Wichita, Kansas (KSNW) – Clyde Oster is ready to continue the holiday tradition, wearing a red suit, jingle bell, and freshly trimmed beard.
Oster is one of Santa’s helpers who brings Christmas cheers to Wichita, even if it looks a little different this year. “. The people they got the plexiglass does not come only to the outside. I can still waving to them and Hello, Hello, given the time to see Santa in them! But children “I will.” He said.
Oster says they’re getting creative to give something sweet, “They set it where I can still drop candy cane for them.”
While excited to cheer, many big man helpers say they prioritize safety.
“You are looking for precautions for your children, and you are looking for precautions for the people around you, especially Santa,” said Dan Hagenbuch.
Stan Russell has been one of Santa’s helpers for 25 years. He says they will do more than check more than a naughty and nice list this year. She explains if you were ill or sick.
This crew of Santa’s helpers usually says their schedule is booked throughout the holiday season. However, many events have been cancelled.
Some of Centnick’s oldest helpers have left the big event for their health. “I can’t say I’m talking about making a zoom-type Santa visit this year,” Russell said.
