He goes by the name Santa Patrick, and just like the big guy his beard and belly full of jelly are the real thing.

Patrick Kilby lives in New York Mills Minnesota as a woodworker and casket maker, but this time of year he gears up to be Santa to the stars, and also plays Santa Claus for the Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall with the Rockettes.

Kilby began his journey as Santa's Helper a few years ago, he liked it so well he got himself an agent, and now he is "Big Time." Besides his gig in NYC he has also been hired by many celebrities to be their own personal Santa for parties...like Whoopi Goldberg. Apparently If you are authentic enough you can make quite a bit of money on the side this time of year.
