I started my adventure as Santa in 2008 when I came out of Party City with my first Santa suit and a woman who runs a class on breastfeeding newborns at a hospital asked if I was a professional Santa. I had never done it before but was excited to do it. I have been that class's Santa every year since. I have gotten more and more gigs the longer I have been Santa. I earned the title "Steve the Santa Man" from a young man that my wife and daughter were caregivers for. He blessed us with smiles and laughs the first time my wife described me as "Steve the Santa Man" so the title stuck. I would like to think that each year I become better Santa and more creative with the Christmas magic that I bring to the children.
