WEST JORDAN, Utah -- After Christmas is over what do you think Santa does the rest of the year?

Some kids in West Jordan are pretty sure he drives their school bus.  Most of the year this Santa goes by Rick Waite, a bus driver from West Jordan, who drives special needs kids home from school.

“Every once and a while they will say something like you look like Santa Claus and I'll just kind of laugh and say 'Ho ho ho! You think I look like Santa Claus. Ho Ho. You're silly. And then they kind of get this look in their eye like 'what is that?',” said Waite.

Not everyone believes he is Santa Claus, but he believes being Santa brings the Christmas spirit to kids who really need it.  Check out the video!
