Call it home schooling.
Jim took that education and ran with it, volunteering his time for groups that like giving as much as he does.
Ive never been able to put a price tag on it, Scott said.
So no one ever gave Santa any formal education, until now.
I saw it on television, Scotts wife, Mary, said.

After 52 years of playing Santa Claus, youre telling me now I have to school! Jim exclaimed while chortling.
While Jim learns, Mary intends to shop.
Some Mrs. Clauses do attend, but thats not my thing, she said.

Jim will do what hes always done: hell give the gift of Santa.
It helps me get into the Christmas spirit and I pass it on, he said.
