About
The Santa Connection's Santa Dave is a real natural white-full bearded, truly professional Santa Claus whose joy it is, is to bring the true spirit of Christmas and the Holidays to both the children and adults he visits year round. Santa Dave has membership in the International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santa's and The Clan Claus Society as well as a membership in Clausnet - bringing people together to build friendships that help spread happiness to the true believers of Santa Claus -- the child inside all of us.
Each year Santa Dave completes a background check as required and the results are made available upon request. Santa Dave has just received his Whooping Cough booster (TDAP) and his yearly flu shot on 10/2019, so will be ready to hold newborns and infants.

*** New for the 2020 season, I am now ready to make Virtual visits via SKYPE.

Children are in awe to see Santa Claus and Santa Dave encourages adults to imagine being 6 years old; to experience the wonderment of Christmas as a child all over again even if it is for a short period of time. Enjoy the memorable and fun experience by having Santa Dave pose for photos (take as many as you like), distribute your gifts, lead a sing along and mingle and interact with children and adults. Having trained as a Story Teller, Santa Dave can have everyone entertained with a good hearty Christmas story.

“Santa Dave has been the Santa at our community Christmas party for the past four years. The party is open to our entire building of 100 families and is also attended by numerous neighbors and kids enrolled in our after school programs. We partner with a law firm who hosts this event, which is always a huge success. A key element to our success is the presence of Santa Dave as Santa. First off, he looks exactly like our image of Santa with his white hair and long beard and his smiling countenance. He is amazingly patient with everyone from crying infants to the long line of picture seeking parents and grandparents. He calms down the kids, jokes with the parents, and gets stodgy lawyers to laugh and engage. The kids in our building wait all year for this party and for Santa and Dave never disappoints. He truly cares about the people who live in our community and who sometimes have very little and have come to expect even less. Dave is unfailingly generous, kind, fun, calm, and authentic in his interactions with ever participant at this event. Anyone engaging him to play Santa will be more than satisfied. He's great!”

- C. W. Executive Director

"We were so pleased with our Santa visit from Santa Dave! He was very patient with our 6 month old daughter and accommodated all of our family poses, including poses with the dog! We got some great pictures for our family Christmas card and memories to last a lifetime."

He was great in the zoom meeting, answered all the kids questions. This is the second time I have hired him and looking forward to hiring him next year.

We have worked with Dave for theclastv6 years and were so happy we could find a way to still celebrate this year. Our kids onky know the one and only Santa. The kids did some songs, asked lots of questions and he also read them a story. He made a difficult year more magical for our son and many of his friends.
