Twinkle lights and snowflakes, elves and candy canes. Hot cider and cocoa on a cold winter morning...and Santa Claus!
The Campbell Church of Christ is gearing up for their annual Breakfast With Santa, where over 400 moms, dads, grandparents and kids are served a hot breakfast while enjoying the North Pole and photos with Mr. Claus.
Over 100 volunteers get to work as early as 5:30am, while others have toiled into the night creating a veritable winter wonderland and delightful backdrops for photos with Santa.
As guests arrive, they are greeted by friendly Helper Elves who direct them to a comfortable waiting area where families enjoy holiday crafts, or sip cocoa and cider. When seats are available, guests are guided to the main banquet room and greeted by Mrs. Claus, where they can enjoy breakfast, time for a photo with Santa, and a reading of Santa's favorite Christmas story. As guests depart, they are presented with a framed copy of their photo with Santa.
Breakfast With Santa is offered the first Saturday in December every year, and is a gift to the community from the Campbell Church. While free, reservations are required and available seatings fill up quickly.
To make a reservation, call 408.378.4900, x228. Seatings begin as early as 7:20am and go through 10:30am. Mid-morning seatings typically fill up first. Families are seated restaurant-style, at tables of eight, and breakfast is served from a buffet. It is suggested that guests arrive five minutes before their reservation time, and allow 45 minutes to an hour for their visit. Reservations are taken until all available seats are filled, or until November 23, whichever comes first.
Breakfast With Santa will be Saturday, December 1. The Campbell Church is located at 1075 West Campbell Avenue between San Tomas Aquino and San Tomas Expressway. For more information about the Campbell Church, please visit their website or find them on Facebook.
