It's the most wonderful time of the year! At least for me it is. I LOVE the three month cobo containing Halloween, Thanksgiving, and then Christmas. As we rapidly approach the end of October, we know what follows. It's the same pattern every year; Halloween ends, Christmas music begins. But there's a reason for it. Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year, so you know we gotta get those Santas prepared for the mayhem.

Luckily for them, there's a school in Midland, Michigan that trains the Santas for the holiday season. Everything from how to dress properly, use Santa sign language, even how to make them sing better and make toys, this Midland school is home to 270 Santas this year, according to FOX17.

This Santa school, the Charles W. Howard Santa Claus School in Midland is known as the Harvard of Santa schools and has been training Santas all across the country for 81 years.
