We're in this pandemic together, HO HO HO! And, a heart-warming, Christmasy chat with Santa Claus is an experience no good kid should have to miss out on.

So, this year, Santa has an entire snowglobe as his face mask. While he stays behind a clear barrier, you can stand outside of the snowglobe to talk to him and take your own pictures, etc. Bring your camera or cell phone - and maybe even a friendly photographer if you want a pic with the entire family. (Sorry, because of Covid-19, Santa's Helpers cannot handle your phone.)

However, we are outside, so you can take your masks off while snapping pics. Since our line can sometimes get long and there is some local pedestrian traffic, we ask that you wear masks while waiting in line or talking to Santa. We will also be maintaining the usual 6ft of social distancing between families.

Keep scrolling down for the details, but check out all the attention Santa is getting this year (and this is just the tip of the iceberg) - HO! HO! HO!

WHERE: Greenwood Ave N and 76th St in Seattle, 98103

WHEN: Every day until Dec. 23rd, from 11a to 5:30p - with possible extended hours closer to Christmas Day, as needed. Santa will also take a lunch break sometime around 2-2:30, give or take a few minutes one way or the other as breaks in the line allow for.

Additionally, because there is more than one reason for this beautiful holiday season, all day during Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, a nativity will be on display in the snowglobe instead of Santa - all are welcome to drive by for viewing or stop by for more photos as you wish. No helpers will be present.

Santa, Mrs. Claus and all their various Elves & Helpers are committed to continuing this tradition of helping others during the season as long as possible - in loving memory of Allena Gabosch who we lost this year due to cancer. A long-standing Seattle icon, Alena was the Earth angel who originally inspired us to start this tradition and helped us to keep it going for a decade and a half.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Peace on Earth Goodwill Toward All!
