                      So, who is this Santa Rodger person?

I am Rodger Tripp. Happily Married for 48
 years. We have three children, one grandchild and two cats. We have lived in Tallahassee for 44 years.


I graduated from Florida State University with Degrees in
Child Development and Family Relations

Early Childhood Education
Music Education

I taught preschool and was a preschool director for 13 years.  For the last 33 years I have been Educationally Entertaining children in preschools. I also have entertained in assisted living and memory care facilities for 33 years. 

As "Santa Tallahassee or Santa Claus Tallahassee," I will always be in character. I will continue to educate myself in the
traditions of Christmas, so I can bring Christmas cheer and love to all people I meet in my journeys and travels. I will open my heart to listen to the secret dreams of both children and adults. I will never promise a gift to a child as I know the only gift 
I can give, as "Santa," is me. I will always do my best to pass on the love and joy of the Christmas Holiday season. I will always fulfill the 
wishes of children and adults as to their dreams, wishes and beliefs about "Santa" and Christmas.

Today, Children see "Santa" everywhere. How can he be in so many places at one time?  From early November up until Christmas Eve many parents tell children "Santa" needs lots of helpers.

Are you the real "Santa?"

This is a question all "Santas" hear. Some Santas say, "Yes, I am the real Santa." I answer in many different ways. Such as, "I looked real this morning when I was looking in the mirror and brushing my teeth." I also tell them the "Real Santa" will not tell you he is the "Real Santa," you have to decide.

"Yeah, but... how will I know?"

You will know the "Real Santa" by the feelings in your heart.

After All....."Santa" lives in the Hearts of Many.


Ho Ho Hooooo...On Dasher, on Dancer, On Prancer and Vixen, On Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen and...... On Rudolph.....Dash Away, Dash Away, Dash Away All!!


           Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night!!
