7. Think about photos with everyone
Yes, some teenagers will shy away or think it is too childish to have a photo with Santa. But don’t worry: Santa can stand up for a “buddy” photo. What about Grandma and Grandpa? Take a photo with Santa and Grandma hugging. And, nothing is more fun than having Santa ask Grandpa if he’s been a good boy.
8. Gifts for Santa
Santa always appreciates tokens of appreciation. Instead of handing Santa cash directly, consider placing cash inside a Christmas card or envelope. As Santa departs, hand him the envelope and say, “Thank you Santa, and here is a Christmas card from all of us.”
9. Santa never breaks from his character
This is very important: Santa never breaks from his character. Please don’t say things to Santa such as: “Why you’re one of the best Santas I’ve ever seen.” Don’t ask questions about when he started playing Santa or where did he get his costumes. It’s very important that you treat Santa Opa Claus as Santa Claus and not as someone that plays Santa Claus. Please help keep the wonder of Christmas alive for your children and others.
