What if I need to change or cancel?
Sometimes things don’t go as planned. If for some reason you need to change the date and/are time of the scheduled event contact Santa John ASAP. See if the event can be moved to a later time that day, or if it has to be moved to a different date and time. Please understand sometimes the calendar is too full to make the required change. In the event that it can not be moved then the only option is to cancel the event. If an event has to be cancelled for any reason the deposit will be refunded minus a $10.00 booking fee.

How early will Santa John arrive to the event?
It is Santa John’s policy to always be prompt and on time. For large events like corporate parties and tree lightings Santa will be approximately +15 minutes early.
In the case of home visits Santa could be +/- 15 minutes and that is due to the time of year and the location and distance between each home visit.
Rest assured you will get your full time with Santa John.
Does Santa John require any breaks?
Yes, but only at events over one hour in length then Santa requires a 10-minute break every hour. With that being said due to Santa’s Traditional North Pole outfit it is necessary to have periodic breaks. If the event is located indoors, it is recommended that the location be cool and comfortable approximately 70 degrees. It is assumed that all events will be indoors, or that arrangements have been made if the event is held outdoors, and therefore cancellations due to inclement weather are not accepted.
What will Santa be wearing?
Santa will be wearing his traditional suit with black leather boots, and a snow-white beard. However, Santa does have a few different kinds of outfits, and suits that you may choice from. When you are discussing the event you may talk with Santa about sending you pictures of his different outfits.
Does santa bring a chair or supply a backdrop where we can take photos?
Due to the nature of things like home visits where Santa is there only for an hour it is in the best interest of the client to decorate an area preferably around the Christmas tree are the fireplace.
At large event that covers a couple of hours it can be arranged for Santa to drop off, and set up a backdrop and chair that the client can further decorate at their convenience. Please understand if you require this there is a additional fee for the equipment and Santa’s time. Call Santa to discuss details.
