Where Are They Now: Kriss KringleFriday, December 22, 2006 | 11:32 AM
Kringle was also well-known for his podium speeches—which were usually delivered in the kids’ department at the local mall—as he thanked his team of reindeer and his wife, known only as Mrs. Claus. Unfortunately, it was difficult to hang goggles around his neck due to his big white beard, but Kringle always did a great job delivering his sponsors’ products. And even the Indy 500 winner pales in comparison to Kringle’s milk-drinking skills!
Kringle is off the racing circuit now, as he focuses exclusively on working with kids every Christmas night. Forget Anaheim. For Kringle, his whole life is about December 25. Merry Christmas!
