Meeting Santa at a local mall is a classic Christmas adventure! The wait is over now, as Santas have arrived in Burlington to spend time with the kids. They’ll have the chance to sit on Santa’s lap, chat with the elves, and snap a great photo!
If you think your child will be nervous, bring a familiar toy or blanket along so they can keep that comfort with them. Ask them what they will speak to Santa about for some practice and so that you know their wishes.
