It’s difficult for children with special needs to enjoy visiting Santa at the mall or in other crowded settings. Often standing in long lines, being berated with bright lights and surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the holiday can easily overwhelm them. I’ve acquired the skills, training and the heart to be the Santa they need, sensitive to each child. I believe every child is important and should be able to enjoy this very special experience in a quiet, safe and relaxing environment. Special needs children deserve to create a positive forever-memory with Santa too.
The Polar Express Experience
I’ve had the pleasure of being Santa on the Polar Express here in Tuolumne County’s Railtown 1897. Thousands of boys and girls come with their families to relive the magical journey of the Polar Express after the 2004 animated children’s film. Each year, during our hour-long train ride to the North Pole, I have the honor of giving the first gift of Christmas - the silver bell.
