Yes Virginia, there is a Santa shortage this season.
The founder of the Lone Star Santas, the largest regional Santa Claus organization in the world, says it’s a simple supply and demand issue. He says they’ve lost several hundred of the older Santas due to COVID and many have retired fearing the pandemic.
HireSanta.com has seen a 121-percent increase in people seeking Santas or Mrs. Clauses this year, compared with two years ago.
So, if you know someone who looks like the Jolly Old Elf himself and they need a job….someone’s hiring!
