Everyone has their holiday traditions. Maybe your whole family goes out to cut down your own Christmas tree. Or you have an Elf on the Shelf that returns every year to cause chaos in the house and watch over your children’s behavior. In my family, we go to the arcade on Christmas Eve and have a hibachi dinner after. However, when we were younger my parents would always take us to breakfast with Santa! If you have never taken your kids to breakfast with Santa, it is the perfect new tradition you can start in your family!

Instead of having to wait in a long line at the mall for a picture with Santa, try a more interactive meet and greet like breakfast with the man himself! I’ve taken the responsibility of putting together this list of some of the restaurants and organizations hosting a Breakfast with Santa event throughout Ocean County. All you have to do is find the one closest to you and make your reservation! There may even be some special appearances from other holiday characters. So, skip the line at the mall and have a fun festive meal (and maybe a festive drink for the adults) with Old Saint Nick
