Santa Chuck Lee believes Christmas is All about the Mystery and the Magic! A DFW area icon, he and his Mrs. Claus have been bringing smiles to little faces for almost ten years.
Santa Chuck has a unique philosophy. He believes in relationships and encourages children to be kind and strong, rather than focused on gifts. As parents listen in on their children’s interactions with Santa, they find Santa is more concerned with how the child fits into their home, with friends, family, school, and neighborhood, than he is with presents. He looks at their hearts and considers how to help children make the world a better place. Santa desires to provide an example for children by being strong, fit, healthy and agile. He is a health-conscious Santa who also encourages children to read. Additionally, he carries the Christmas Spirit and the Magic of Santa with him to share with children and adults alike!
Although Santa Chuck Lee has an impressive client list, during those magic moments, each child is the most important item on his list. Everyone who Sees will Know and Believe.
During the year, Santa Chuck is a master craftsman, lovingly forging high-end banjos in his workshop for musicians all over the world, 780 to date. Santa is described as an “Artist, Craftsman and Skilled Maker of Toys”. Santa Chuck personifies all that and more.
Before banjos, Santa Chuck was a Master Plumber & Business Owner, licensed to do business in MD, DC, VA, NC, SC and of course Texas! He is a father of seven children and grandfather to eight grandchildren (and growing). He is a Martial Artist who holds a Black Belt in Shaolin Kung Fu and a Black Sash in Tai Chi.
