[PHOTOS] Holiday cheer spread through our Christmas town a little early this year when not one, but over 200 Santas from the Charles W. Howard Santa Claus School filled Zehnder’s Main Dining Room to enjoy fellowship, fun and a Family Style Chicken Dinner on October 28, 2016. This celebration was the beginning of a 3-day course on the legends and facts of “Jolly ‘ol Saint Nick”. The Charles W. Howard Santa Claus School in Midland is a non-profit organization established in 1937 and is the longest continuously running Santa Claus School in the world. Thomas Valent is the Dean of the internationally recognized Santa School and has taught throughout the world including Australia, Greenland and England. The Santa School meets only 3 days out of the year but provides education beyond a red suit and shiny white beard. It expands on the traditions and history of Santa Claus and provides the necessary resources to define and improve the individual presentations of Santa Claus. Some activities include Santa Sign Language, Reindeer Habits, Santa Flights, Proper Dress and Makeup, a highlight of the newest toys on the market and much more!
Celebrate the holiday spirit in Frankenmuth this year and visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus at Zehnder’s Restaurant and Zehnder’s Splash Village. Click here for Santa’s upcoming schedule.
