If your kids have been exclusively sitting on the naughty list this year, a call from Santa might be just what they need to get on the nice list before Christmas.

Santa Bob, a professional Santa impersonator who’s been in the business for 20 years, will call and leave your child a personalized voicemail before Christmas.

Santa Bob’s resume is listed on his Santa of the Bay website, which details his experience doing voice work for movies, commercials and video games.

Here’s how to schedule a voicemail for your children:

  • Go to the Voicemail from Santa page on the Santa on the Bay website
  • Fill out the form with as much detail as possible
  • Hit submit
  • Pay attention to the guidelines for messages section while filling out the form

The cost for the service is $25 and can be paid via credit card or PayPal. Requests must be submitted before Dec. 21 for kids to hear Santa’s voice before Christmas day.

Santa Bob is local — he lives in Bay St. Louis and makes several appearances throughout the year. You may have seen him at Santa at the Snowflake Festival on Dec. 2, at Starfish Cafe on Dec. 9 or at the Kiln Library on Dec. 14

Santa Bob will also be talking to kids on the naughty and nice list at the Diamondhead Library from 6-8 p.m. Thursday.

Santa Bob also has a pretty groovy Instagram account.
