Why book Santa John?

I portray and am a storytelling Santa Claus for Maryland, northern Virginia, and Washington, DC. I tell some stories from a traditional storytelling format, and others use various slight-of-hand tricks as aids. I bring candy canes with me (sugar-free candy also for diabetics) as well as red "Rudolph" noses for leading the group in a rendition of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer." I have a natural beard and my own padding. And most important of all, I have a genuine love for and concern toward children of all ages. Of course, I spend one-on-one time with the children for them to share with me their hopes and dreams. I travel to homes, businesses, restaurants, hospitals, and nursing homes

Santa Claus in Waldorf, MD
We booked Santa John for a party with friends and family, and he made our event a huge success. He arrived right on time and immediately engaged everyone in singing some Christmas carols. He then settled into a chair by the fire and told some truly unique stories about his reindeer, and Christmas cookies. He engaged each of the children with a neat magic trick and even coaxed the teenagers to play along! It warmed the adults hearts to watch the kids eyes grow wide and mouths drop open as Santa told stories. This Santa is very sincere and has a kindness in his smile. We will have him back! Highly recommend for families with young children.

Santa was great. He was kind, sensitive, interactive, animated and entertaining. He was able to hold the attention of small children for an hour and he really worked around my child's shyness. I couldn't have asked for better and we are so grateful that Santa was able to squeeze us into his busy schedule. Thank you, Santa!

Santa Claus in Waldorf, MD
Santa John and his lovely wife, Mrs. Claus, came to a fundraiser for my best friend's son. We were blessed enough to share an entire afternoon with the two of them. I don't think Christmas will ever be the same if we don't see them both in the future! Although the event was not as well attended as we had hoped, Santa John never lost the twinkle in his eye, the "jolly" in his spirit, or the smile in his Ho Ho HO! Truly the most Holiday Spirit filled soul I've ever met! I definitely will be sharing Christmases in the future with them if I have anything at all to do with it! Thank you!
