Nichol has played Santa Claus at Sparkle for the last 18 years and has been Santa at the Holiday Fair for the last 22 years. Photo submitted photographed guy in town. Everyone's got a picture of Santa on the wall," Ray joked. "It's been interesting over 22 years watching these kids grow up." As children grow old enough to stop believing in Santa Claus, Ray continues to give them a dose of holiday joy with his sense of humor. "I can see when a kid doesn't believe in Santa anymore. I usually tell them that if they don't believe in Santa, they get underwear for Christmas," Ray said with a laugh. As Ray walks down the streets of the town he's lived in for decades, people who don't know him address him as Santa. "when you're out in public, wandering around dressed up with the Santa hat on, you get a lot more smiles, a lot more 'Hellos' and 'Merry Christmases,'" said Ray. "It changes the way people look at you, because you're familiar to them." Ray said he plans on being Santa every Christmas for years to come. Before the interview for this article ended, Ray offered some advice on what he has learned is the true meaning of Christmas. "Connection with the family is the biggest thing," Ray explained. "Whether you give your kids a lot of presents or not, the thought of letting them know you're there and they're in your mind is what's most important."
