Tips & Tricks for your visit from
HAVE YOUR CAMERA READY
Be sure to have all cameras, camcorders and batteries necessary to take the photos you want. Be sure to recharge or have fresh batteries and an empty SD card.
RESERVE A SPECIAL PARKING PLACE FOR SANTA
It should be right where he is visiting. If he parks down the street or around the corner and has to walk all the way to your home or office, he will be winded and exhausted when he gets there. Remember, he's wearing a heavy velvet suit that gets very hot. We always budget about five minutes for parking. Any more time than that is part of your allotted time.
If the visit is at your home, leave an opening at the end of your driveway. Put a temporary barrier in the space. Have some fun and put a sign out "Reserved for Santa!" or back one car down the driveway with a space in front. When Santa calls that he is there, whoever greets him outside can pull the car up in the driveway and Santa can park right behind.
If your event is at a company facility, office building or hotel, try to make arrangements for Santa to park in a valet or loading area. Again, you can mark the area with a fun sign. This makes it easier for him to be fresh and ready to bring joy to your guests.
HAVE YOUR GIFTS READY
Santa does not bring any gifts with him. He will hand out candy canes (with the parents’ permission) and gifts and can carry in one bag of presents (40 lbs. or less) for children or guests. They should be well labeled. We suggest a large black marking pen and writing directly on the gift, as tags can easily fall off. All packages should fit into one 35-gallon trash bag. He will then transfer the gifts to his "Santa" bag. If you have more gifts, Santa will usually ask a couple of the 'big kids' (adults) to be honorary Elves and instruct them to bring in the extra gifts.
HAVE A SPECIAL CHAIR FOR SANTA
Folding chairs, plastic chairs, and low chairs (the one's you sink into) are not good. Santa likes a chair that is sturdy and stable. A good, sturdy straight-back dining chair with no arms works well. He should be able to sit comfortably with the chair supporting him plus a child on each knee.
PLACE SANTA IN A HOLIDAY SETTING
Maybe in front of a decorated wall or any festive type of backdrop, and your photos will have more impact. Place a wreath, a few Christmas cards or your children's drawings on the wall to make a wonderful difference. Leave a foot or two between the chair and the tree or wall. This will allow room for others to gather around and behind Santa's chair for group photos. Fireplaces do look nice but remember putting Santa too close to a real fire is not good for his comfort or health. Please make sure that your inside location isn't overly warm or even hot. If possible, have a small fan available to help keep Santa cool during his appearance.
PLEASE, NO SMOKING AROUND SANTA! The smoke can cause health issues, as well as a smelly suit.
GET EVERYOE TOGETHER BEFORE SANTA ENTERS
Timing is everything. Santa's contracted time begins the minute he arrives. Minutes spent getting everyone together are part of your contracted time. If everyone is scattered around the house or office, you lose valuable time. Santa and you can coordinate. He should call you when he is five minutes away from arriving. That's your cue to have someone go outside to meet Santa, and for you to get everyone together and maybe to sing some Christmas Carols. If Santa is to bring in presents, the person meeting him can help him fill his bag. Then, at the right moment, Santa can pop in and join everyone in the singing. If you have a large group of children to see Santa, you should assign someone to be Santa's helper and coordinate the children as they each visit Santa.
THINK ABOUT THE PHOTOS WITH EVERYONE
Yes, some teenagers and adults will shy away or think it is too “childish” to have a photo with Santa. Don't worry; Santa will stand up for a "buddy" photo. What about grandma and grandpa? Take a photo with Santa and Grandma hugging. And, nothing is more fun than having Santa ask Grandpa if he's been a good boy.
PAYMENT DUE TO SANTA:
If there is a balance or payment due to Santa, please place it inside a Christmas card or envelope. It never looks appropriate when someone gives cash to Santa. So, as Santa is departing, hand him the envelope and say, "Thank you Santa, and here is a Christmas card from all of us".
SANTA NEVER BREAKS FROM HIS CARACTER
This is very important and something most adults don’t mean to do. Please don’t say things to Santa such as “Why you’re one of the best Santa’s I’ve ever seen”. Don’t ask questions about when he started playing Santa or where did he get his costumes. It’s very important that you treat Santa Kyle as Santa Claus and not as someone that plays Santa Claus. Please help keep the wonder of Christmas for your children and others.
