Breakfast with Santa & Holiday Shows

We know Santa snacks on cookies and milk while doing his yearly Christmas Eve rounds, but how does he like his eggs? Swing by one of Staten Island’s “Breakfast with Santa” events and your family can dine with the big guy himself. Don’t forget to bring your camera — and your wish list! Afterward, catch a local holiday show. Get in the spirit!
