BREAKFAST with SANTA

Saturdays Thanksgiving to Christmas CLICK HERE for TICKETS

Every Saturday morning Santa welcomes all to share their holiday wish lists while he poses for family photos and shares a Continental Breakfast (see below). Then Santa and the Elves present ELFPROV, an interactive holiday themed comedy show for all ages. The morning ends with Santa leading a few songs before taking off to get ready for Christmas Eve.

Here is how each morning flows…

Lobby/Holding room opens at 9am. We don’t want early birds out in the cold.
House opens at 9:30.
Come early to meet Santa and take pictures. Bring your holiday wish lists and be ready to whisper in Santa’s Ear the #1 item on the list. Bring your own camera. Elves will help take family photos. We will also take pictures and post online for free download. We do not have printed pictures to take home. There is a continental breakfast served of mini rolls, donuts, muffins, yogurt, fruit, cheeses, coffee, juice and bottled water… Oh and of course Santa always has a few candy canes and other sweet options.

10am SHOWTIME!!! – ELFPROV

The Elves have a great show for all ages, creating original songs, stories and skits based on your suggestions. OK to take photo and video as your loved ones get on stage to participate….

10:45 Santa will lead a round of Carols. Hope all are warmed-up and ready to sing along. This helps all get higher up on the list of good boys and girls.

FYI The show often starts late when the show is sold out. Santa will not let the show start until every child in line has had a chance to say hello. But due to a busy holiday schedule, Santa cannot meet with late comers after the show so PLEASE be on time. Santa hates to disappoint the children because the parents were being naughty.

Angels We Have Heard On High Sing Along with Santa

Hark the herald angels sing
“Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled”
Joyful, all ye nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With the angelic host proclaim:
“Christ is born in Bethlehem”
Hark! The herald angels sing
” Glory to the newborn King!”

Christ by highest heav’n adored
Christ the everlasting Lord!
Late in time behold Him come
Offspring of a Virgin’s womb
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see
Hail the incarnate Deity
Pleased as man with man to dwell
Jesus, our Emmanuel
Hark! The herald angels sing
“Glory to the newborn King!”

Hail the heav’n-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings
Ris’n with healing in His wings
Mild He lays His glory by
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth
Hark! The herald angels sing
“Glory to the newborn King!”

FROM WIKI

Angels We Have Heard on High” is a Christmas carol of French origin in the public domain. The song commemorates the story of the birth of Jesus Christ found in the Gospel of Luke, in which shepherds outside Bethlehem encounter a multitude of angels singing and praising the newborn child.

The words of the song are based on a traditional French carol known as Les Anges dans nos campagnes (literally, “Angels in our countryside”) composed by an unknown author in Languedoc, France. That song has received many adjustments or alignments including its most common English version that was translated in 1862 by James Chadwick, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle, northeast England. The carol quickly became popular in the West Country, where it was described as ‘Cornish’ by R.R. Chope, and featured in Pickard-Cambridge‘s Collection of Dorset Carols.[1]

There is also a Scottish Gaelic (Gàidhlig) translation of the carol which is known as Ainglean chuala sinn gu h-ard (literally, “Angels We Have Heard on High”). This was translated into Gaelic by Iain MacMilan from James Chadwick’s English translation.

Angels We Have Heard On High

French

Les anges dans nos campagnes
Ont entonné l’hymne des cieux,
Et l’écho de nos montagnes
Redit ce chant mélodieux

Gloria in excelsis Deo

Bergers, pour qui cette fête ?
Quel est l’objet de tous ces chants ?
Quel vainqueur, quelle conquête
Mérite ces cris triomphants :

Gloria in excelsis Deo

Ils annoncent la naissance
Du libérateur d’Israël
Et pleins de reconnaissance
Chantent en ce jour solennel

Gloria in excelsis Deo

Cherchons tous l’heureux village
Qui l’a vu naître sous ses toits
Offrons-lui le tendre hommage
Et de nos cœurs et de nos voix

Gloria in excelsis Deo

Bergers, quittez vos retraites,
Unissez-vous à leurs concerts,
Et que vos tendres musettes
Fassent retentir les airs

Gloria in excelsis Deo

Jingle Bells Sing Along with Santa and Elves

LYRICS

Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
O’er the fields we go
Laughing all the way

Bells on bobtail ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight!

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way;
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

A day or two ago,
The story I must tell
I went out on the snow,
And on my back I fell;
A gent was riding by
In a one-horse open sleigh,
He laughed as there I sprawling lie,
But quickly drove away.

Now the ground is white
Go it while you’re young,
Take the girls tonight
and sing this sleighing song;
Just get a bobtailed bay
Two forty as his speed
Hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack! you’ll take the lead.

FROM WIKI

Jingle Bells” is one of the best-known[1] and commonly sung[2] American Christmas songs in the world. It was written by James Lord Pierpont (1822–1893) and published under the title “One Horse Open Sleigh” in the autumn of 1857. Even though it is now associated with theChristmas and holiday season, it was actually originally written for American Thanksgiving.[3][4] It has been claimed that it was originally written to be sung by a Sunday school choir; however, historians dispute this, stating that it was much too “racy” to be sung by a children’s church choir in the days it was written.

Deck The Halls

FROM WIKI

Deck the Halls” or “Deck the Hall” (which is the 1877 title) is a traditional Christmas, yuletide, and New Years’ carol. The melody is Welsh dating back to the sixteenth century[citation needed], and belongs to a winter carol, “Nos Galan”, while the English lyrics date to 1862.

The English lyrics first appeared (still called “Nos Galan”) in volume 2 of Welsh Melodies, a set of four volumes authored by John Thomas with Welsh words by John Jones (Talhaiarn) and English words by the Scottish musician Thomas Oliphant,[1] although the repeated “fa la la” goes back to the original Welsh “Nos Galan” and may originate from medieval ballads.[2] The song is in AABA form.[3] The series Welsh Melodies appears in four volumes, the first two in 1862, the third in 1870 and the final volume in 1874. As can be seen from the translation of “Nos Galan” below, “Deck the Hall(s)” is not a translation but new words by Oliphant to an old song.

Lyrics

Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Don we now our gay apparel, Fa la la, la la la, la la la.
Troll the ancient Yule tide carol, Fa la la la la, la la la la.

See the blazing Yule before us, Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Strike the harp and join the chorus. Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Follow me in merry measure, Fa la la la la, la la la la.
While I tell of Yule tide treasure, Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Fast away the old year passes, Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Hail the new, ye lads and lasses, Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Sing we joyous, all together, Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Heedless of the wind and weather, Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Merry Christmas from NYC Santa

merry christmas

Time for Santa to take his long winter nap. Can’t wait to see you all again next year…

***********************************************

A quick story to share for a Christmas laugh…
(Not mine I mind you LOL)

With Christmas close upon us, I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving.

As you know, some of us have been known to have brushes with the authorities from time to time, often on the way home after a “social session” with family or friends. Well, Saturday night, this happened to me.

I was out for a gathering with friends and had more than several glasses of scotch and a few quick shots before leaving the event. Although relaxed, I still had the common sense to know I was slightly over the limit. That’s when I did something I’ve never done before – I took a taxi home.

Sure enough, on the way there was a police roadblock, but since it was a taxi they waved it past and I arrived home safely without incident.

This was a real surprise to me, because I had never driven a taxi before. I don’t know where I got it, and now that it’s in my garage I don’t know what to do with it.

So, anyway, if you want to borrow it give me a call. Merry Christmas and “be safe out there”

Have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy  SAFE New Year

Additional Verses – just a few I have heard many over the years…

We all know that Santa’s coming,

And we won’t go until we’ve got some
We won’t go until we’ve got some
We won’t go until we’ve got some
So bring some out here
