Bring the kids and stop by Santa's hut and tell the big jolly guy what you want for Christmas.   However, keep an eye out because The Grinch will also be at the Gardens and you never know what mood he'll be in, probably grumpy, but his tiny little heart that grows three sizes knows the magic of Christmas.

 Don't forget the many photo opportunities that are available throughout the entire garden.  If it's not already it will become a Christmas tradition to snap a family pic or a couple pic in the light tunnel.
