Kathy East thinks she has one of the most magical jobs of all - she's Mrs. Claus.
The former Wood County District Public Library children's librarian has spent her four and half years of retirement dressing up as Santa's better half.
It's a job she took on for kids and herself.
"It's special for them to see Mrs. Claus," she said. "But it's also pretty special for me."
After her husband surprised her by dressing up as Santa for a staff holiday lunch a few years ago, East went on eBay to get a costume for herself.
Ever since, the magic has stuck. East has been in the Bowling Green Holiday Parade and visits community centers around Wood County as Mrs. Claus.
One her favorite places to visit is the Wood County library.

ROSSFORD - Five applicants have filed to be interviewed tonight to fill a City Council vacancy caused by the Thanksgiving Day death of Chuck Duricek.
Those applying include Duricek's widow, Pam Domalski-Duricek, who had earlier indicated she supported Robert Densic, the next highest vote getter in the November election. Also seeking the seat are retired police chief Dennis Foy, long-time school board member Joseph "Moe' Minarcin and retired Dana Corporation president ad chief operating officer William Carroll.
In her letter of application, Domalski-Duricek wrote that while no one could claim to perform exactly as her late husband would have, "I am confident that I can make decisions of which he, and by proxy, the voters of Rossford would approve."
Medical technician at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center said as the late councilman's wife she had "a front row seat to and a well-rounded perspective on the issues facing Rossford today."

Jeremy Albrecht will spend four years in prison for the crash that resulted in the 2011 death of a Bloomdale woman.
Albrecht, 34, Findlay, was sentenced Monday in the courtroom of Wood County Judge Reeve Kelsey.
Albrecht previously pleaded to one count of aggravated vehicular homicide, a third-degree felony, and one count of operating a vehicle while under the influence, a first-degree misdemeanor.
He had initially been indicted on two counts of each charge.
The charges stem from a July 18, 2011, motorcycle crash on Ohio 18 near Bairdstown. Albrecht reportedly missed a sharp turn in the road. He and his passenger, Angela Cook, then 32, Bloomdale, were ejected from the vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Albrecht was also injured in the crash.
