What to Expect
What you want is what you get! For home visits, personal time with each child (adults, too!) and optional storytelling. Usually a half-hour is enough time.
In a party setting with kids, photo opportunities and story telling. For adults, mingling and photos with the crowd. Christmas song singing throughout.
I love kids and love spreading joy. I've raised two fine young men, spent time as a talk show host, Boy Scout, church volunteer, mentor and teacher. As I have "matured", I decided to let my already-white beard grow, eat a few more cookies, get an official uniform, take an online class from the highly-regarded Santa Claus Conservancy and...HO-HO-HO.....Santa Gary comes to town!
Through the Conservancy, I took classes in "how-to", home, school and shopping center visits, community events, video chats, storytelling, visits with special needs children, photo sessions, and more, all to assure a quality, personal Santa experience for your family and friends. I also attended the convention of the International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santas (no kidding!).
Thanks to a happy face and a jolly disposition, kids take to me immediately. The sight of a child running into Santa's arms is one of the great joys at the holidays. I've also done events and visits with senior citizens and handicapped and special needs kids and adults.
