Getting Ready For Next Christmas
Dear Tico Times:
Remember me? I’m the Santa you featured last year (TT, Dec. 8, 2006). I’ve been coming to Costa Rica for 10 years to pass out gifts to children.
I had my right leg removed below the knee recently. No more pain or painkillers.
I’m looking to go to Costa Rica in August or September to plan Christmas. I have a goal of 10,000 people this year.
I can show kids even Gringo Santa has problems.
