hard for it. Maybe Willie Willie Lumpkin is to is no not really lumpkin was his name he is Willie is well. He is really remember. His name seconds are in a second name. But Yeah Christmas Willie from Billy Bob Thornton Lord but enough anything. If you've heard the rumors corrupting and Christmas morning Oh my God. This is.
