Tom Brokaw said it best about the author: This Santa "can only be described as the real thing." With warmth, humor, and wonder, Ed Butchart shares his stories as a professional Santa Claus in The Red Suit Diaries. Deftly combining his Santa persona with his passion for God, Butchart reveals himself as a once-hardened Marine who found Jesus and began to serve others in unusual ways. Listeners will be enthralled by The Red Suit Diaries - from Santa's day job refurbishing medical equipment for the disabled, to the sweetest of secrets whispered in Santa's ear and written in letters, to the story of how he unknowingly found "Mrs. Claus." Woven throughout is a faith and a joy of giving that energizes Butchart's mission to spread love to all kinds of children and adults.
