Kris Kringle, Father Christmas, Santa Claus; a jolly old elf by any other name still brings cheer to all.
Pretty much every tradition has been upended this year due to the pandemic. While we may be visiting Santa differently this year, the nation's pandemic expert Dr. Anthony Fauci said that Santa Claus is immune to COVID. This means Father Christmas may be out and about, but it will be in a way that the rest of us can maintain safety guidelines.
Santa is making appearances at the Sherwood Mall every day through Christmas Eve from 11 am to 5 pm. Safety precautions include a reservation system, contactless visits and required face coverings for all guests, employees, elves and all.
Call (209) 952-6277 for more information.
Lincoln Center will once again be a bastion of holiday cheer and festivities this year. Santa will be making appearances Nov. 28, Dec. 5, 12 and 19 from 12 - 3 pm. He will be chauffeured through the mall so kids can see him while also maintaining safe distance.
Snow will also happen every day from 5 - 9 pm every half hour starting Nov. 27 and running through the end of Dec. Be sure to bundle the kiddos up to get them ready for a Stockton snow adventure.

Santa's visits to Weberstown Mall will happen Nov. 27 - Dec. 24 with the exception of a break between Nov. 30 to Dec 2. While walk-up visits will be possible as space permits, reservations are strongly suggested to see the big guy. Another alternative is a virtual meeting with Santa with phone, computer or tablet.

What better place for Santa to visit than a Children's Museum? Since things are different this year, Santa has teamed up with the museum to provide virtual visits with kids. This way kids can still get some face time with the head elf himself while maintaining safe practices.
