Home Visits

Here's an idea of what happens in a home visit.

(Actual visits may vary slightly depending on how many people attend, how engaged everyone is, and how many questions are asked of Santa. Adjustments are made "on the fly" to keep the visit within the time booked by the client.)

SANTA ARRIVES

  • In a normal home visit, I typically enter the home and greet everyone there. I talk a little about taking time off from the North Pole to visit with everyone.

DAYS 'TIL CHRISTMAS

  • Then I'll talk about Christmas coming soon, how many days it is until Christmas, and all of the excitement that comes with it.

STORIES FROM THE NORTH POLE

  • Next I usually share some stories from the North Pole about the elves and reindeer. These stories are unique and engage everyone

NAUGHTY OR NICE?

  • Next I talk about the Naughty list and the Nice list. I have an app on my iPad that "scans fingerprints (it doesn't really scan them, it just looks like it) and connects to the North Pole database to see if each person is on the nice list." Of course all the kids are always on the nice list but one or two of the adults might not be. The kids always get a big kick out of that.

READ A STORY

  • Next I'll read a story. I have several to choose from. Some people like the tradition of reading a Christmas story. Others choose to skip this in favor of unique Stories from the North Pole as described above. Time permitting, both options can be done within the same home visit. See the list of book options below.

Captain Bling's Christmas Plunder

An exciting pirate Christmas adventure that starts off with the pirates on the naughty list but redeeming themselves by helping Santa.

Are You Grumpy Santa?

Santa is having a bad day but it gets much better when someone does something nice for him.

Santa's Favorite Story

A faith-based story that will help you discover the true meaning of the holidays as Santa Claus retells the story of the first Christmas.

CHRISTMAS WISH LISTS

  • Next, Santa loves to have the children sit on his lap and share all of the things they would like to have for Christmas. This is a great time for Santa to have some one-on-one time with each child.

PICTURES GALORE

  • And of course, Santa is available for all of the pictures you want - individual pictures, group pictures, silly pictures, etc.

SANTA'S TOY BAG

  • If you have presents that you would like to have Santa deliver to your children and family, I am happy to do so. 

TIME TO SAY GOODBYE

  • Of course, there's lots to do at the North Pole so Santa can't stay long. The typical visit usually takes about 45 minutes, depending on how many people attend and how interactive everyone is. I can stretch longer if necessary.

* FAITH BASED OPTIONS

  • If you and your family are interested in faith based options, I have a couple to choose from.

    • I have a book called "Santa's Favorite Story" which tells the story of Jesus' birth.

    • I can also talk about some of the spiritual symbolism in the Candy Cane.

 I'm certainly open to discussing other ideas if you have them. If you have any questions or if you would like to book your home visit, please contact me ASAP! My calendar fills up quickly.
