The real Santa
The magic of Christmas
The Most Authentic Santa South Of The North Pole!©

Santa understands that this year is a bit different.

We all need to do our very best to keep each other safe & healthy.

Even Santa wears his mask when he's around the elves! 


With that in mind, he’ll be keeping his distance during the holiday season and will not be making "in-person" visits.

(Don't worry, gifts will still be delivered under your tree. You'll be asleep & that's at least 6ft of space.)

He’s setting aside time to film short Personalized Santa Video Messages to kids, families or groups of any size!

This unique and personalized gift is something that kids (and adults) will be sharing and re-watching as the excitement of the Christmas Season grows.

It’s not just for kids! He'll create a special Santa shout out for your company team who’s worked hard throughout the year; or perhaps bring a smile to the face of a friend or loved one!

With every order, Santa will send a questionnaire with a few questions to personalize the Virtual Santa Message, and make it an extra special opportunity for the recipient to know that Santa is thinking of them!

Videos will be sent by email.

Dash away, dash away, dash away all to this

one-of-a-kind opportunity!

Deadlines for submissions:


All payments and questionnaires must be completed and delivered to Santa by Saturday December 19th.

Videos will be emailed to recipients no later than December 23rd.


We are sorry, but the due date for ordering your personalized Santa video has past & the elves are busy preparing for Christmas eve again! 

For those that ordered, we warmly thank you.

Santa will be filming your video and the elves will send it out to your email asap no later than the 23rd. 

Santa wishes you all a safe and happy Christmas and hopes to see you all in person Christmas 2021!

The Christmas season is a time of togetherness with special traditions, priceless memories with your children & loved ones & magical moments that you will treasure always. The addition of this traditional, yet unique Santa will leave everyone with the gift of a smile upon their faces & a warm glow in their hearts.

I have been a professional character actor, director and designer for many years at theatres, private & corporate events, festivals and Walt Disney World!

My Santa has the appearance of a real bearded Santa with an original custom built Santa Suit. My Mr. Claus is both traditional yet unique. You won’t see another Santa like mine!


The designer beard I use is movie quality 100% real human hair. It was created for me by hand by Ron Wolek of  Wolek's Famous World's Greatest Moustache Parlour!

My wardrobe was designed and built by myself and is both elegant and uniquely Santa! Sure to convince even the most skeptical that Santa Claus is real.


With a warm personality full of love my Santa will charm the children and the child at heart in the adults.
