We have been visiting Santa at Macy’s in New York City since 2008. While the wait is long there is much to entertain as we take the journey to the North Pole. Santa takes the time to listen to everyone. When asked what we want for Christmas I answered “a vacation” and Anthony answered “healthy kids”.  Breakfast with the New Jersey Santa at Rockefeller Center, “bada bing kids!” Ice skating with the athletic Santa; he was zipping around the rink, skating with the cute girls. 

Once Upon a Holiday is a collaboration between Saks Fifth Avenue and Disney to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Together they’ve brought Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs from the woodlands to Fifth Avenue in a series of 14 animated windows that tell their story.  Traditions create connection, permanence and identity, whether cultural or familial.
