Santa Claus Inc -- an outsource story

Updated on December 2, 2011

Season's Greetings to One and All

Hello my Hubfriends, and the best of this holiday season to you.

I won't try to be politically correct (that was last year's greeting, linked to the right) and I'll come right out and say a very, Merry Christmas to all who celebrate the day, and best wishes to all those who follow other beliefs.

May you all have a joyous and prosperous New Year, as well.

I hope you enjoy my small gift of the video below, and thank you to my faithful video tutor (you know who you are) who sat at my shoulder and helped me make this as a learning project. Other videos have followed, but this one, the first was the most fun. Thank you.

So with no further ado, allow me to introduce Inside Santa Claus Incorporated.

The premise for the story is simple. With 6.8 billion people in this world, 2.4 billion of them children, Santa (Nick Claus) simply had to modernize. Allow his wife, Clara Claus, to walk you through the new world of Santa Claus Inc.

Well, I hope you enjoyed it.

Thanks for watching, and don't let the business end of Christmas cause you grief in the New Year, please. We all know the real meaning, and it has nothing, nothing to do with elves, gifts or Santa Claus. Let's concentrate on that.

Peace be with you.

Lynda

      The Santa claus,was created by the legal eagle which was created by the money monger.

      Merry "X"mas to the nude couple Mr. and Mrs.Claus.

      Now I know where Santa and his his "Deer" got their "red nose"

      P.S. Keep on Hubbing and spreading holiday cheer!

      Hi Mentalist Acer: Glad to know you're above the flock and not being driven into the malls.

      Hi drbj: Why thanks. But no, I don't think I'll go into the video business. It all started with my publicist saying I simply must have a video to promote my book. Didn't want to pay the exorbitant fees quoted me, so learned to do it myself. This one was the trainer. Glad you liked it.

      Thanks Quilligrapher.

      Hi resspenser, And I thought that such a lovely shot. Still loving, wrinkled butts and all. We should all be so lucky.

      Hi itakins: Some worlds need to be shattered. Reality sucks. Thanks so much.

      Hi Mr. Happy: Thanks for the compliments.

      Thanks everyone. Lynda

      What a marvelous video, Lynda. And that was a first effort? Unbelievable. Want a new business idea? Start training others to do exceptional videos like that one. Thank you for this unique Christmas card. Merry Christmas and Happy Healthy New Year to you and Jim.
