Such a Happy Santa Memory for Our Kids...

Santa captures everyone’s attention when he walks into the room...
Santa Jim has been entertaining our employees and their families at our year-end holiday party for over 4 years. He is a huge hit with the kids and adults alike. Santa captures everyone’s attention when he walks into the room shouting “HO HO HO”. The excitement is palatable as the children stare at him in wide eyed wonder and you can hear a pin drop as he reads “Twas The Night Before Christmas”. Santa Jim’s cheery, friendly demeanor make even the youngest child eager to share their Christmas list with him. We LOVE having him at our party! Thank you, Santa Jim!

"Thank you so much for making our night special!"
Santa Jim, you were the hit of the party! Everyone is still talking about it! Thank you so much for making our night special! Merry Christmas to you too! See you next year!
His jolly ho, ho, ho echoes through our home...
We absolutely love Santa Jim...when you see the sparkling smiles on the children¹s faces when he makes his appearance the MAGIC of the CHRISTMAS SEASON is all around us in the room. Santa's laughter, his jolly ho, ho, ho echoes through our home. The magic tricks he takes out of his bag, our children along with all the children watch and listen so intently you can hear a pin drop, how special is that! Santa takes time to have each child sit on his lap, and the wish list from each child is told as their parents are taking pictures that will last a lifetime.
"We still talk about favorite memories from that night..."
What a great night! Santa made a very special appearance coming all the way from the North Pole because a special person was celebrating her 50th birthday - and that Christine was born on Santa's favorite day of the year, Christmas Eve, 1965! We still talk about favorite memories from that night. So special.

You went above and beyond the call of duty!
Santa Jim! You went above and beyond the call of duty! He absolutely loved it and was so surprised! I'm pretty sure you turned us all into believers. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness! That was awesome!

He is genuine and great with kids and adults alike...
“Every year Santa Jim kicks off the Christmas season for us in our greenhouse. While ours is his first appearance as Santa each year, you’d never know it. He is genuine and great with kids and adults alike, even remembering some of their names year to year! Parents are constantly coming up to me telling me he’s the best Santa they’ve ever seen. It’s no wonder the visit from Santa has grown into one of our most widely-attended events on the farm! Hire Santa Jim – you won’t regret it!"
