An Intrinsic Love for Christmas

Making Magic with Your Guests

I’ve always loved the Christmas season since my mother began creating memories as a young child. The nativity scene, her baking, and our beautiful trees always seemed a little bit like magic. As I grew into adulthood, I’ve kept that magic as part of my life.

When I started going gray and getting a bit round, my family started calling me Santa and suggested it might be a good fit. In late 2011, I watched “ Becoming Santa,” the story of Jack Sanderson’s evolution and adventures in putting on the Red Suit. I began my research, sought training, and became Santa for the first time in 2012.

A Background in Performance

Ready for Your Audience

I began telling stories for general audiences in 1999. Over the years, I’ve developed a good feel for creating exceptional pictures in your imagination, captivating children and adults with folktales and traditional stories. Even in the Television Age, a well-told story will guide you through the highs and lows of its hero and bring you safely home.

When I began portraying Santa, I brought those skills into my portrayal. Whether you are a small family or an audience of hundreds, Santa Jim’s seasonal stories will bring you joy to make your season jolly.

A Jolly Good Time

Let’s face it – Christmases are something we look back on for years to come, remembering the good times we’ve had shared with wonderful people. Creating joyful memories is the point of all your planning and details you put into your holiday event. Hiring a professional Christmas entertainer enables you to capture the magic of the moment, whether it’s a private visit, wedding, anniversary, corporate occasion, or studio photography session.
