Hi, I'm Richard Washington, "Elf Without Jingles" in that savage land called New York City, and #1 fan of the Alexander and Ilya Salkind Production "Santa Claus: The Movie." For more than 30 years, I've been a Professional Believer in Santa Claus -- and now, I can show you how to believe in the Jolly Old Elf, too! You can hire me for private parties, corporate parties, photo ops and meet-n'-greets, video interviews and media footage! I can also be there for ribbon-cutting events, Christmas tree-lighting ceremonies, etc. If you have senior citizen and/or assisted living facilities, I can visit those, too. If you're a parent and/or caregiver, business owner, event planner, or simply an interested individual wanting to learn more, I invite you to phone or e-mail me, and we'll discuss whatever plans you might have for Santa's New York City Representative. The asking fees can range from $150 and $300 per gig (I can, however, be flexible; you need only tell me how much you're willing to pay); my only requirements are that you can tolerate Santa's "religious" connections, and that, when I show up, I'll likely be already dressed in the full Santa suit, ready and rarin' to go! And let's get one other thing straight, as well: Serious enquiries only! Any immature attempts to hire me will neither be tolerated nor considered (I do have my standards, you know, and, as a major supporter of the Santa Claus Oath, I try to keep things family-friendly.)
And one last thing: If you plan on following in my Santa footsteps, always remember: let the kid use his/her imagination first! That way, he or she will be able to speak with you in a calming, gentle, unafraid and friendly way.
Well, that's basically all I can tell you about myself. As for my Santa Claus adventures, that's up to you.....
