There’s no denying that Santa Claus is one of the most recognizable faces of Christmas cheer. Normally, the only times that kids will get a chance to see him are when they give him their list and when he comes to visit on Christmas Eve. But that’s all changing this year.
Now, families are invited to Breakfast with Santa on Saturday, Dec. 2 at Malawi’s Pizza. Santa will be accepting wishlists, so make sure the kids are nice, not naughty!
Breakfast with Santa
Mark your calendars, and head to Spotsylvania Towne Centre for Breakfast with Santa. Parents can register for the event Nov. 14–28. To register, come by the Customer Service Center, located by Bath and Body Works.
The breakfast will take place Dec. 2 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. The cost for the event is $7 per person, and it includes a Pizzetta with egg and cheese (up to three toppings can be added) and a kids’ drink with free refills. You must bring cash for admission, so make sure to swing by the ATM before you come. If this sounds like something your little ones would enjoy, don’t wait to sign up. Space is limited, so get in now before spots are gone!
Along with enjoying a delicious breakfast with an unusual guest, patrons are invited to bring new or gently-used shoes for people in need. Saxon Shoes will be at Breakfast with Santa accepting donations for those in need of a good pair of shoes this season. After dining and donating, make sure to stop by the Saxon Shoes location in the shopping center. You’ll find a huge selection of men’s, women’s, and children’s shoes. It’s the perfect time to upgrade your wardrobe or find a gift for anyone on your list.
Santa Claus Around the World
Americans aren’t the only ones who know Santa Claus. In countries around the world, this figure of Christmastime has gone by many different names. He is Père Noël in France and Kerstman in the Netherlands. Even older than these traditions is the legend of St. Nicholas. Legend has it that this man was originally named as a Patron Saint of Giving, which explains his current-day role as the giver of Christmas gifts. In Europe, gifts were at one time given on Dec. 6, and even today the German Nikolaus comes to bring sweets, fruits, and small presents to children on the 6th.
