Mr & Mrs Claus

Black Hills Santa/Rapid City, SD

We are extremely proud that 2024  is our 27th Christmas bringing Santa & Mrs Claus to life. Nothing gives us greater joy than seeing children’s faces light up as they meet Santa and Mrs. Claus, either for the first time or the hundredth. Our commitment to excellence and our passion for Christmas are what sets us apart from the rest. Christmas is a special time of year for everyone, and it’s our mission to make it even brighter!

The Guy Behind the Beard

At 3 years old, Black Hills Santa (Jason Rednour-Yeary) visited Santa Claus Land in Santa Claus, IN, beginning  a passion for Christmas and Santa.  At 16, Jason portrayed Santa for the first time and, once he became a father, Jason regularly portrayed Santa for his children and other young family members before portraying Santa for the US Army, public libraries, and businesses. In 2021 Jason began portraying St Nicholas for area churches. Jason is a member of  ClausNet, a professional Santa community, where, in October 2019 and September 2022 Jason was selected as "Member of the Month". He holds an Associates of Santa Claus (International University of Santa Claus, (2018 and 2022), and degrees from Liberty Univ., Regent Univ. School of Law, and Anna Maria College, and is ASL fluent.  







The Lady Behind the Guy with the Beard

Mrs. Claus (Nicole) met Santa in high school and 33 years later, she keeps everything working properly at the North

 Pole. She has served as a Girl Scout leader, is a nanny, volunteers at the Piedmont Public Library, sets up angel trees in Black Hills communities in November, and manages the home. The twinkle in her eye and warm smile conveys the Mrs. Claus portrayal everyone expects.  Mrs. Claus has Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Southern Indiana. Santa and Mrs. C’s experience in working with children greatly benefits when we visit with families.

We believe it is our responsibility to carry forth the faith and Christian ideals that St Nicholas himself exhibited. 

“He took a child and stood him among them. Then he put his arms around him and said to them, “Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the One who sent me.” (Mark 9:36)---“How blessed are those who show mercy…”(Matt 5:7);--- “Let the children come to me, don’t stop them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these”(Matt 19:14).
