The concept of "giving from the heart" goes
back to the days of St. Nicholas, the origin of Santa Claus.
For me, Christmas is not about
one day of the year, it’s about bringing this spirit all year long.

where ever I may be.
Allow me bring this spirit to
your Holiday event this year. We will sing the old Christmas carols

corporate or home party, or a
parade on your agenda. Do you have a sick child who would benefit
from a visit from Santa, or perhaps having an early Christmas for a
terminally ill family member. Again, being Santa Claus is a
year long, daily event.

the children. For the adults, I want to remind them of the real
person: St. Nicholas. My beard is real as is my heart-felt spirit.
