Christmas is almost here, but there’s certainly time for your kids to get a one-on-one with the big man himself, and a picture you can cherish forever.

Santa’s Enchanted Forest is in full swing at Square One Mall! Each year the mall is transformed into a winter wonderland and this year it’s bigger and better than ever! Santa’s Enchanted Forest is a magical place for children to come and sit on Santa’s lap, just in time to let him know their utmost desires for the 25th! Check out the official description from Square One below:

Snap a photo with Santa at our NEW LOCATION (Level 2, near Holt Renfrew), amid a magical backdrop of gorgeous trees adorned in pops of gold and silver, alongside whimsical woodland creatures. While in line, say hello to Santa’s helpers, who will arrive in the form of sharply-dressed nutcrackers. And, receive a complimentary Lindor chocolate provided by Lindt. In addition, partial proceeds from every photo package sold will be contributed towards Autism Ontario’s Peel Chapter.

If you want to swing by Square One Mall sometime in the next week – although you’ll probably be there shopping anyway! – you can grab a photo and some snacks with Santa Claus. Below is the schedule provided by the Mall, as well as package options, and a great picture that showcases the kind you’ll be bringing home with you! Happy shopping!
