The "How Does Santa Claus Work?" Edition

For our last episode of the year, we're taking a break from our ongoing series of jobs imperiled by the election of Donald Trump for a holiday special.

Santa Ed brings presents, stories, and joy to parties each holiday season. He spoke with Jacob Brogan about how he tries to make each Christmas memorable for all of his guests and clients. He discusses his storytelling style, his tricks for making an impression as the Real Santa, and why he avoids the Mall Santa route.

Then, in a Slate Plus extra, Santa Ed tells us how he behaves when his clients want something a little bit "spicier" from Santa. Start your two-week free trial at slate.com/workingplus.
