Santa Claus visits including: home visits, parties, store/mall visits, and corporate events. Santa of Enchantment sings and plays instruments, plays games, tells stories and jokes and also speaks Spanish, Navajo and American Sign Language.
The moment Santa Marshal arrived I knew our employees and their children were in for a treat. He was the real deal!
His outfit was authentic, not a poor store bought copy, but one that made me believe he must really be Santa! The details, from the lapel pin, the old pocket watch hanging from his pocket, to the fur lined boots.
Many children delighted in tugging at his real beard, was priceless!
Santa Marshal took time with each child, asking them questions, such as "do you know how many reindeer I have?" to singing traditional songs that kept the children entertained even while standing in line waiting their turn.
Reciting, t'was the night before Christmas, had even the parents believing!
One particular employee, was overwhelmed with emotion when she brought her Mother in, along with her daughter, to see Santa. Her mom is in hospice, and this magical moment made a deep lasting memory for them all to have, knowing that this time in their life was all the more precious.
If you truly want a Santa that cares about providing a magical moment, then look no further than Santa Marshal.
I definitely will be booking him again for years to come, that is, if his dance card doesn't fill up first.
Thank you Santa Marshal!!

What to Expect
Santa makes a grand entrance with his walking staff, covered with sleigh bells and lights topped with a Christmas star. On his way to his chair Santa greets everyone, especially the children with friendly and robust ho ho dos and usually a couple of hugs on the way. Every child and sometimes an adult or two gets personal lap time with Santa. Sometimes children afraid of the man in the red suit and Santa usually is able to patiently create a connection with these children. Santa also has the experience to work effectively with children of all ages from newborn to teenagers and other children who "don't believe in Santa" Santa also enjoys parents and seniors.
Santa will recite from memory "The Night Before Christmas" tell Christmas stories and jokes and play games from his Santa repertoire. Santa will sing Christmas songs, accompanying himself from several instruments he plays, in English, Spanish and Navajo. Santa will also spread cheer in other languages (including sign language) according to the situation. Santa will also make accommodations for special populations, such as the disabled, to provide a quality Santa experience for everyone. Photo opportunities with Santa of course are part of the experience.
Providing an exceptional Santa visit is Santa's goal and is guaranteed or it is free. Santa will never turn a visit away because of a family or group's financial situation.
I am Santa Marshall. Since I live in New Mexico, “the land of enchantment” I have a new name, Santa of Enchantment. After playing Santa with my grandkids I accidentally fell into this Santa thing when I was voluntold, because nobody else would do it around 2000. I started doing the Santa thing in my town with both the local Fire Department and Children Youth and Family Department. I am a volunteer fireman/emt and until my retirement in 2015 a social worker. After my retirement I chose to use my time to share the Santa experience everywhere I can.
As a social worker I mostly investigated allegations of child abuse and neglect. Since then the Spirit of Santa grabbed me and won’t let go. I couldn’t fool my granddaughter though. She Told Santa “I know you are Grandpa because when you are not here Santa is and you wear the same boots”.
To me working with children, especially ill children and those with special needs most rewarding. I do this part of my Santa work for free. I remember a developmentally disabled 30 year old man who sits on my lap every year. A high school senior who sat on my lap on a dare, and this year a grandma who just lost her son who still believes.
So, it was a natural choice to try and take this Santa thing to a higher level of service and satisfaction in my retirement. I trust the Spirit of Santa and/or my higher angels will open some new chapters for me with some great surprises.
I have also worked as a volunteer with Hospice of New Mexico, local hospitals and nursing homes; sometimes in my reds, sometimes not. I am a volunteer Santa registered with Santas America, a non profit organization working with hospitals, children and their families. I am also a maker of the International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santas (IBRBS).
