If you want a truly one of a kind Santa Claus visit through Gigsalad.com, then I’m the Santa 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 Big Giant 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 adult. And finally the joy of handing out gifts that you have provided to each person. Santa will also give to each child an old English Penny 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.
