Ho-Ho-Home is where it all began.

At first, Danny began his work as Santa with family and close friends. Now, his work has grown to include department stores and professional photoshoots. Additionally, Danny happily fills the role of Santa on a regular basis while out and about. Believe it or not, Danny says children regularly stop him in the grocery store or while out on a walk and ask him if he's Santa. “Of course, he replies!”

His authentic white hair and beard make him the real deal and children can spot him a mile away. Kindly, Danny is always prepared to step into his alter ego at a moment's notice.


Danny Jones loves being "the real Santa" and is happy to chat with children all year long! The Brave Files Podcast.

Santa School (no joke!)

You didn't think just anyone could be Santa Claus, did you? Danny annually attends the C.W. Howard Santa Claus School in Midland, Michigan. It’s the oldest Santa school in the world and that is pretty magical.

The school teaches Santas from all over the world, as a result, these are the best of the best. Training covers everything from speaking and mannerisms to proper health and exercise. Hours upon hours of lifting children and wearing a fuzzy suit can be extremely strenuous, believe it or not.

Personally, we are glad Santa is taking good care of himself!

Giving is Good:

Danny is proud to support Bartow County Shop with a Hero. The organization provides hundreds of local children with the gifts and joy they deserve at Christmas while allowing them to experience it with Bartow County local public safety officials. The program runs solely off of donations made by the public, so we encourage you to check out their work here.
