Victorian Tea with Father Christmas

If you’re tired of all the modern hoopla surrounding Christmas, it might be time to get back to tradition.  How does a Victorian tea sound with Father Christmas?  Pretty traditional.

But seriously – it’s a chance for kids to interact in a different way with Santa.  The children’s event will feature holiday-themed activities and a visit by Father Christmas himself!  The kids will learn about the history of Santa from a special storyteller, sing carols, and enjoy a delicious lunch with tea.  Plus it all takes place inside a mansion!  Click on the following link for a map.

5001 Grant Avenue

It all takes place this Saturday, December 1 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Tickets are $25 per person, children and adults, and advance payment is required.  Call 215-632-5330 for tickets and more information or click here to visit the website.

It might sound like a steep price, but you pay close to that amount for one picture on his lap at the mall… and this sounds like a much more pleasant experience.  Plus you’re sure to inspire your child’s imagination and create memories that will last even longer.

Merry Christmas!
