Event Details

 knew Santa Claus. The real one. I could visit him anytime I wanted, all year round, but my kids never got to know Santa. They just had photos taken in the mall a different guy in a beard every year. In 2010, I saw a Santa visiting with kids, really visiting the way my Santa had. At that moment, I realized what we lose when we stop believing. And I was obsessed with finding out how this Santa had revived the magic I knew as a child. So I began a journey to find out how the mannerisms of a Santa from 50 years ago had been passed down through the generations. And I finally found the man who knew the answers. I discovered the man I knew as Santa, Jim Yellig, was a hero to professional Santas. The originator of being Santa as a career. He never knew that while he was bringing joy to hundreds of thousands of children in his home, he was shaping the image of Santa we have today. I entered a world that few will ever see.  A world where Santa is real.  And I met the men who keep his spirit alive. And I got to see the world through Jim Yellig's eyes, by spending a day in a theme park actually being Santa. They Wore the Red Suit will examine Santa Claus from three perspectives: The legend of Santa, the vocation of being Santa, and the Santa industry.
