The decorations are up. Egg Nog and Christmas candies are on grocery and drug store shelves. If anything, Santa Claus is late.
Santa will be arriving in Bethesda tomorrow morning, November 15, at 10:00 AM, at Westfield Montgomery Mall. He will hold court on the Lower Level, outside of Sears, from 10:00 AM - 9:00 PM.
Tip for parents: Santa has been known to take hour-long breaks to "feed and water the reindeer," as his official spokesElf puts it. Those breaks have been known to occur at 2:00 and 5:00 PM, so if you're juggling impatient, irritable kids, plan accordingly.
Ho Ho Ho!
