Our philosophy,

We want to help spread the joy and wonder of the holidays to families. We honor all beliefs and respect all cultures. We do not promote any agenda other than spreading the spirit of the holidays. We do not charge money to bring Kristoff and Kelly Kringle to your event or have you attend our workshop. We provide opportunities to donate to a charity of your choice. We provide some suggested donation prices and charities. At no time will the Kringles have money go to them or through them.

The Kringles do not promise to deliver any items requested by a child, nor do they comment on if a child has been naughty or nice. All children are on our nice list. No person will be seated on a Kringle’s lap at anytime. Photos will be taken by the family members of the visitor. The Kringles will not maintain photos with children without the permission of the parent or guardian. Our top most concern is the safety and wellbeing of the child.

Mission Statement:

To preserve and foster joy, hope and giving during the holiday season to our community.


Son: "Dad, I think I'm old enough now. Is there a Santa Claus?."

Dad: "Ok, I agree that your old enough. But before I tell you, I have a question for you. You see, the “truth” is a dangerous gift. Once you know something, you can't unknow it.

Once you know the truth about Santa Claus, you will never again understand and relate to him as you do now.

So my question is: Are you sure you want to know?"

Brief pause...

Son: "Yes, I want to know"

Dad: "Ok, I'll tell you: Yes there is a Santa Claus"

Son: "Really?"

Dad: Yes, really, but he's not an old man with a beard in a red suit. That's just what we tell kids. You see, kids are too young to understand the true nature of Santa Claus, so we explain it to them in a way that they can understand.

The truth about Santa Claus is that he's not a person at all; he's an idea.

Think of all those presents Santa gave you over the years.

I actually bought those myself.

I watched you open them.

And did it bother me that you didn't thank me?

Of course not!

In fact it gave me great pleasure.

You see, Santa Claus is THE IDEA OF GIVING FOR THE SAKE OF GIVING, without thought of thanks or acknowledgement.

When I saw that woman collapse on the subway last week and called for help, I knew that she'd never know that it was me that summoned the ambulance.

I was being Santa Claus when I did that."

Son: "Oh."

Dad: "So now that you know, you're part of it. You have to be Santa Claus too now. That means you can never tell a young kid the secret, and you have to help us select Santa presents for them, and most important, you have to look for opportunities to help people. Got it?"

Help each other this Christmas🎄🎅 and...be kind ❤💕
