"Dear Santa Steve,
Thank you very much for coming over tonight, the kids and adults as well loved it. You did an amazing job. I know that if I am asked if I know a “Santa” you are number one on my list! I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you again for taking the time and accommodating us.
"Hi Santa Steve,
Thank you sooo much for coming to our family celebration. The little ones, after you left, looked at the pictures and video all they would talk about is Santa! The adults loved it also. They are already talking about ideas for next year with you. I know we are definitely keeping your information so we can have you visit again next year. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
"Dear Santa Steve,
We enjoyed your visit, and appreciate that you came despite the weather...We are already planning on inviting you next year...please let me know when we could book a date. I'm sorry all of our families couldn't meet you. They were not as brave about the weather as Santa was. The families who came were very impressed with you. My daughters are still talking about you.
Thank you for making our Christmas extra special!
Jenine and Timothy B."
We highly recommend Santa Steve! He braved the blizzard to come to our party. My clients were impressed that I contacted the North Pole and had the "real" Santa come to our get together! Santa Steve is very professional, yet warm with children and adults. He has a marvelous singing voice that could put even Scrooge in the Christmas spirit. Santa Steve will be a part of our family tradition from now on. Jenine and Timothy B.
