I hired Stanta for our family Christmas party. He was amazing. He has a real suit and a real beard. He's not a "knock off" santa at all. If I didn't know better, Id say he was the real thing :) We pre planned for him to give out presents that I gave to him outside of our house. All of the kids really enjoyed it. He was soo happy. You know its a great santa when the adults even want to sit on his lap! After giving out presents, Stanta talked to the kids and then walked around the party chatting with our guests. His presence in our home brought joy to everyone. It really was a great experience. We will definitely be hiring Stanta again.
