hey dg...it's never too late for santa...and so many i can think of not on this list, including whoopi goldberg...austin pendelton...richard karn...charles durning...douglas seale...willie nelson...etc...

can't say off hand who exactly is my favorite...of course, ed gwenn from the classic 'miracle on 34th street' was superb, and i love ed asner, but he has been santa so many times, it almost becomes a little too obvious to have him play the jolly red one again, yet alone vote for him...

and seriously...when it comes to holiday cheer...ya' can't go wrong with willie...

Most are added but I couldn't find Willie Nelson's movie. I think I had finished the list strong with definately two or three who weren't portraying Santa but definately two of them were passing out gifts at the end of their very famous movie.

dgranger,

Christmas Day is the first day of Christmas.
Boxing Day (December 26th) is the second day of Christmas.
Day prior to Epiphany (January 6th) is the twelfth day of Christmas.

So, the next 12 days are still considered Christmas season by many people.

Edmund Gwenn is may favorite actor to play Santa.

Oh thank you. That means I still got time. I definately had to put Crosby and Kaye because they were in the Santa suits and were passing out Christmas presents.

Douglas Seale in 'Ernest Saves Christmas'. The film is mostly terrible, but Seale is just perfect and lovable as Santa. Just the sweetest old man, who's been Santa for so many seasons because he loves it so much, and even manages to get a cell full of dangerous criminals singing carols.

My Santa is Mexican actor José Elías Moreno, who played the character in the classic film and unfairly part of the bottom 100 Santa Claus (1959)

I used to see that movie year after year as a kid on christmas morning, and is my earlier and dearest reference to Santa Claus. If you add it I'll vote it.

Pencho, it is a bit late. It is already a live poll. I guess I can axe Ed Wynn (no votes) and ask for a repush.

While there are a lot of mighty fine actors in this poll, Edmund Gwenn is the finest actor to have ever played Santa Claus. An actor at his best can make viewers actually believe they are the part they are playing, and his performance was the only one that made me believe he actually was Santa Claus. Plus I'm a little biased as the original Miracle on 34th Street is my favorite Christmas movie of all times.
