’Twas the day before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a… “Oh no! We forgot to take the kids to see Santa Claus this year! Quick, grab your coats, hats, gloves, scarves, handwarmers, water bottles and snacks, it’s going to be a long afternoon…”
Did I make you sweat like Frosty in the greenhouse? Not to worry; there are still many opportunities to visit Santa and avoid spending hours in line. For a memorable afternoon of fun in a cozy and warm setting, plan a visit to Santa’s Christmas House in McHenry. Christmas cheer awaits your family as you experience a personalized visit with Santa Claus in his very own house. Christmas characters will greet you upon entering this festive space and will tell you about your upcoming Santa experience. You might even get a chance to meet Mrs. Claus or Santa’s favorite elf as they give you cookies!
