But not this dude for sure…

Who are America’s ‘real’ Santa Clauses?
America’s first Santa Claus may have been a man accused in a federal indictment of introducing two gallons of untaxed whiskey to Arkansas “Indian Country.”
A yellowed writ, signed by the clerk of the U.S. criminal court for the Western District of Arkansas two weeks before Christmas 1882, commands that U.S. Marshals, “in the name of the President of the United States of America, apprehend the said Santa Claus and bring his body forthwith before me.”
It is the earliest document to turn up with the legal name “Santa Claus” in a recent Tampa Bay Times search of national archives and other public records.
Santa Claus was historically black in certain parts of the USA…
The name Santa Claus evolved at the turn of the nineteenth century from “Sinter Klaas,” a Dutch nickname for Saint Nicholas, the popular patron of sailors, children and pawnbrokers. Legend has it that he rescued young maidens from prostitution by paying their dowries in gold coins.
While surely thousands of humans have since portrayed the magical reindeer tamer, only a handful of Americans appear to have been named Santa Claus legally.
It’s not clear what happened to that Santa Claus from 1882. The entire description provided in the records is that he was a Black man living at Eureka Springs in Arkansas. In 1889, a Santa Claus was cited for “rebellious conduct” at the state penitentiary in Huntsville, Texas, according to a 130-year-old ledger listing convicts there.
An 1898 special census of Native Americans lists a 1-year-old member of a Zuni Pueblo family simply as “English Name: Santa Claus,” with a blank space under “Indian Name.”
Santa Claus doesn’t seem to appear again until the 1940 U.S. Census. A Santa Claus born in 1888 lived in Marshall, Missouri, in a rented home with his wife Minnie Mabel Claus, their five sons, two daughters and Santa’s brother, Earl Claus. That Santa finished the fourth grade and was working as a “sewer man” making $268 a year.
Census records are only public after 72 years, so that trail goes cold after 1940. More general Census data from 2010 shows Claus as the 8,911th most common surname in the U.S., just after Heinen and tied with Lerch and Kubiak. With 3,674 Clauses in the U.S., we can safely deduce there are fewer than that many Santa Clauses.
The question was posed in a Facebook group for off-duty retail Santas: Do any of you Santas know Santas who’ve legally changed their name to Santa?
Somewhat surprisingly, several of the Santas there deemed people who do this as “weird.” However, one took pity and suggested a call to “Frank up in Deer Park.”
This turned out to be the former Frank Pascuzzi, 63, of New York’s Long Island. Legal name since 2012: Santa Claus.
Santa Claus, formerly known as Frank Pascuzzi, poses for a photo in November 2020. He lives on Long Island, New York.
The change was partly practical, said the former Pascuzzi, who outside the Christmas season makes his living catering barbecue and designing and installing fire sprinklers.
Kids are smart. It’s hard to get them to believe when you pull up in a red van. Now he can show them his driver’s license.
Digging deeper, though, he admitted the change was personal. Santa Claus’s forearms are covered in tattoos. He used to weigh 420 pounds. He always held himself to a high standard of kindness, but commuters on the Long Island Rail Road, he said, were afraid to sit next to him years ago. Now people see him as he always saw himself.
“There’s a lot of evil garbage that goes on in everyday life,” he said. “I wanted to be better than that. By changing my hair color and name, I’m in the public eye as Santa. It’s almost impossible not to be the better person I want to be.”

Jenna Dewan Nude Photo Shoot Outtakes
As you can see, in these outtakes Jenna Dewan brazenly bares her nude tits and ass for all to see… Of course as a dancer her derriere is extremely dickable, leaving us virile MAGA Warriors to wonder why her dim-witted ex-husband Channing Tatum did not sell her off to be an anal only concubine in Middle Eastern harems instead of divorcing her.
Yes, when disposing of a wife like Jenna Dewan it is always best to try and recycle her. For one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and clearly Jenna’s tight tush could still withstand a few thrashings from the tremendous thrusts of a MAGA Warrior’s meat scud.
