Handy Hints for a Visit from Santa
Have your camera/s ready.
Make sure Santa has a place, close to the event, to park.
For a big event, a host should meet Santa when he arrives to assist him.
Presents should be well labeled, writing directly on the gift as tags can easily fall off. All packages should fit into one 35-gallon trash bag.
Get everyone together before Santa enters. Plan it so Santa can make a "Grand Entrance".
Have a sturdy chair for Santa to sit in. Folding chairs and low chairs (the ones you sink into) are not good.
Place the Chair in a location for great photos. Be sure to leave a foot or two between the chair and the tree or wall so others can gather around Santa. Fireplaces are pretty, but Santa's suits are very warm. Yes, some teens might think it is too childish to have a photo with Santa but don’t worry: Santa can stand up for a “buddy” photo.
Place payment in a Christmas Card so you don't have to hand Santa a check or cash and risk a child witnessing the transaction.
Keep the children together and occupied to give Santa a few minutes for his departure.
