Santa John

Why book Santa John?

Since 1996 Santa John has been meeting and listening to childrens wishes for the holiday season. As a real bearded Santa there is never a worry about the gentle tug of the beard surprising a child and confirming their doubts. Allow Santa John to visit your family this year!



Amazing Santa!!!

I hired Santa John for a charity event on November 18th 2012. He was amazing!! The kids as well as adults loved him! He fits the role of Santa perfectly. He's jolly, gentle, merry.....

Santa John is AMAZING! Believe in the magic of Santa Claus.

Santa John visited our house for the first time this past Friday and it was AWESOME!!!! We definitely hope to have him back again next year. My daughters were speechless, excited, amazed. My husband and I were reminded of the magic in believing. He’s the real thing (no fake beard here), takes lots of time with the kids, read “Twas the Night Before Christmas”, brought presents, and had a “punch list” of insider information that his elves have been collecting all year. My five year old could not believe that he actually knew and had spoken with her Kindergarten Teacher. I would highly recommend Santa John to anyone looking to share the magic of Santa Claus with their children.

I hired Santa John at our annual "Breakfast With Santa" on December 18th 2011. I own a dance studio, and every year we have a huge event with Santa! I used to have my husband Dress as Santa, However this year, I wanted the "Real" Santa, and I got him!! Not only does Santa John Look Like Santa, He acted Like Santa! We had over 175 guests at our party. When he entered the room, he greeted each table, and made everyone feel so special! He sat in his Santa Chair, and each child sat on his lap, gave them their lists, and took a picture with kids of all ages! Even adults, Including myself! Kids came up to me after and said “Miss Allison, that is REALLY Santa!" He is here! I cant believe it! " He is not like a Santa you would see at a mall, He is as real as it gets!

He made every child feel so special! He took the time to listen to each child ( We had a lot) He had wonderful facial expressions, such high spirits, and overall was just out standing!!! If you want a "Real" Santa at any of your events, Santa John is the one!!! It was worth every Penny, and I will have Santa John at all of my future events! He was very professional, very good with communication, etc. If you want to see any photos from our event, or would like to even contact me personally, Feel free to do so at anytime!

I Believe!

Santa John is jolly good- great with kids and grown ups alike! If you want to add a sparkle to the kiddies eyes, and hear shouts of "I believe!", then he is your man. My kids have loved seeing him at various events over the last 6 years, and he has never disappointed!!
