I did for the first time this past weekend. MRS runs an animal shelter and the local PetSmart allows area shelters to take turns running the "Pet Pictures with Santa" booth on weekends. I posed for pictures with dogs and cats ranging from an Irish Wolfhound to six week old Dachshund puppies. It really was a lot of fun, especially given that I was helping my wife's shelter and our mutual love of animals.

I have done it many times. I am 6'6" and about 285 lbs, so I fit the mold nicely...

When I was in University, we used to run a Christmas party for Big Brothers/Big Sisters and I was Santa for all the kids there. I posed for pictures and gave out presents.

I have also done it at both the kids and adult Christmas parties for work. I stopped doing the kids party when my kids started attending. (hard to explain that one...)

I stopped doing the adult one after the boss's wife sat on my lap one year. That's the kind of thing I don't need at the office...

Sophomore year in college, I was a very drunken and dirty old Santa Claus at my fraternity's Xmas party. I came through the door with a bag of goodies in one hand and a bottle of cheap scotch in the other and proclaimed "Merry (takes big swig of scotch) Fucking Christmas !!!" The rental place probably threw out the suit when I was done - I would have.

Never been Santa, but I was the "elf" at last year's Secret Santa party.

The elf gets the drunkest, as he has to drink with every gift that's opened.

I've never been Santa. No one wants a skinny, brown-skinned Santa for some reason. I have been an elf a few times, but, alas, there's no glory in it.

I was Santa for a Christmas play in 4th grade in 1978. Does that count?

Junior year of high school, I found an old Santa costume in the storage room at work (I worked at a Hallmark store from freshman year of high school until freshman year of college). I decided to wear it for the day. Unfortunately, the beard (very old beard with an elastic band to hold it around my head) was yellow and brown around the mouth. So I was more of a youthful, clean-shaven Santa Claus. I didn't know where that beard had been, so I wasn't putting it NEAR my lips.

Thinking back, I basically wore it so the girls at work would laugh. I was the only guy there. I was quite a charmer back then (what the hell happened?).

Never been Santa but I probably could be now (6'4 350lbs) but I did play Frosty the Snowman and a snowflake in school plays.

Yes, years ago at a senior center I worked at. After a few minutes of it, I lost all motivation and my "Ho Ho Ho's" were pretty pathetic.

A couple of times at the nursing home I used to work at. It was a blast!

I did once when it snowed on Halloween and I switched from my Terminator costumer to Santa Claus and handed out candy at my parent's place. We made a couple snow ghosts on either side of the door and I've got a photo of me in the costume standing in front of the house with the giant pumpkin hanging from the 2nd floor over the doorframe.
