About A Santa 4U

hired 10 times on Thumbtack

I'm a real bearded Santa that makes visits to deliver presents, check to see who is naughty or nice, read stories, sing songs with the children, and bring the magic and excitement of Christmas to all.

I visit daycare facilities, homes, schools, photo studios,and make company visits that have events for their employees, children and families. I volunteer for parties at military units and children with special needs. I also do adult appreciation parties for clients and employees.

I work with my clients to make sure the event is what they want, and not just what I will do. I do not drink alcohol at events, even if it is offered to me, and I perform in a clean, sober and drug-free condition.

I'm insured and background checked. My clients appreciate how patient and gentle I am with the children, and how I work with the photographer to get a great photo.

Santa James is a Santa of distinction.

    He's a really terrific Santa - all of the kids enjoyed his visit. Even the oldest (8 years old) was a true believer. She asked him tough questions and he always gave a great answer. Any doubt in her mind disappeared during his visit.

    Working with Santa James was a truly magical experience! He was warm and friendly to the dogs, children, and adults who attended our event.

    He was on-time and in character for 3 hours. I believe in Santa James, and you will too. Highest recommendation!

    Santa James did a great job. He was the most authentic looking Santa we have had yet. He was so calm and soft spoken, the kids felt instantly comfortable. I would deifnately hire him again!

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Contact the provider and ask any questions you may have about their service and what your expectations are. Be comfortable with whom you are talking to and make sure you are able to work with the provider. Start shopping for your Santa early because the best time and dates go fast, as do the better Santa's. Be specific and clear as to what you want your Santa to do on his visit.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. Why and how, did you become involved with this trade. Have you had any schooling to become a Santa and do you keep Christ in Christmas?

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. Do you like what you do and can you provide a service to the client that is satisfactory. What will you do that will make me happy, by selecting you to provide the service?

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. At 5' 6", I'm not as tall as most of the other Santa's, and I am quite robust. Many tell me I look like the real Santa, and I am very patient with the Children. I have been babysitting our grandchildren since 1998 so I am very comfortable around the little ones, and sometimes the not so little ones. I enjoy being Santa and I think that reflects on my performance. Santa James
