Santa Andy says, “I’d never thought of being Santa, until a little girl approached me while shopping with her Grandmother. She was so excited to see Santa telling me her Christmas list and promising to leave out cookies. That was in 1993 without a suit. Black pants, red shirt, graying hair and real beard, with blue eyes and a warm smile…I soon became a casual Santa.”
“From being reluctant at first, I now embrace the joy I see and the love I receive making memories for children and the gleam in the eyes of Seniors as they recall the first time they met Santa. It has been said you never grow old if you never grow up, you need to Always Believe, Santa has that kind of Magic. It is truly an honor to Be a Santa.”
