Types of Home Visits:

Father Yule Visit – Santa John will come to your home, put gifts you have left out into his bag and make a big entrance. Typical visits include pictures with Santa (everyone, Santa is there for the whole group. Whether they are new borns or 100+ years young), listening to what the group wants for Christmas, telling Holiday stories and singing Christmas songs. Santa will get to the grand event and hand out presents, sit for more pictures and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas before he departs back to the North Pole.

Santa Birthday At Home Visit – Santa John can help make your child’s (or anyone’s) birthday extra special by wishing him/her a happy birthday in person. We can do this anytime of the year. Father Christmas will make a grand entrance, greet all of the guests, deliver a special birthday present, then lead everyone in singing Happy Birthday. Of course there will be plenty of pictures too.

Or create a shared memory that will last a lifetime? Have Santa John visit your home late Christmas Eve or early Christmas Morning (from 11pm to 5am, that’s why it’s VERY limited). Santa will fill stockings and pull out presents from his magical toy sack while you and the kids watch from a ‘hidden’ location.

Ultimate Santa Claus Visit (VERY, VERY limited availability on Christmas Eve and Christmas, it is one that can be done with any visit, the fee is the same which ever days you pick) – If you want a truly one of a kind Santa Claus visit, then this package is for you. Santa John will consult with you about your children’s names, what they are currently interested in, and about Christmas gifts from the past. We bring our own on staff photographer to your home and set up. Then Santa John will make a big entrance and greet your children by name. They will be mesmerized by his authenticity and personality as he tells stories about life at the North Pole. Santa Claus will perform his unique first person version of “The Elf and Children Who Saved Christmas” (Those children in the story will be the your children) and He’ll have everyone singing Christmas songs while he plays the Kazobo (a huge Kazoo.) While all of this is going on, our professional photographer will be capturing photos. Santa Claus will then listen to the hopes and dreams of each child and hand out gifts that you have provided to each child. Santa will also give to each child a wire wrapped ring or necklace and tell a story about it and sing “Merry Christmas to you,” with the whole group. Fun photographs of your children with Santa John will be taken, including several specific poses guaranteed to be treasured by you for years to come. Family pictures are also included. These pictures will be edited and delivered to you electronically. But if you would like we can also, print them in any way you wish (for an extra fee.)

We are only able to offer a select number of “Ultimate Santa Claus visits” each year and scheduling is limited. They generally last about an hour, depending on the number and age of children. This is the best Santa Claus experience available for the true believers out there.
