For the first time in 159 years, there won’t be a Miracle on 34th Street.
It’s been announced that Santa Claus will not be meeting with customers and kids to talk about what they want for Christmas, ending a 159-year tradition.
Don’t go down on missing out on Santa too fast, in this year of change because of the pandemic you can still talk to Santa about your Christmas wishes, virtually.
“To replicate the magical experience of visiting Macy’s Santaland for children and their families, we will shift to a virtual engagement this year,” said Susan Tercero, Macy’s vice president of branded entertainment.
“For many, visiting Santa at Macy’s has become a long-standing highlight of the holiday season. Macy’s is delighted to have found a way to ensure even more families can enjoy this treasured experience safely during this festive time of the year.”
Santa will be available virtually from November 27 to December 24 and just so you know, there is a limit to the number of children that can be on a virtual meeting at a time.
