Communicate with Santa Roger on the type experience you are looking for
Chances are, you’re not looking to get on Santa’s naughty list. Make sure you communicate with Santa roger in advance about what type of experience you want to have. You may even want to provide examples, like specific lines that will get extra points or jokes or anecdotes that you'd like him to tell. The more descriptive and detailed your request is, the better equipped he'll be at making your day special.
Make Sure Santa has room to park his sleigh
When you book a visit from Santa, make sure he has plenty of room to land his sleigh on your property. After all, no one wants their chimney blocked by an airborne sleigh. That might cause real mayhem during Christmas morning! Make sure you’ve got enough space in front of your home to ensure that there’s plenty of room for good old Saint Nick.
Keep background noise at a minimum during Santa's visit
During his visit, you don’t want background noise to distract from your child’s time with Santa. A loud TV can make your child feel like they need to scream their question to be heard, which might make them uncomfortable and shy around Santa. Ideally, you should turn off all electronics and even put a be quiet please sign on your front door during Santa’s visit.
Tips for getting good photos
Be sure to have your camera ready when Santa arrives! There are lots of great photo opportunities—with family, with friends, and even with kids. And don’t forget about pets, too! When taking photos with Santa himself, keep in mind that his lap is popular among all ages. If you have more than one child who wants to sit on his lap, it’s perfectly fine to take turns. Make sure you have a sturdy chair and place Santa near the Christmas tree. Also have a clear background for pictures you'll treasure for years to come.
Have Santa's payment ready and be discrete
If you haven't paid Santa in advance, you don't want the kids wondering why you're paying Santa. The easiest solution is to place the payment in a Christmas card then just hand him his Christmas card when he arrives.
Santa Roger is committed to giving your family or business a magical, personally tailored experience that will leave you with the best Christmas memories ever.
