Santa checking his Nice List

Santa John is as close to the real deal as it gets!

He is very professional, excellent with children (and parents), has many wonderful ideas and really knows what he is doing. We get many compliments from our customers when we have him in our store.

A Premier Santa

It may have started as a small neighborhood gathering, but 15 years later Chilson, 72, has become Longmont's premier Santa Claus.

John is the best Santa in the area.

He is professional, kind, and gentle as Santa. Combine that with a great storytelling style and detailed knowledge of all things Santa and you can't go wrong! During the holidays seeing Santa can be intimidating to young kids. John knows just how to keep them at ease and engage them in the wonder of the season.

Santa (John) paid a surprise visit and was truly amazing.

He was wonderful with the children and even had the undivided attention of all of the adults.Santa did a wonderful job of planning his visit and arrived at the exact time that we had agreed upon.


He truly pays attention to each and every detail. The names of our grandchildren were printed in his "Nice" book and brought the biggest smile from our 5 year old grandchild. His wonderful stories are still talked about today!

The most memorable thing from his visit was when the 6 year old told us "That was the REAL Santa because his beard was stuck in his skin like our eyebrows!" 


We plan on making the Santa visit an annual event for our grandchildren and would highly recommend John Chilson!
