Let’s delve into qualities, skills, and dedication required to be a Santa character and help create magical, unforgettable memories for all. 

A Genuine Love of Christmas

To be a Santa character at Scene to Believe, you’ll need a genuine love for the holiday season and the joy it brings to people of all ages. 

This means embracing the spirit of giving, embodying kindness, and maintaining a positive demeanor throughout the long hours of spreading holiday cheer.

A Jolly Nature

Santa Claus is recognised by his iconic features: a full white beard, rosy cheeks, and a round belly that shakes like a bowl full of jelly. But you don’t need to possess any of these features  to be a Scene to Believe Santa character.

All you need to be a Santa character is the ability to capture the essence of Santa’s warm and friendly nature, regardless of your natural physical attributes.
