Jolly Ol' St. Nick is a Real Bearded Santa who, besides his traditional job of bringing Holiday joy to boys & girls of all ages, also does talks on the history of Christmas and Santa Claus. In addition to your party or event, he does home visits, Christmas Eve "Sneak a Peeks" where your children actually get to see Santa deliver some of their gifts. He can come dressed in Santa's traditional suit, or in an Olde World Suit. Alternate personalities include Sinter Klaas, Father Christmas, & St. Nicholas.
Graybear the Pyrate offers similar services as Jolly Ol' St. Nick, except as either a Pyrate or Revolutionary War Privateer. He will also do black powder demonstrations where permitted.

Olde Tyme Holiday Magic & Re-Enacting in the Hudson Valley started in 2009, after I made the mistake of wearing a red shirt at a local mall during the Holiday Season. The mall security came up to me and asked me if I would please move further down the way. When I asked why they had this odd request, as I wasn't doing anything wrong as far as I knew, they pointed out that there were children gathering around me rather than their Santa. I had seen the children, but didn't realize what had been happening. I had been told in the past that I look like Santa Claus, but until this event, I honestly thought they were just kidding.
In addition to Santa, I also do Graybear the Pyrate. The reason for this is because I (according to family history) am related to a real Golden Age Pyrate. I enjoy teaching and started giving talks about real pyrates (my great, great, great grandfather & his Captain - Edmund Thach) as well as being a re-enactor at a local Revolutionary War site. Graybear than also became a Privateer, again giving living history & historical talks. I then started doing the same for Santa & Christmas.
While neither personality does magic or balloon tricks, they manage quite well to bring life & enjoyment to your event, and I will gladly provide references of past employers.
I have a full background check, which I renew annually, and again will provide a copy upon request.
Both characters are very versitile, so if you have a special request or need, please don't hesitate to contact me at any time.
