AKA: SANTA CECIL
How It Started
THE STORY OF HOW SLO SANTA CAME TO BE
When Christmas 2020 rolled around, it hit me: My newest grandchild wouldn't get Santa photos, a family tradition dating back to when I was a baby. Then, this hit me: I could be Santa. How hard could it be? Grow out my beard, get a suit and sit for some photos. Easy, right? I couldn't have been more wrong! As I began to dive deeper into the world of Santa Claus I learned that it's so much more than just wearing a suit and saying, "Ho, ho, ho!" The more I learned, the more passionate I became about encompassing the role of Santa. The photo here is a far cry from the Santa Claus I've morphed in to, but the photo of my granddaughter with me in the early Santa days is something I will always cherish.
The joy of the Christmas spirit is truly priceless. The magic of Santa is found in the twinkle of a child’s eye, the excitement of preparations, the anticipation of the big day, and shared childhood memories. I am honored to have the opportunity to bring that magic to your home, workplace, mailbox, and community.
