I am a real bearded Santa and as a model and representative of the jolly old elf himself, I take my appearance and presentation seriously. I am a retired middle school English grammar teacher and great with children of all ages. It was my love of children that drew me into teaching and so inspired me to become a Santa Claus. I am warm and friendly to everyone I meet while portraying Santa and throughout the year. As a professional Santa, my goal is to brighten your Christmas and Holiday Events, and bring good cheer to your Home, Private Parties, Office Parties, and Corporate and Community Events. I will star in your photo shoots, and even attend your Christmas in July events. I'm all in for meet and greets, sing along, and I love a good reading of "The Night Before Christmas."

Testimonials:
Our visit with Santa Doug was truly magical! Santa Doug captivated our family's attention from the moment he walked into the room. He was kind, professional and had the perfect answers to every single one of each child's questions about Santa and Christmas. He was amazing to watch! The gorgeous pictures our son and nephews had taken with Santa Doug were an added bonus. We can't wait to visit him again next Christmas. Thank you for a one-of-a-kind Santa experience!

From the moment Santa Doug arrived, it was such a delight! He entered our home and was immediately greeted by both children and adults. We sang Christmas songs and had so much fun together. He was extremely interactive and never broke character. He had little gifts for the kids and took time to read them a short story. The kids were absolutely hooked. He gave every one individual attention and made sure that everyone was happy. We were so amazed with Santa Doug and we will definitely have him back for years to come!

We’ve hired 4 diff Santa’s in the past 4 years and was disappointed every year ... this year we tried Santa Doug & finally a Santa that was just perfect!! Showed up on time .. Sang with the kids, read to them, took pics and mingled with all the guests! He even took the time to ask & listen to the kids “wish list”... everything Santa is supposed to do!!!

Amazing !!!!!! I would give Santa Doug 10 if they would let me. We had him at our Military Christmas Party. He got there early and stayed late so all the kids and families had time to sit with him and take pictures. I would recommend him to anyone and we will be using him for our Christmas party next year.
