As I write this, I remember very well all of the beautiful people (and dogs!) I have had the honor to be photographed with in the past years.  I hope we can share a frame together in the future.  I know the smile on my face will last a lifetime. 

Sadly, 2020 is a different sort of a year, and I am not doing any personal visits, but instead doing a limited number of virtual visits with established customers. I will also continue to work in advertising as it comes along.

It's not just the Pandemic Panic, but a lot of other reasons that weigh into this decision after two decades as Santa. I hope you will understand, and instead of chuckling with me, spend Christmas 2020 with your family worshipping God. After all, he's the reason for the season.

This is not goodbye forever, but it is a year off for me and my family.

Love,

Santa Joe

Goodness, Santa Joe is ready for photos anywhere he goes!  This picture was taken at the national Santa Claus Convention for the Amalgamated Order of Real Bearded Santas in Branson, Missouri in 2006.  He does get further south than Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Minnesota, but it's rare.An amazing Real Bearded SantaGoodness, Santa Joe is ready for photos anywhere he goes!

An amazing Real Bearded Santa delighted to visit anytime, anywhere. SantaJoe - Parties, Television, Personal Appearances, Photographs & fun in Minneapolis, Saint Paul,& Minnesota, this picture was voted nicest photo of SantaJoe ever taken by his dogs.           

Reindeer are kind of messy, and Santa Joe doesn't like to bring them south to Minneapolis and Saint Paul,  but these two sweeties hold a special place in Santa Joe's heart.  And, they look good in watercolor.

 

The longer the Minnesota driveway, the more Santa Joe appreciates a warm winter.
