“The Best Santa in New Jersey” According to These New Jersey Moms


Taking the littles to see Santa Claus is one of those mom moments for the memory books. It’s part of the magic of this time of year– and our #NJMOM squad LOVES the Santa experience at The Mall at Short Hills. With an immersive ‘elf yourself’ theme complete with your own personalized elf badge, buttons to press to boost Santa’s sleigh, and even falling snow– the wait to see the big man moves faster as the kids are engaged and entertained the whole way through as part of Santa’s ‘Flight Crew’. St. Barnabas Medical Center sponsors the Short Hills Santa display each year, as an opportunity to interact with families and be a part of a favorite holiday tradition. It’s a way to be there for the community not just in sickness, but also in health and good cheer. And there is PLENTY of that happening here. You can hear the bells on Santa’s boots echoing through the mall, only to be matched by his hearty ‘ho, ho, ho’ and the giggles from the kids. And then there are the adorable photo moments! Don’t miss one of the most fun Santa experiences in the state.

You still have some time to catch Santa at The Mall at Short Hills. He’ll be there through December 24th during normal mall hours. Then, it’s gift delivery time!
