Meet Timber, the beginning story. He was not like most trolls. Then again, neither were his parents. They taught him right from wrong and how to take of the forest—for Timber was a forest troll.
When he was born, his parents, Bark and Mossy, named him Timber. After all, he was a forest troll. They did not realize his name would become a metaphor for him falling over.
As a young troll, Timber was bullied. He knew it was wrong to be mean and to bully others. He knew it was right to be kind to everyone, even trolls, no matter how different they may be.
Timber the Forest Troll
Rory was born in South Dakota and raised in a home where Christmas was always a magical time. His parents had five children and struggled to make ends meet, yet they turned that time of the year into something their children would never forget; a time of precious moments and memories.
Everything was Christmas, from the festive music and movies to donning ugly sweaters and baking Christmas cookies. Every year they decorated a small tree making it look like it belonged in the White House. Even in the most challenging times, cookies and milk were placed out, and Santa never failed to fill stockings and leave a special gift. His parents made everything about Christmas magical.
Most importantly, they instilled in their children's hearts the true meaning of Christmas and the reason for the season; "peace on earth and goodwill toward men."
After 30 years as Santa, Rory carries that Christmas magic with him everywhere he goes and in everything he does.
