Will you be flying Santa Claus over my house this year?

Unfortunately, we have had to retire Santa and his Reindeer.  After almost 40 years of bringing fun and joy to 3 generations, Santa reached the end of his aviation service life.  we have thoroughly ejoyed giving Santa a lift around Ventura County, and we hope the many memories we all have of him visiting your homes and families will last another generation.

We thank all of you for your encouragement and support of “Sants in Lights” for all these years.
