Home, Corporate, Schools, and HOA visits are BACK!!!
Completed Moderna Vaccination process 4/17/21. Bring on the visits! WooHoo!!
I have 14+ years of professional experience in private home visits as well as public and corporate Santa appearances and am one of only a handful of real bearded Santa's (International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santa's) that actually bring an antique sleigh to almost every event. (Weather, space limitations, etc.)
If you are seeking a Santa that has FUN with the children as well as the parents, then look no further!
We hired Santa to come out for our Cub Scout end of the year party and he was absolutely amazing. He interacted with all of the children, and made each one feel special. He was encouraging, kind, thoughtful, and gave our kids an amazing Santa experience.
Santa was amazing!! He brought the sled and a backdrop and looked so good in our pictures!! 100% recommend.
Santa James was great to work with. Communication was clear and he was very responsive. He arrived on time and was just wonderful. I would highly recommend and will use him again if we need a Santa.
We recently hired Santa James for our neighborhood Children's Christmas party and I am so glad we did. He is a very authentic Santa with a real beard and nice looking suit. He was so easy to coordinate with and was quick to respond to my emails. The children loved him! He was very kind and jolly with the children and let the smaller kids take their time warming up to him. An added bonus was he brought his elf to take pictures which was nice for the parents who forgot to bring a camera. I definitely hope to hire him again next year, and will look into also renting his sleigh. I know the children would be so excited to see it.
Worked with him several times for our company events. Very easy to coordinate with. Didn't have to worry about anything. He actually brought up suggestions I didn't think about. Santa gear was flawless. White beard, bright blue eyes, and magical demeanor were 100% authentic. We all love having this guy at our events. Can't wait to meet his giant horse soon! Semper fidelis.

What to Expect
You can expect a professional and reliable Santa to attend your event. I specialize in walking around and meeting with the Children. I love nothing more than to interact with them as they are, not as they are told to be in the sleigh or during a picture. We always have a good time, even when a child feels the pressure of looking perfect for the picture and the parents are acting a bit like children themselves. I have the ability to take a step back and let the time be right for the child.
Kringle and Company Ranch provides all of your Santa needs whether it is a visit from Santa or a Letter or Video Call from Santa. I provide many services as a volunteer aboard NAS Fort Worth and have served their Santa needs for many years. As a volunteer on a military installation, I am given quarterly background and security checks by the US Department of Defense in order to maintain the ability to provide my service aboard the installations.
My desire is to ensure the child has the best possible experience with Santa and am fully committed to being the best possible Santa experience.
My Santa Style is that of 'Olde Worlde Santa' with my burgundy cloak and walking stick. I will often mix up my custom belts and boots and will sometimes appear with a Tan Belt and Boot (true to the Olde Worlde style) or my regular Black Belt and Boot.
When you book with me you can count on these things:
1) I will be where I am scheduled to be a minimum of 15 minutes early.
2) I will leave at the last possible second to ensure that each and every child receives their own special moment with Santa.
3) I am open to following your vision and guidelines for your event but will always fall back on the precepts and principles of representing the Spirit of Santa in the best possible light.
I am a smoke-free, alcohol-free Santa and appreciate being in places that are similar.
You never know which parent to take seriously when they are threatening you with your life when they are in an alcoholic state. "If you don't bring my daughter what she wants, I will hunt you down and hurt you..." Yes, unfortunately, that happens frequently at events with alcohol.
And no, you cannot Febreze smoke out of the Big Red Suit. Only the elves can truly remove the smoke from the custom suits and they keep that information to themselves, I guess for job security!
I love the joy a child has when they meet Santa and the responsibility I have for ensuring I represent the Spirit of Santa to the best of my ability.

Influences & Inspiration
I am influenced by the past generations of Santa. I believe that we should be open and transparent in our actions and make certain that we are representing those past generations, as well as our own families, in our conduct with the Children.
