Best Real Life Santas

New Mexico Enchanting Santas

The New Mexico branch of the International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santas has roughly a dozen members (plus five Mrs. Clauses) and performs around Albuquerque. But these aren’t just any Santa Clauses. As the name suggests their beards are as real as their Christmas spirit. Always willing to help out at malls charity events or even Cliff’s Amusement Park the New Mexico Enchanting Santas are all about spreading the holiday cheer. “I never shave I just trim” says Santa Skip Bleistein. “I joined the military when I was 17 and when I got out I just said I wasn’t going to shave anymore. But I could probably grow out a pretty decent Santa beard in about seven months.” Santa Skip started with the New Mexico Enchanting Santas about seven years ago when he took a Santa gig at Watermelon Ranch. Since then he has become a regular at events like the Twinkle Lights Parade and most recently the Cabela’s Christmas kickoff event.
