Handy Hints for a Visit from Santa

 

1. Have your camera/s ready. 

2. Reserve a special parking place for Santa.  It should be as close as possible to where he is visiting. 

3. A host should meet Santa when he arrives: to assist him; to show him where to park; to help load any presents into his special “Santa” bag; and  to escort him to the location of the event. 

4. Have your gifts ready.  Presents should be well labeled. We suggest a large black marking pen and writing directly on the gift, as tags can easily fall off.  All packages should fit into one 35-gallon trash bag.  He will transfer the gifts to his “official” Santa Bag. 

5. Get everyone together, before Santa enters.  Timing is everything.  You have scheduled Santa for a set amount of time, which begins the minute he arrives.  

6. Have a sturdy chair for Santa to sit in.  Folding chairs and low chairs (the one’s you sink into) are not good.  

7. Place the Chair near your Christmas tree or in a holiday setting.  Your photos will have more impact when the background has a festive look.  Leave a foot or two between the chair and the tree or wall.  This will allow room for others to gather around and behind Santa’s chair for group photos.  Fireplaces do look nice but remember putting Santa too close to a real fire is not good for his comfort.

8. Think about photos with everyone.  Yes, some teenagers might think it is too childish, to have a photo with Santa.  Don’t worry; Santa can stand up for a “buddy” photo.  What about grandma and grandpa?  Take a photo with Santa and Grandma Hugging.  And Santa can take group photos with all the ladies or a “Team” photo with the guys.  And yes!  Santa loves “Selfies!”   

9. Welcoming the Guests is probably one of the best ways to use Santa at a corporate, or all-employee, event.  Santa can be at the entrance to your event, just past your registration or check-in table.  He can officially welcome everyone to the party and invite them to have a picture taken at that time.  This is the best time to take photos of the employees and guests as everyone is arriving and  looking their best. 

10. For businesses, Santa can mingle and visit tables, after all of the guests arrive and if there is any time left for the period you have booked him.   He generally goes from table to table to say hello and to pose for group photos, etc.
