Santa Claus has rosy cheeks, a big belly, a snow-white beard, a hearty laugh, and is full of holiday spirit. If you can look and act the part, then contact us.

Being Santa Claus is hard work. Santas have to be good actors and must stay in holiday character at all times. Santa’s roles at the mall is to sit on his throne surrounded by his elves and play the part of Santa for hundreds of children.

At every mall, there are children waiting for hours for the opportunity to sit on Santa’s lap and tell him what they want for Christmas. You listen to them, pose for photographs, smile with your white teeth and send them on their way. You wear your big red suit, floppy hat, and wire-rimmed spectacles, while you smile and talk to children. As kids sit on your lap, you ask them what they want for Christmas and if they’ve been good this year. Be sure to remember their names and never promise anything.

Kids are straight shooters so get ready for any number of crazy questions like what’s your favorite reindeer? How do you fit down my chimney when I don’t have one? What happens if your sleigh breaks down? Where do you go in the summer? Or how do you travel around the entire world in one night? You always have to be on your creative toes and be in character. Plus, be ready for kids to yank your beard.

If you think you have what it takes to be Santa, you should start to grow your beard as early as May or June.

Ultimately your job is to bring joy to children. Playing Santa is an important part of the holidays. So how’s your Ho-Ho-Ho loud, clear or soft? You must have a clean criminal record, must have finger prints taken, not have any DUI’s and be clean in every single way.
