The article starts with the original "Sack
of Santa" from the mind of Eugene Poinc shortly before his
death. It's a bizarre illusion of a monstrous stalking Santa
Claus. Unfortunately, it will probably never again be performed
the way Poinc imagined it, because the original ingredients are
so difficult to find these days. So I have updated it, and
removed the monstrous qualities Poinc attributed to Santa to an
even more bizarre figure, already legendary for being brought to
life by magic, Frosty The Zombie!
You don't have to play up the bizarre aspects of
this, if you just want a typical holiday kiddie illusion that is
easy to make and present. You COULD just bring a cartoonish
Frosty to life with your magic hat and dance with him to the
familiar song. But if you have a touch of the bizarre in you, try
Eugene Poinc's bizarre version and you'll never look at snowmen
the same way again!
