"It should be known that I am a real-bearded Santa. I started out as a traditional bearded Santa, but in my 50s, I decided that I wanted to grow my own beard. Does it make me a better Santa... not really, as Santa is something that starts in the heart. I enjoy making the children happy and making them smile. Even the challenge of getting at least one good picture with Santa of that child that fears him this year, makes me smile... even though some parents get frustrated. My real beard DOES make me more confident, knowing that those rowdy children can not remove my disguise.
To me, this is not a job. I love to be Santa and you will see that when I interact with your children and guests when I arrive. You will see why Santa is your friend forever."
