Welcome to the story of Jennifer Van Der Weide, affectionately known as Jenny Kringle or Mrs. Claus. While her husband may have taken on the role of Santa Claus professionally, Jennifer has her own unique journey that intertwines with the magic of Christmas.

Jennifer Van Der Weide is not your average Mrs. Claus. She is a vibrant, independent woman who found herself on a whimsical adventure when her husband decided to become a professional Santa Claus. While she may not have anticipated this turn of events initially, Jennifer eventually embraced the opportunity with open arms, bringing her own sparkle to the Christmas season.

"I wasn't sure when my husband approached me about becoming a professional Santa," Jennifer reflects. "He started to grow his beard and mustache out, and I couldn't help but feel a mix of emotions. I told him, 'I didn't marry Santa Claus.'"

Indeed, it was a surprising proposal that initially left Jennifer questioning what the future might hold. The idea of her husband embodying the iconic figure of Santa Claus full-time was something she hadn't considered before. They didn't even put Santa Claus figurines out during Christmas. Concerned that he might look like Santa all the time, Jennifer navigated her thoughts and feelings as the journey unfolded.

Jennifer's husband (aka: Santa) had set up a Christmas in July event for a minor league baseball game and he got them both Christmas baseball jerseys. At this game, there was a bunch of special needs children. These children were magically drawn to Santa and Mrs. Claus, and it just tore at Jennifer's heart. Despite all her initial reservations, Jennifer found herself drawn into the enchanting world of Christmas.  As her husband's commitment to portraying Santa Claus deepened, Jennifer discovered her own role in spreading holiday cheer to children and adults alike. They both fell in love with not only being professional Christmas performers, they fell in love with doing it together as a real couple. 

"I realized that being Mrs. Claus wasn't just about supporting my husband's endeavors," Jennifer explains. "It was about embracing the magic of Christmas and sharing that joy with others."

As Jenny Kringle, Jennifer brings warmth, kindness, and laughter wherever she goes. Whether she's assisting her husband during Santa appearances, volunteering at local events, or spreading Christmas cheer online, Jennifer's presence as Mrs. Claus is truly heartwarming.

"I've come to love being Mrs. Claus," Jennifer admits with a smile. "It's a role that allows me to connect with children and adults in a special way, especially during the holiday season."

Follow along with Jennifer Van Der Weide, aka Jenny Kringle, as she continues her heartwarming journey as Mrs. Claus. From magical moments with children to spreading joy in her community, Jennifer's story is one filled with love, laughter, and the spirit of Christmas.

My name is Mrs. Claus - Jenny Kringle to be exact. Nestled in the heart of the North Pole, I am more than a mere baker of delightful cookies. No, my friends, I am a storyteller, a baker, a reindeer trainer, and the second most famous resident at the North Pole – after my jolly husband, Santa Claus, of course!

In the wondrous land where snowflakes dance and stars twinkle, Santa and I make a dynamic duo, orchestrating the symphony of joy that is Christmas. As the Christmas Executive Officer (CEO), I weave magic into the fabric of each day, managing the North Pole's day-to-day affairs to ensure a seamless operation. It's a big responsibility, but one that fills my heart with boundless joy.

If fortune smiles upon you, you might have the chance to meet me in person! When my North Pole duties permit, I may accompany Santa to your Home Visit or Event, spreading joy and laughter wherever we go. While Santa and I are an unbeatable team, I do venture out on my own for special Mrs. Claus-only events.
