…a lot like Christmas.

Bringing smiles to children’s faces is the sole reason Jim Claus dedicates the holiday season to playing Santa. What started 12 years ago has now turned into months of preparation and excitement ( he starts growing his real beard every May). Jim & Mrs Claus began spreading Christmas joy by decorating the exterior of their house and handing out candy canes in their driveway. It didn’t take long for word to spread, soon cars filled with children were lined down the street. All to see Jim Claus. The lights and candy canes were just an added bonus.

Fast-forward to today: Jim Claus spends the holiday season hustling to events, all to bring joy to children and families.

Happy Clients

We're on everybody's "Nice" list. Here's what some of them have to say:

We have had a Paint with Santa and Mrs. Claus event at Brushfire for the past seven years. Jim and Wendy are part of that tradition. We wouldn't think of using anyone else. The magic of Christmas truly shines through them. Everything about them is real from the beard to the clothing, to the warmth of the interaction with the children and parents. The joy on the kids (and parents) faces makes you feel like you are in the presence of the real Santa and Mrs. Claus. They are always professional, always on time and wonderful to work with. We highly recommend their services. Just don't use them on our day! :)

Our family believes that Jim is the real Santa. He is the best! He takes time with each child and makes each one feel special. We have seen him for 6 years and have loved each experience.

Alice Deck-Hawkins,

One of our favorite events at Stewart's Creek Elementary School is "Cookies with Santa." Santa, of course is the guest of honor, reading a story to each class, talking to students and posing for class photos, creating a magical experience for the children. Many students write him letters with their wishes...to them, THIS is the true Santa. He is always very personable with the children and answers their questions appropriately. We've heard some interesting questions and nothing surprises Santa. Many staff members pose with Santa as well. We always have several Santa photos in our yearbook from this magical event.

This Santa is the real deal! You won't find a more authentic Saint Nick anywhere. Jim is prompt, professional. kind and PATIENT. He genuinely enjoys children and they love him. We have successfully worked with Jim on multiple business events over the past several years and we wouldn't dream of using anyone else. He's just the best!

Melissa Toms, Photography Booking Client, Melissa Toms Photography

We are always so thrilled to host Santa in our home each year. The photos are incredible and the time he spends with our girls and their friends is special. Having Santa in our home with friends is a Christmas tradition! Santa (and sometimes Mrs. Claus) talk to children individually, share stories of life at the North Pole, but also take the time to share the true meaning of Christmas with the story of Jesus' birth. This past Christmas, they even helped a two-year old overcome her fear of Santa. It took a little time, but by the end of the night, she was sitting and laughing in his lap. We love this family and will continue to include them in our Christmas traditions.
