Santa Claus NYC Tour

Santa Claus grew up in New York City! Grandson of St. Nicholas of Myra, Son of Dutch SinterKlaas, Santa Claus was summoned to New York City to promote the 3Ps.

Peace (tolerance and family-oriented), Patriotism, and Prosperity (gift giving). Surprised? Me, too! Santa Claus' story could only happen here in NYC.

Let's paint the town red, and celebrate the jolly old man's New York City history, and how we helped spread Santa's fame across America and the world.

This three-and-a-half hour tour, suitable for children, believers in Santa, and history-loving adults, explores Santa Claus' youth in New York City, where he grew up from elfish youth to rotund man who brings joy and generosity to the holiday season.

Let's see where his first factory, electric Christmas trees, and his reindeer carrying sacks of toys were first seen and described.

Tour is based on the upcoming book, "Interview with Santa Claus," by Jared Goldstein, your Tour-Guide.

This is a history tour for adults who love Santa Claus history, most of which happened along this tour's route. Little Santa Believers will enjoy the creative non-fiction, magical-realism stories about Santa's development. Parents will be informed, surprised and entertained.

This is not a tour with lots of puppets or props. Bring your own if you want! There will be walking, and stairs to subway rides. Vehicular transportation can be arranged, but Santa's sleigh is unavailable.

We'll have fun: Guaranteed.
