We recently had the pleasure of speaking with Santa about his Halloween exploits, and his plans for the Christmas holiday. Santa Claus, his family, and his elves do celebrate Halloween. Santa acknowledges the magical forces of good marshaling the innocent magic of children trick o treating to counter the forces of evil that use the spirit of Halloween for nefarious purposes. Christmas on the other hand is the center of goodness for the year as the ultimate marshaling of good magic comes from the worldwide gift giving to strengthen the spirit of Christmas which is in essence the soul of Santa Claus himself. The spirit of Halloween belongs to the soul of the mysterious half-angel half-demon leader of Halloween. The very figure who presided as judge centuries ago when Santa was charged with violating the Supernatural Secrecy Pact. Unfortunately the Judge’s identity was cloaked so Santa has no clue who he is.
As usual Santa decorated his Stately manor, and all of his North Pole Village for Halloween after the Autumn Equinox. Halloween night is a wintery scene with pine trees strung with orange pumpkin lights, and other decorations along with lit Jack-O-Lanterns strewn about. Santa tends to stick with the non-evil decor of a non-gruesome nature so you won’t see anything paying homage to graveyards, death, zombies, vampires, werewolves, etc. It’s mainly G rated fun. There is a haunted house but it’s meant only to lightly scare kids who are lucky enough to be invited to the North Pole for Halloween. Trick O Treating in North Pole Village is said to be quite a treat indeed. Happy children merrily frolic about the shops, and elves homes to receive candy, and small gifts. The evening culminates at the Claus Manor Halloween Costume Ball. A party for adults, and kids involved in the world of the supernatural. This is their reward for a job well done fighting the forces of evil. Of course the ultimate honor is to be invited for Christmas as Santa’s house. An honor we at Mystic Investigations partook of last Christmas 2011.
On Halloween morning during the witching hour to the brink of dawn we see the most heinous horrors in general while the night of trick o treating is less infested with evil. Santa by no means sat at home eating candy corn during that time of tumultuous terror during the evil hours of 12:00 AM to sunrise. And yes he loves candy corn. It’s his sixth most favorite candy. Often he deals with his evil brother, The Anti-Claus, and his nefarious Halloween plots. Usually an attempt to take over Halloween, and transform it into a 100% vessel of evil on this Earth. However Santa magically jailed him during the 2011 Christmas season after one of his preposterous plots went too far. This wasn’t easy since he, and his twin brother are just about evenly matched in strength, and magical powers. In fact he needed a magical assist from the team here at Mystic Investigations. His rotten sibling currently exists in an inter-dimensional prison so he’s out of the picture for now. Despite this there was still much evil afoot in the world salivating at the prospects for Halloween.
