It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. The lights are out, the trees are up and decorated, and the parking lot at the mall is constantly full. Personally, I love this time of year. It’s the only cold portion of the year that I don’t actually mind. Plus there’s so many events and fun things to do to get you into the holiday spirit. You can bake cookies or you can watch holiday movies. You can listen to Christmas music. And everybody out there with children will know, you have to visit Santa.

Santa, he’s a really busy guy right now. Not only is he in the middle of making his list and checking it twice and preparing all the toys for the big night, he’s doing meet and greets like its nobody’s business. I have to hand it to the guy. When everybody else wants to slow down with work after Thanksgiving, he is busting his back. But since he’s doing so many meet and greets, that means parents, you’ve got a lot of options.

You can take your kids to the mall to meet him and get pictures. Or you could go to Six Flags to meet him. And while those are both fantastic options, it doesn’t give your kids a whole lot of time to spend with Santa. If you’re looking for an event that will provide that more that you’re looking for, look no further than Breakfast With Santa. And luckily for us, these events are all over Monmouth County. Breakfast with Santa is pretty self explanatory. But some offer crafts and gifts for the kids. And some also offer specialty cocktails for parents.

So if this sounds like the kind of event you’d like to bring your family to this holiday season, read on. I’ve put together a list of a bunch of local Breakfast with Santa events for you down below! If you go to any of these and take pictures, tag us! We’d love to see you pictures with Santa. Merry Christmas!
