This vendor provides virtual services
Greetings from Santa Billy. Hope you all are staying safe. In-person visits are back for 2021! However, due to the overwhelming success of last year's Zoom visits, I will offer this option this year. I received a large number of compliments and comments last year, so I will continue to visit you in the comforts of your home. I'm working of getting my workshop ready for live video chats with lights, cameras, and action! Typical Zoom virtual visits can last up to 15 minutes. Multiple family visits on the same call were a great hit last year. Can you imagine having 8 different locations on the same virtual call? Wow, that was fun. Plan on a 30-minute call so everyone can talk to Santa.
Enchanting! I never dreamed that anyone could take the roll of Santa and bring us all back to our childhoods, not to mention how he captivated the children overcoming all difficult questions posed by some who are on the brink of disbelief, they are back in the believers column. Santa Billy was wonderful, so very talented and our family has requested that he visit us again next Christmas Eve. He took a zoom party to a new level, he is excellent.
Response from Santa Billy:
Thank you Sharon for allowing me into your homes to share the joys of the Holidays with you and your families. It was great to visit with all of them in multiple locations and talk about their activities and successes. Once again, thank you for your kind words. Stay safe and healthy.
My kids can’t stop talking about their visit with Santa. He was engaging and funny and kind. Will share his info with everyone. Thank you so much for a great memory!
Santa Billy was a perfect virtual Santa. He had a lifelike North Pole backdrop, props, and a solid knowledge of technology. Santa was reassuring to the children, during a difficult time. He reminded them to say “please and thank you”, and also told them to be kind. These are the same values that we try to instill in our students at the cultural center. Thank you Santa Billy!
Santa Billy had me believing he was Santa!! He did a wonderful job with knowing my Grandchildren’s names and the things they do excellent excellent will tell everyone I know already posted on Facebook he was able to do a FaceTime because it was the only way I knew how to do it he went above and beyond
Response from Santa Billy:
Thank you Patricia for allowing me into your home to share the joys of the Holidays with you and your grandchildren. It was great to visit with them and talk about their activities. I think Jordan was surprised for me to know he recently lost his front teeth. Stay safe and healthy.
Santa. Billy did a great job and knew a little about each child. They were amazed! 12 grandchildren and they all loved him. And they were all on the good list. A great night
We had 7 children ranging from 6-13 and 7 adults. According to the parents the older kids had some doubts on whether or not Santa was real. But after meeting Santa Billy they are now true believers. Santa Billy is Santa. He’s adorable. Loving. Kind. Happy. Jolly. Funny. And very interested in each and every child. He asked questions. He opened it up to recieve questions ...
We made a Santa scroll that listed all the “Good Boy and Girls”. He read a loud all the good things each child did this past year. He mentioned things only Santa would know!
His beard is real, bright white, soft and truly Santa like. His outfit ... straight from the North Pole.
Could not have been more happy! He’s a beautiful Santa through and through!
Response from Santa Billy:
Dear Carol and Rob,
Thank you so much for inviting me and letting me be part of your Holiday gathering. I appreciate your honest feedback and great comments. Being a second generation Santa Claus, I enjoy meeting and spending time with personable families such as yours. The children were very well behaved and were fun to be with. Thanks again and I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year. Regards, Santa Billy
I can’t express enough my heart filled thanks to all of you for making our first annual Breakfast with Santa Claus for the children at New Haven Reads a huge success!

Santa Billy and his wife Mrs Claus were excellent. They truly looked like Mr and Mrs Claus. The children and adults absolutely loved them. They made sure all the children were involved regardless of their ages. I had children ranging from 4 months to 16 years old. I asked ahead of time if they would decorate stockings with the children and prior to the event they bought the stockings and wrote the childrens names on each one. They certainly made our christmas party a success and i would recommend them to everyone. -- Tracey W, Middletown, CT, 12/11/2009

What to Expect
Santa Billy sometimes reads The Night Before Christmas or The Polar Express to children. A few events included guests wearing their own Rudolph's red nose and singing Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. Many families will provide individual, wrapped gifts for Santa to distribute during the evening.
This year, Santa Billy will have a new friend with him. It's a Rabbit in a hat; a soft, friendly, cuddly rabbit who always seems to want to jump out of the hat and visit with the very young children. The rabbit will accompany Santa Billy when he visits private homes, day care centers; nursery schools; and parties with children ages four and under.
Santa Billy is a real-bearded, second generation, smoke-free, true-to-life, authentic looking and professional Santa Claus who will provide for a memorable and fun experience by posing for photographs, leading in song, read books, and distribute your gifts. This jolly old Santa is a real Santa with a natural white beard and mustache, black boots, red suit, black belt, and jingle bells. Don't wait - send in your requests now for that special event you have been planning. Santa Billy tries to accommodate every request, but even with his new sleigh, he can't be everywhere on the same date.
Santa Billy has completed a national background check and the Safe Environment Training Class required by the Diocese of Norwich, CT for all who have contact with children.
