I would like to take this opportunity to recognize one of the greatest, and least thanked, heroes of the holiday season. Santa Claus is the most universally known figure in the world. But who is really the force behind the North Pole? Who buys that famous red suit and makes sure Santa doesn’t forget anything on his trip around the world? Who do we not sing about at Christmas? Why, the forgotten Mrs. Claus, of course!

The Forgotten First Lady of Christmas

Mrs. Claus is completely neglected every holiday season. She might show up as a matching pepper to Santa’s salt shaker. You see her waving silently in holiday parades. But this is just a hollow representation of who she really is. We know Santa Claus’s life story, but I for one have never even heard Mrs. Claus’s first name.

A Testament to the Modern Women

Mrs. Claus (I’m forced to be formal as I still don’t know her first name) is an icon of modern feminism. She is not bogged down by the modern trends of trying to look twenty forever. She doesn’t follow flashy trends with her hairstyle or clothing. She is dependable and classic – you won’t see her gracing the cover of a tabloid with a man half of her age.

Mrs. Claus doesn’t try to dress or act younger than she is. She doesn’t shop in the juniors’ department. She embraces her full figure and knows that a warm and inviting personality is more important than rock hard abs and a tight backside. Her clothing selection doesn’t contain much variety, but the classic combination of red and white is truly timeless. And when you live in one of the coldest regions of the world, fur trimmed clothing just makes sense.

The Backbone of Christmas

Like many women, Mrs. Claus is the backbone of her household. It just so happens that her household defines much of the entire holiday season. I’m reasonably sure she is single-handedly responsible for getting Santa out the door on time to deliver gifts to the children of the world. She probably also packs him healthy snacks to help offset all of those cookies he eats.

Any woman tough enough to live in the company of almost all men at the top of the world is no shrinking violet. Mrs. Claus is one tough lady. She keeps the elves focused on toy making while keeping the job merry and bright. Her special holiday treats liven up the production floor, and I imagine she’s tried out a few EZ Bake ovens to be sure they were up to snuff before they were loaded in the sleigh.

I can just see her on Christmas Eve. Santa has a list and he checks it twice, but who do you think wrote all those names down in the first place? Mrs. Claus is one of those women who manages to be everywhere at once. She’s checking that the sleigh is packed properly while sewing on a missing button on Santa’s coat. She’s finding Santa’s hat while putting his trail mix in a Ziploc bag. She’s waving him off while organizing the annual Christmas Day celebration for his return.

Mrs. Claus Day

On behalf of Mrs. Claus and other hard-working women everywhere who are not recognized for their efforts, I propose that December 26 officially be named Mrs. Claus Day. On December 26, the day following Christmas, Mrs. Claus can take the day off to enjoy the great after Christmas sales while her husband, Santa Claus, cleans up the party she so lovingly arranged for him following his Christmas Eve trip to all the world’s children. She does so much for all of us, this is the least we can do for her. Happy Mrs. Claus Day!

absolutely great story i've read here at TDP . I laughed, was inspired,and touched by a person who does need a well deserved rest. I can also think of 1 other figure who does a lot like Mrs Claus it's the working mom's out there (especially the secretary of lawyers). but i'd like to thank for one of the best read articles here on TDP- thank you

I think that this article is awesome.

We totally shouldnt forget her.

She IS a role model to all of us.

I agree with the "She is dependable and classic – you won’t see her gracing the cover of a tabloid with a man half of her age."

Its so true!

Congrats on the awesome article!
