Santa Sam was amazing! He shows true spirit and sounds just like Santa. He is the real deal. :-) My boys even think he does all the Santa voice overs for cartoons he sounds so genuine. He came to our house in the evening and was very easy to communicate with to set up the appearance. He will even bring gis sack in and give toys upon the parents providing the gifts to give. He is definitely worth every penny. I couldn't be more pleased. I do intend on hiring him again as he was that amazing. When he cane, he was ringing his bells and he also sang Christmas songs with my boys. Vey very pleased mama here.
