ASL: "Santa"


The sign for Santa Claus is based on his bushy white beard.  Hold a loose "CLAW" hand to your chin.  Bring it down in an arc to your chest and touch the pinkie finger side of your hand to your chest.


Are there other ways to sign Santa Claus? Yes. There are quite a few.  The one above is nice though since it is simple, it uses only one hand (which lets me hold an eggnog in the other), and is non-initialized (it doesn't use an "S" hand so people won't accuse you of using Signed English, which, apparently would make you a bad boy or girl and not get any presents).
