No matter how you celebrate the holidays, they will definitely be looking different this year. While 2020 may have canceled many fun, holiday traditions this year, one thing that hasn’t changed is getting the opportunity to meet the one and only Santa Claus. Whether it be virtually or in-person, there are still a few locations that are offering the chance for your little ones to see Santa and tell him what’s on their Christmas list.

For example, Macy’s has moved their annual Santaland event online, allowing kids to see Santa virtually while other places like the Onderdonk House and the Queens Center are following the state mandated social distancing guidelines and mask policies to protect their guests and themselves. Whichever way your children see Santa this year, the experience is sure to brighten their spirits and create lasting memories.
