Picture courtesy Mark LyndersayMy name is Glen Davis and I’ve been playing Santa Claus for 55 years.

The Davises are from Belmont. And I did everything in Belmont.

I went to Belmont Intermediate from standard one to form five. I was never bright enough to get into St Mary’s. Because I couldn’t do “simplify” – and that was always the first question in every exam! Remember that? “Simplify the following”? There was NOTHING simple about “simplify”. I could never do it. The last exam I sat where I saw “simplify” was the first question, I just hand in the paper and went Strand 9.30 [early movie showing].
