Every year thousands of people send us letters asking us one question, “Is Santa Claus Real?”. We have personally met Santa and can tell you YES. But we want to take it a bit further and show you evidence of yesterday and today.
We know it is hard for some to believe. Especially those that are older and have lost that Christmas feeling. Let us show you the first picture of Santa and some of our work.
When was the first time we answered: Is Santa Claus Real?
The First Picture of Santa
The first image of Santa Claus was captured by mistake. In 1913 an Italian-American photographer accidentally proved that Santa Claus is Real. It was during a trapeze artist stunt, performed by Giuseppe Crudera, who was on top of the world’s tallest building in New York.
The building was named the Woolworth Building and it is still there today. This event took place on Christmas Eve but he didn't know that he captured the photo until many days later.
Enhanced Photo of Santa
The photographer thought he had a smear on his lens at the time of reviewing the negatives. He almost threw away the negative until he enhanced the picture and spotted Santa Claus. This man became the first person the be recognized by the President of the United States as an official Santa Spotter.
Furthermore, it became his life goal to help the children of the world track Santa Claus. And he is the reason we can answer the question: Is Santa Real?
Further Evidence - Is Santa Claus Real?
After the famed photographer spotted Santa Claus in his picture he went out to spot Santa again. He knew the best time of year to spot Santa Claus was on Christmas Eve so he prepared all year for that day.
17 years after he took his first photo of Santa he spotted him again. As a result the picture above is the photo that was on the front page of every newspaper in the world on Christmas morning 1940.
Many years later the tradition of tracking Santa claus was passed down from generation to generation. Until 2009 when the tradition was passed down to Pasquale and Autumn Murena.

What If I Can't See Santa?
Children of all ages can track Santa Claus on your own during the month of December. Even if you cannot see him with your eyes. Santa’s job is to spread the spirit and joy of Christmas every chance he gets. When he delivers this gift of Christmas our hearts open up.
The spirit and joy of Christmas is everywhere. Helping a friend who is having a hard time with school work. Or saying hello to the new student at school. These acts of kindness are the spirit and joy of Christmas.
When these moments happen you can be certain that Santa is there. Even if you don’t physically see Santa listen for the jingle of his sleigh bells. Or the sounds of reindeer hoofs followed by the faint echo of Santa’s laugh. "Ho, ho, ho!"
Santa Claus is in our lives and hearts everyday of the year if we allow him in.
Merry Christmas Santa Spotters and remember to let the world know, “I Believe!”

(I hope you respond) Dear santa, I think I have been nice ( but your the judge ) and I would really like a Apple Mac Pro, and a scooter, some ever after high dolls, barbies, clothes, shoes ( specially high heels), makeup, and some cute hats and mittens. I hope our elf at school feels better after eating all the candy in the jar at school ( please put in a good word for me! And ask him if he likes the shirt ). Happy Holidays, Elena S.
Merry Christmas, Elena! That is a nice Christmas list.
Is Santa Claus real? It’s a question as old as time.
It’s not a problem to still believe, it’s not a crime.
Despite all the scrooges and old christmas goofs
We can all still believe in Santa, even without proof
Just remember, no matter how old, big or small
never forget, MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!
Merry Christmas y’all
Beautiful poem Dakota, Merry Christmas!
Santa is not real
Hi Meg, we work with 15 of Santa’s elves to help spot him but in the North Pole there are too many to count. They work very hard and move fast so it’s hard to get a good count.
100% saw him last year
I knew it!
my mom caught a photo of santa on christmas
