PBS story about Christmas City Santa



Ryan - Ryan Matz Photography

" I am telling you all, Christmas City Santa is the real Santa! Watching him with my kids and every family who came to my  studio yesterday made us all believe once again in Santa and the spirit  of Christmas. We all have gifts to give this world and Christmas City Santa's is the  gift of joy, wonder and all things that Santa is.  My family thanks you,  my clients thank you!"  - Ryan Matz, Ryan Matz, Ryyn Matz Photography


Dennille - parent of two

 "My 4-year-old was very nervous around Santa in previous visits, but as soon as she saw the Christmas City Santa she felt at ease. So much so, that she actually went back up to him an hour after she got her photo with him just to talk some more. He was warm, engaging and kind. He made her feel special and also reminded her to be a good big sister which I appreciated! We look forward to visiting him again next year, and highly recommend him as THE Santa to hire for your office holiday parties, special family gatherings, etc.”  


Diane - Penn State Alumni Relations


"Christmas City Santa made an appearance at our annual children's holiday party.  We had approximately 75 children and he did a wonderful job of making the little ones "at ease" by interacting with the entire group first, asking them "Santa Trivia" questions, and walking around the room.  

Once the kids were comfortable, he took his seat and started having individual conversations.  He photographs great, he's extremely patient, kind, and concerned about hearing what the children have to say.

He's precious and I strongly recommend him!"


Adam - parent of three


"Christmas City Santa not only shares the facial characteristics of Jolly Ol' St. Nick, he exemplifies all that is good about the Christmas season. His demeanor and passion for the role are paralleled only by Santa himself!  Christmas City Santa made my family and most importantly my children, feel welcomed and engaged during his home visit. No detail was spared; from the "individualized research" in advance of the visit to the coal for dad which brought a laugh from the kids. We will cherish the visit made by Christmas City Santa and most certainly will make similar requests in the coming years."
