iPlay America is the North Pole of New Jersey! So, Kris Kringle is coming to mingle, make merry, and take pictures with ALL the good boys and girls!
Every year, Santa Claus, also lovingly known as Saint Nicholas, Saint Nick, Kris Kringle, Father Christmas or simply Santa makes his way down from his workshop at the North Pole with a couple trusty elves in tow and takes time to sit down with good boys and girls and listen to their wishes and dreams before the Big Night arrives! Kids all over the world write letters to him and leave cookies for him and his reindeer to enjoy. Santa is a BIG DEAL! And if there is one thing we ALL know, it’s that children LOVE Santa!
And if your kids can’t wait to see Santa before he drops down the chimney this year, then make plans now to take part in a classic holiday tradition at iPlay America! Sunday, December 10, you are invited to join in ALL the FUN of iPlay America’s Third Annual Breakfast with Santa. This delightful holiday gathering with Santa Claus offers a delicious hot breakfast buffet that includes an omelet station, assorted breakfast breads, yogurt and granola, pancakes, fresh fruit and more. During the breakfast, Santa visits with guests at their tables and children’s entertainer Miss Sheri will be performing LIVE.

Nothing Beats the Thrill of Seeing Santa!
Be it seeing Santa in person or larger than life up on the silver screen! Hollywood adores Santa and there have been many a fine celluloid celebration of the jolly old Kringle! Beloved classics like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, where “Nobody likes a skinny Santa!” or The Grinch Who Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss! There are even those who have a certain affection for John Calls interpretation of St. Nick in the B-movie Santa Claus Conquers the Martians! It’s a wacky film where Martians come to Earth to kidnap Santa because there is no one on Mars to give the children presents. Proving that even children from different planets LOVE Santa!
Throughout the years, the jolly old gentleman in the red and white suit has offered families so much joy on the big and small screen! It’s a time-honored family tradition to gather loved ones together to share their favorite Santa Claus films and television programs! Let’s face it, it’s not really Christmas until we see Santa riding his trusty Norelco electric razor through the snow, is it?
