Santa Scott, whose real name is Scott Diethorne says he started playing Santa when his daughter was born 28 years ago. "We didn't think she was going to be home for Christmas, so my mom made my first Santa suit for us," he said. "I dressed up and went to the hospital to see her and the next year is when it took off. The hospital called me and it just took off from there.
When asked how he feels about being a out of the ordinary type of Santa, Diethorne laughs. "Nowadays, 90 percent of people out there have some kind of tattoos," he said.
