Christmas craft fair: first time Santa

Christmas craft fair: first time Santa for Vanderhoof cross-country Santa

Vanderhoof resident Chris Sutton dons the Santa suit for the first time at the annual Christmas craft fair in W. L. McLeod Elementary on Nov. 21.

Approaching his third year in Vanderhoof, Chris Sutton becomes Santa for the first time at the annual Christmas craft fair in W. L. McLeod Elementary on Nov. 21.

Booming “ho, ho, ho” and posing for pictures with kids on his knee, Sutton finds his first experience as the bearded, iconic festive present-giver fun, he said.

Including a red suit, a Christmas hat, and a giant white beard, Sutton added extra padding as the Santa belly, to compensate for the cross-country’s lean build.
