Stories From Santa® is a way for us to bring joy to children everywhere.

We want to share happiness, just like Santa does.

About Jim From

Santa Jim spent 20 years in the convention center business, working with such great shows as the Ice Capades, Elvis Presley, and the Rolling Stones.  


He retired from show business after 20 years to become a square dance caller and also played in local bands that visited retirement homes and local events.


When in costume, Jim looks like Santa. So he spent 15 years playing Santa Claus for his family and many of the Salvation Army Rescue Missions in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. This caused him to see an opportunity to bring the same joy to many more children with a special gift of special messages from St. Nick.
