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.

Go Go Tell It on the Mountain Sing Along with Santa

While shepherds kept their watching
Over silent flocks by night,
Behold throughout the heavens,
There shone a holy light:
Go, Tell It On The Mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere;
Go, Tell It On The Mountain
That Jesus Christ is born.

While shepherds kept their watching
Over silent flocks by night,
Behold throughout the heavens,
There shone a holy light:
Go, Tell It On The Mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere;
Go, Tell It On The Mountain
That Jesus Christ is born.

The shepherds feared and trembled
When lo! above the earth
Rang out the angel chorus
That hailed our Saviour’s birth:
Go, Tell It On The Mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere;
Go, Tell It On The Mountain
That Jesus Christ is born.

Down in a lowly manger
Our humble Christ was born
And God send us salvation,
That blessed Christmas morn:
Go, Tell It On The Mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere;
Go, Tell It On The Mountain
That Jesus Christ is born.

When I am a seeker,
I seek both night and day;
I seek the Lord to help me,
And He shows me the way:
Go, Tell It On The Mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere;
Go, Tell It On The Mountain
That Jesus Christ is born.

He made me a watchman
Upon the city wall,
And if I am a Christian,
I am the least of all.
Go, Tell It On The Mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere;
Go, Tell It On The Mountain
That Jesus Christ is born.

FROM WIKI

Go Tell It on the Mountain” is an African-American spiritual song, compiled by John Wesley Work, Jr., dating back to at least 1865, that has been sung and recorded by many gospel and secular performers. It is considered a Christmas carol because its original lyrics celebrate the Nativity of Jesus:

Go Go Tell It on the Mountain

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
