About Santa Ed Taylor

I’ve seen blessed with the spirit, love, and looks of the most recognized figure in the world, Santa Claus, and I embrace it fully.

I truly believe I’ve been chosen to help make the world a better place by sharing the spirit of Christmas all year long. 

Since 2003, I’ve performed as one of the premiere natural real bearded Santa Claus in the nation. I’ve performed in Los Angeles, California and Ashland, Oregon at far too many varied events to mention.

I’ve appeared at events for Mattel Toys, Facebook, Riot Games, JibJab Media, the LA Rams, Lakers & Clippers and many dozens of others. I’ve appeared at many huge community events including Tree Lighting’s for the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, the US Air Force, the “Grand Illumination” in Ashland, Oregon with over 10,000 people in attendance.

Santa is hearty, warm and charming, with ‘natural’ white hair and beard, rosy red cheeks, a twinkle in his eyes, and a magical laugh.

Microsoft Santa in Los Angeles. In 2011 Santa Ed is asked to appear for Microsoft in LA, the rest, as they say, is history. Early in 2012 Santa Ed is signed by an Agent and does on “spec spot” in addition to many personal appearances. In 2013 Santa Ed made his national TV debut on the MTV program Ridiculousness and well as many appearances in Los Angeles, Hollywood and Beverly Hills, California. These appearances include the Lakers, the Clippers, Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills, Century City Mall, Mattel Toys, Marina City Club, Big Strike USA, Torrance Airport and many others. In 2014 Santa Ed was the national spokesperson for Hello Santa, was featured in a national TV commercial for Band Aide and made dozens of appearances in and around Los Angeles.

Now Santa Ed is a regular in Hollywood and the greater Los Angeles area with many appearances on national TV under his belt as well as a growing number of national and local TV commercials.

Santa and Mrs. Claus enjoy bringing smiles to faces of all ages, appealing to large and small groups of believers ranging from special needs children, to pre-school through high school children, to senior citizens.
