Multiple Santa's?


Recommended Posts

I can see multiple snowmen, multiple soldiers, multiple elves, but I don't know what to think of multiple Santa's or Mrs. Clause's. With my display I always figured that there's only 1 Santa and 1 Mrs. Clause and it may look funny with multiples. What do you all think of multiple Santa's/Mrs. Clause's in a display??

I'm more in line with the original post.  I only have 1 Santa (in sleigh with reindeer) and Mrs in my front yard, as I treat the whole front yard as one large scene. 

 

In the back yard I do have multiple santas, one of each type of extra Santa blowmold I have (Empire 4 foot mold, the 3 foot Santa face mold, Poloron santa & sleigh, etc...).  The back yard ends up being a bunch of smaller scenes each with its own Santa, or I look at the back yard as an overall theme of different types/views of Santa.  But even then I only have one of each type of Santa in the back yard, no repeats of a particular type.

Ok as long as they aren't grouped together in one area, I have one blow mold Santa but i probably won't even put him out, not sure yet. Lets say you have 5 Santas, you won't want them all grouped together, i personally think that's a little weird but everyone decorates their own way!

I usually pair each santa with a mrs. claus or snowman or elf, and set them at varying parts of the yard. Overcrowding one character can be extremely overwhelming and they wont all get seen or appreciated. So, yeah my advice is to pair your multiple santa or mrs. clause or snowman with different characters, that make sense, and avoid over crowding.

I think you shouldn't worry about it too much.  I remember someone on here who collected Santas.  I think he had an all Santa display.  (I can't remember who it was!)  There was a house that I used to go visit every year that had a Santa sleigh and 9 reindeer on all 4 sides of his house.  There was also a Mr./Mrs. Claus and a couple other Santas.

There's only one Santa, and there's only one Jesus.  So, outside, I only display one Santa and one Mrs.  I also only display one baby Jesus

 

(However, inside I have a small nativity, and several small Santa's!  Go figure.   ;) )

 

I agree with both of you, this is how I feel... When I see a display with Santa's all over it just seems like they are there just to be there, no purpose. I try to do my display as a couple different scenes.. A Nativity, frosty and family, A Choir, North Pole and a cartoon area.. I like everything to have a place and everything in its place, lol. I need my blow-mold to be standing straight, if they are crooked I have to fix them, I guess i'm a little anal sometimes, lol...

This year I'll have 5 or 6 (cant remember lol) of the dancing Santa molds that Empire & General Foam made/make.   They dance around my north pole sign and I call them pole dancers lol  I think folks should do what they want, how they want to do it. There are no rules to displaying blowmolds.   But I do see the difference in a display with blowmolds and a display of blowmolds : )   Truth is if you have a nativity and Santa, or any snowmen.  Your yard isnt one scene is it?? LOL

I only have one Santa, but I always think to myself if I would have more than one, I would try to place them, so that you don't really see them all at once. You know so wherever you stand you only see one Santa at any given time.

 

Now, in my opinin, if your going to have multiple's, this is the way it should be done...
