The holiday season had just wrapped up…or maybe unwrapped. Before we say good bye completely to 2016, let’s give a little nod to our winners of the Santa/ Mrs. Claus contest.
Behind every good man is a great woman and Santa is no different; which brings us to the judges pick Becky McDonald as Mrs. Claus. We felt it was a fair shake to share the love with Mrs. Claus; after all, we’re pretty sure she keeps the ship running smoothly while Santa is busy in the workshop. Here is what Becky had to say about the winning the contest and how she got going in the role.
Dear Clown Antics,
Thank you so much for your recognition of my Mrs. Claus.
I am fairly new at Mrs. Claus, this being my second season. I had an opportunity to help kick off a new story time with Mrs. Claus at the Turtleback zoo in New Jersey last year. I was thrilled, the program had wonderful feedback and I had the opportunity to do it again this year. I have always wanted to embrace this character and was thrilled with the opportunity. I was going for a more modern look and was happy with the results. Aside from story time, I also do meet and greets during the holiday season, sometimes with Santa. Once again, thank you!
We would like to thank you Becky for entering the contest and letting us share with our readers a little about your journey. Wishing you many more years of performing.
Of course the Santa contest is not complete without having a Santa winner. Robert Canon one the hearts and votes of our readers and took the prize for number one Santa. Here is what Robert had to share.
Wow, what a wonderful journey into the world of Santa! Makes me want to hop on a reindeer and go see Robbie in person. How cool is it that his father was also a magician and Santa which inspired Robbie to follow in his foot steps. Thank you for being part of the contest and sharing your wonderful story.
Congratulations to our winners and thank you to all of the contestants and great folks who voted for their favorites. Keep your eyes open for the next fun Clown Antics contest, maybe we’ll se your photo next!
