Christmas is quickly approaching and Sunridge Shopping Centre knows that a happy holiday is a safe holiday this year! Your holiday traditions might need to be tweaked for 2020, but we know you’re still looking for a little magic. With decorating, treats, and gifts, plus a little creative holiday fun, make a plan to embrace this season of joy and light.
When you’re shopping for Christmas, sometimes it’s just easiest to head to the mall. Sunridge Shopping Centre has extended holiday hours this year so you can do safe holiday shopping for everyone on your list. Whether you’re looking for big-ticket technology or the sweetly sentimental, check some gifts off your list without stress.
While you’re running errands at the mall, the kids usually like to visit Santa, but Santa needs to make sure he stays healthy for the big day! While Sunridge Shopping Centre does not have an in-person Santa this year, it doesn’t mean you can’t still have a little fun, socially distanced, of course!
Have your little ones write a letter to Santa, then drop it off at Sunridge Guest Services (or mail it in), and they’ll make sure Santa gets it. Your kids will get a very special video message from the big guy himself! You’ll have the message to keep so your kids can see it as often as they like. Don’t forget to write your email address so Santa knows where to send the message!
Your kids can also check out videos of Santa’s Elves and a few Christmas Characters reading some favourite holiday classics. Santa will be checking in (by video) from the North Pole to make sure the little ones are still being good boys and girls! Watch social media for announcements, as all these videos will be on the Sunridge Shopping Centre YouTube channel.
On the weekends in December, starting December 5, 2020, bring the family to visit a contactless, socially-distanced photobooth. The shopping centre will have all the safety features in place for you to take a break from your shopping and get a family photo set against a Christmas background of your choice. One more thing checked off your list!
More than ever, we all need a little Christmas magic. Sometimes that looks like getting your gifts purchased, creatively connecting the kids with Santa Claus, and spending time together. Let the Sunridge Shopping Centre make your season a little brighter this year.
