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 John truly made our Christmas magical.
We have 6 kids (3 bio and 3 foster) and out of those 6 kids 4 have sensory issues, tramma, and/or learning delays. We also are very close with another family who have a foster daughter with a huge fear of men and PTSD. I thought it would be amazing to have Santa come to our home and visit the kids in a more "familiar enviroment".
Amazing! Just Amazing the way these kids just opened up to Santa and really listened to the stories and songs he shared (which are awesome by the way). The ages of the kids varied from 11 yrs to 16 months. Even a few of the "older kids" who were on the fence of "is Santa real or not" truly enjoyed the visit and have reconsidered the magic of Santa, at least for one more year.
Santa John made this a Christmas our kids (and parents) will remember forever. I am sure they will pass the stories and traditions Santa John told us down to their kids one day.
If we are still stationed in Virginia next Christmas Santa John will be booked again with us for sure!!!
THANK YOU I'm glad you took time to listen to the kids. They had a wonderful time.
We’ve had Santa John visit our grandchildren for three years now and every time is more special than the last! Santa John IS Santa for our family! Kind, engaging and entertaining - Santa John is the perfect Santa! Thank you for bring us the magic of Christmas!
OMG, he was magnificent, outstanding excellent. He was very personable the children loved him. OMG he's a great story teller not only did he captivate the children he had the adults and the staff on edge listening. After he left when the parents came to pick the children up we could her them telling them about santa claus. I recommend him 200% I plan to hire him from now on and I recommended him to several organization.
Santa John was great! He arrived on time and was very engaging with the children who ranged in age from 1-4. Amazingly all of the children went to him and were not afraid as is often the case when children meet santa.
Santa John led the children in song, provided red noses to all the children and adults and read the Night Before Christmas. He also took individual and group photos with all the children.
A fun time was had by all
Santa John was very genuine! He literally was Santa😍
He told stories and got everyone involved.
The kids loved him as did the adults. I hope he's available again next year!!
Thank you Santa John
Thank you!!! So much Santa John for making our family holiday celebration for the kids great success...
Santa John was such a pleasure to work with. Having him at our client party was a huge hit and everyone loved him. Thanks so much! You
Hi. Santa John visited with our 4 grandchildren (ages 5, 4, 3, and 2) on 3 December. We enjoyed him this year just as much as last year! He sings songs, reads "the Night Before Christmas" and spend time talking with each child. The grandchildren with just spellbound! Thank you Santa John and we hope to see you again next year!
Santa John was professional and very interactive with our guest! We had a last minute schedule change and are very thankful that Santa John was able to accommodate us. Job well done. We look forward to booking you again next year!
The kids were mesmerized by Santa and he did a great job! They loved hearing his stories and sitting in his lap telling him what they would like for Christmas. The Rudolph noses he gave out were a hit too! He did a great job and I will hire him again.
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 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!
