One of the best-known accounts of Santa Claus is Clement Moore’s poem The Night Before Christmas. Legend has it that Mr. Moore penned his celebrated poem for his family on Christmas Eve 1822. Today, nearly 200 years later, The Night Before Christmas remains the most-published, most-read, and most-memorized piece of Christmas literature. The poem tells us a great deal about how courteous and hardworking Santa Claus is and the characteristics that make him so beloved by children across the globe.
You know who else is courteous and hardworking? Mr. Rooter Plumbing. With Christmas right around the corner, let’s see just how similar Jolly Old Saint Nicholas is to North America’s favorite plumber.
Santa Claus and Mr. Rooter Plumbing are Courteous
When a child sits on Santa’s lap and tells him what he wants for Christmas, Santa always delivers! He’s also cheerful and jolly as he delivers presents to each home (“His eyes – how they twinkled! His dimples – how merry!”).
Likewise, Mr. Rooter Plumbing always listens to customers’ needs and strives to meet them without compromise. He’s also cheerful in his work and treats customers respectfully during house calls.
Santa Claus and Mr. Rooter Plumbing are Punctual
Have you ever heard of children waking up on Christmas morning to discover that Santa Claus didn’t make it in time? He’s got quite a long list of customers to get to in just one night, yet Saint Nick still manages to complete his work before dawn. Surely his success is due in part to his reindeer, who fly “more rapid than eagles.”
Mr. Rooter Plumbing is also known for making it to every appointment on time. He drives safely and obeys traffic laws, but because he respects every customer, Mr. Rooter Plumbing always leaves with plenty of time to arrive when he says he will.
Santa Claus and Mr. Rooter Plumbing Get the Job Done Right
When it comes to delivering presents, Santa doesn’t mess around. In The Night Before Christmas, “He spoke not a word but went straight to his work,” filling all the stockings carefully before calling the job complete.
Mr. Rooter Plumbing also gets the job done right. Thorough training and years of experience make Mr. Rooter Plumbing the best plumber to perform drain cleaning services and other plumbing repairs.
Santa Claus and Mr. Rooter Plumbing Take Pride in Their Appearance
Saint Nick would never leave the North Pole without looking his very best. He’s famous for being “dressed all in fur from his head to his foot” in the traditional red and white we all love.
Mr. Rooter Plumbing also takes pride in his appearance. He’s clean-cut and wears a professional uniform with his shirt tucked in to avoid the dreaded plumber’s crack.
Santa Claus and Mr. Rooter Plumbing are Clean
Being Santa Claus has its occupational hazards. Since he enters homes through the chimney, it’s no wonder “his clothes [become] tarnished with ashes and soot.” Still, he never leaves dirty footprints on the rug or other signs he’s been there – except for the presents under the tree and in those “stocking [all] hung by the chimney with care.”
Mr. Rooter Plumbing is the same. His work may dirty him up a bit, but he always lays down floor mats and wears shoe covers to prevent tracking dirt in from outside. Plus, in addition to providing dependable drain cleaning services, Mr. Rooter Plumbing strives to leave the work area even cleaner than he found it.
