    12 Knights of Christmas — Mr. and Mrs. Claus

    Knox Smith and his wife, Chris, have played Mr. and Mrs. Claus for decades at the K of C-sponsored Christmas party at St. Columban Church in Ohio.

    By Communications Staff 12/14/2019

    Knox Smith and his wife, Chris, have played Mr. and Mrs. Claus for decades at local events, including during the Knights of Columbus-sponsored Christmas party for local children at St. Columban Church in Loveland, Ohio. He committed last minute to the event due to a severe health concern. As Cincinnati.com reported, he was unconscious for days in a trauma center after passing out at his home. But his dedication to playing Santa motivated him through rehabilitation.

    It was thanks in part to the efforts of his brother Knights from St. Columban Council 13813 that Santa’s hearty “Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas” was still heard that year. Knights pulled the sleigh into view, bringing Christmas joy to the largest group of children the event has seen.

    The full story of Knox and his brother Knights’ story is featured in The Enquirer,
    part of the USA Today network. Read it
