383010 03: A young child grabs the finger of Santa Claus, played by John Slocum, as she has her photograph taken December 7, 2000 at the Sunland Park Mall in El Paso, TX. John has been playing the pot-bellied Santa for the past 5 years. The average Santa Claus is supposed to weigh about 230 pounds, however extra padding can be provided and fake beards may be worn for clean shaven gentlemen such as John.

For the last 20 plus years Scott Diethorne has worked as a Pennsylvania town’s favorite Santa Claus. 

Scott Diethorne is known as the tattooed Santa and has a pretty big fallowing so when the mall told him to tone it down, not show his tattoos or flip kids on his shoulders, people started to protest.

Santa Scott, will take pictures with kids on his shoulder or even holding a few of his snakes. Some of Santa Scott’s fans have made it clear that they love him and want the mall to allow him to go back to his old ways!
