Sneak-a-Peek of Santa:
Wouldn’t it be great if on Christmas Eve, the parents, after hearing a noise wake up and quietly get the rest of the family up? They tip-toe through the house and then, from a secluded hiding place, they watch Santa put the presents under the tree, eat the cookies, drink the milk, read their Santa letters and anything else that is a tradition in their home. No one would dare talk to Santa because everyone knows that if Santa catches you watching him he will drop that small white feather he carries in his pouch and the household would fall back to sleep with no memory of seeing Santa. So the trick is just to watch and not get caught.

Sneak a Peek fee is $300.00. Sneak a Peaks occur from 12 AM until 5:30 AM December 25th They are very limited so please contact us early.

 
 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT “SNEAK-A-PEEK OF SANTA” VISITS:

What do we have to do to arrange a “Sneak-a-Peek” visit?

The most important thing is call us early. To do a proper “Sneak-a-Peek” requires a bit of preparation. It is a good idea to have at least seven or more days of lead time before Christmas Eve. I need to come to your house and preview the arrangements for Christmas. Obviously the children can’t be at home when this happens. It typically takes about 45 minutes to explain the process and gather the needed information about your Christmas traditions. The dean of the oldest Santa School in the nation, Tom Valent, says “Children remember sitting on Santa’s lap for their lifetime so make sure it’s special.” Now imagine what we are talking about here. Your children will be watching Santa work in their own home putting out their presents. Talk about a memory…. So please take this seriously and call us as early as possible so we can preview the house. We will call and find out when to come by.  

How old should my children be for a “Sneak-a-Peek”?

We only do a “Sneak-a-Peek” once for any family.  After all, you would never catch Santa twice.  Since this will be the one time your family has a visit like this we recommend that the children are 5 or older.  We did a visit for a family with a 4 and 6 year old.  The 6 year old thought it was incredible but the 4 year old had a little problem staying awake.  Remember, these visits go on all night so waking up your children may be an issue… if they are too young.
Now… how old should a child be? It really doesn’t matter. Sometimes we are in a home with a younger child who still believes and one who is past believing. The feedback that the parents share with us is that even the older children couldn’t believe what they were seeing. They were absolutely thrilled with the effect of Santa being in their home. What’s funny is the parents have told us that even though they knew who Santa was, they still felt the magic during the visit.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Special Delivery:
This is your chance to have Santa deliver that Special Gift that either couldn’t ride on the sleigh (such as a puppy) or was found on the floor of the sleigh when I returned to the North Pole  or any other gift that you feel deserves this treatment. I have made a delivery to two little boys who only found coal and twigs by their chimney. As they opened the door with tears in their sweet little eyes I explained that they had been on the naughty list but I’d changed my mind. Boy were they happy. Again this is a premium service $300.

HOAs and Country Clubs:

What better way to bring the families together in your HOA or Country Clubs than a visit from Santa Claus . This year let me work with you to make this a truly unique and enjoyable experience for your families. You provide the chair and the photographer and I’ll make them smile . 
Santa is also available for special visits throughout the year for storytelling or pool parties (yes Santa has a  bathing suit) or just to hang out as a Hawaiian Santa on vacation 

"Smart" Santa:

This is a premium option for HOAs Country Clubs or any group event where you have a line to see Santa. You’ve seen it in all the Santa Claus Movies. A child walks up to Santa and Santa knows their name, their age, their elf’s name, their pets, their families and all about their favorite gift and family traditions - you get the picture. Now through the wonders of technology, this truly amazing, magical Christmas Experience can be performed with your child(ren) using some of the most advanced electronics and a very small ear bud. Santa is hooked up to an assistant that provides the answers to things only the real Santa would know. The electronics are an important part of this effect but the most important part is my assistant that is able to mingle and without detection collect this info and relay it to me. As a general rule, it takes three qualifiers for a child to know they are in the presence of the real Santa. Our favorite qualifiers are the child’s name, their age, and the favorite gift I brought them last year but something they need to work on or have accomplished recently work well too. You won’t believe their reactions to the Smart Santa.  Bring the Magic of Christmas back to life for them . This service requires my assistant who gets an additional $100 per hr.
