Even though Santa is very busy this time of year, he and his helpers, bless them, always have time for socializing. Particularly if there are good eats and treats involved.

Call 914-428-4921 to reserve your place today.
Santa’s back for more story time at Neiman’s Children’s World, Lower Level, on Saturday, Dec. 15. For more, call 914-428-2000, ext. 2521.
Another of Santa’s helpers is also having breakfast with youngsters at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Westchester Sunday, Dec. 9 from 9 a.m. to noon. Guests arrive between 9 and 10 a.m. for a buffet, face painting, cookie decorating, balloon artists, holiday movies, writing letters to the big guy at the North Pole and donating unwrapped toys to Toys for Tots. Tickets are $105 for adults, which include the mimosa and bloody Mary bar, and $49 for children.
