Santa Jack was the most convincing Santa that I or my guests have ever encountered. Mrs. Claus was great, too. As we all know, there is only one Santa. And Santa Jack is The One.
Santa and Mrs. C. have two types of visits:
1. "Make-a-List Visits" made at any time of year with the exception of Dec. 24th to private homes, community centers, Sunday Schools, professional organizations, retirement homes/nursing homes, and many, many more (see VENUES following the description of our two types of visits). A description of these visits is shown immediately below this intro and are normally for an hour or more.
2. "Sneak-a-Peek Visits" made to private homes on Dec. 24th when Santa and Mrs. C. deliver "their" presents to your Christmas Tree while your children and True Believers watch with "wondering eyes." This visit is described below the "Make-a-List Visit" and is normally made for about 15 minutes (to preserve the Magic).
Santa likes to make an entrance playing his Scottish Bag Pipes prior to seating himself in a soft seat next to Mrs. Claus.
When they have settled in (with the children arranged around their feet), Mrs. C. enjoys reading the Tots a Tall Tale or Two, interspersed with the Singing of a Seasonal Song or So with Twinkle (our North Pole Christmas Tree), another with Frosty, and yet another with Randolph (Rudolph's baby brother - he has a red nose, but it does not glow). We have found that we are frequently accompanied in song by ALL of the "children" in the audience, regardless of age.
Santa enjoys answering the children's questions about the North Pole, Santa's workshop, his travels around the world, Elf and Reindeer magic, and the like. Occasionally, Santa subjects the audience to a lame magical trick or two prior to interviewing his three foot tall clientele.
We have found that Mrs. C. is exceptional at encouraging those recalcitrant two year old's to visit her knee when they seem to be a bit overly cautious about the other Claus in the room. Mrs. C. also enjoys interviewing the older children prior to their visit with Santa. Amazingly, Santa magically knows the child's name and a bit of the child's "nice" and "naughty" history that has been Previously or Presently Provided by the Presiding Parental elves.
Santa and Mrs. C. normally make their departure following Santa's recitation of "The Night Before Christmas" (much more dramatically delivered than in the video to the right).
We also enjoy visits to professional organizations where we present a slide show on "The History of Santa Claus," and to churches and Sunday schools where we present the Biblical story of the birth of Baby Jesus and tie in how Saint Nicholas became associated with Christmas.
Now, Santa "occasionally" invites Mrs. Claus to accompany him on Christmas Eve while he is making his rounds. If you would like to have us visit your home to drop off Santa's presents to your children, while the get to watch with "wondering eyes," we would be delighted to "drop in." Be sure you have plenty of milk and cookies!!!
PLEASE, Enjoy the Titles based "Santa Story" to the right and may your daily life be as filled with magic as it is during the Christmas Season.
