New York Santa
About this pro
My interpretation of Santa if geared for a wide variety of people, young and old alike. I am attentive, intelligent, creative, imaginative and playful. I'm not just "some guy you've hired to show up at your party or house... I'm there to entertain and make your Christmas memorable, not just short term, but forever. Last year I was joined by LITTLE CLAUS©, a young elf that willet one say grow up to be the next Santa. Please feel free to visit my website and click on the link to LITTLE CLAUS to read more about this special elf. Having adults tell me that I've convinced them I'm the real Santa. The kids already know it, it's always the adults who are the skeptics. When I hear "if I didn't know better I'd swear you're the real thing" simply reply "What makes you think I'm not the real Santa?"
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Rates vary depending in date, time, location and of course type of event. Availability preferences are given to repeate customers and charitable institutions, but I work hard to meet all requests. My suggestion is to book as early as possible. Remember when Santa makes a promise to appear, he'll be there!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Being Santa requires knowing psychology, math, geography, language, magic, knowing how to tell a joke, knowing how to take a joke, knowing how to read publicly, being animated, religion, even law and first aid. Let's face it, Santa has been around for a long long time. He has to be quite knowledge about more than toys.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?My Santa career actually started with a tragic event, the bombing of the World Trade Center. I became a volunteer Santa as a way of staying thanks to the families of the brave police and firemen who risked and/gave their lives to protect civilians on that fateful September day. Prior to that day, I had only been Santa for family and friends. Now I've been Santa for thousands of children.
