Can you imagine a Christmas without Santa? Jim Manning can’t. Back in 1996, a friend asked him to put on the suit for the first time, for her 2 nieces. The joy on their faces when Santa Claus arrived was overwhelming. Jim remembered all of the happy memories he had as a child meeting Santa, and a love of portraying the jolly old elf was born. From a humble start of one small appearance to the over 10,000 children Santa Boston has visited with, we’re proud to call ourselves New England’s #1 creator of wonderful Christmas memories. Because that’s what we do. From marriage proposals to landing in a helicopter on the front lawn, our Santa visits are special. Our goal is to deliver to you the best Santa appearance you’ve ever had. And once you see us for the first time, we think you’ll want to have us back every year. We specialize in working with families and family-friendly organizations needing an authentic, high quality Santa visit. Our appearance is authentic. Our character is jolly and fun. And our signature “Ho, Ho, Ho!” sounds like it comes right from the North Pole.
