Simon Property group held Caring Santa at a number of its mall properties for a second year, including Oxford Valley Mall, Lehigh Valley Mall and Quaker Bridge Mall, and happily announces that the event has grown considerably. The event allows children with special needs to meet Santa Claus, and in order to make the visit more comfortable, the mall creates a subdued environment by turning off fountains, silencing background music and hosting visitors before all stores open. See Caring Santa clips for the different properties from WFMZ 69 News, 6 abc and Lawrenceville Patch.

If you’re a Beatlemanic, then The Art of The Beatles Classic Rock Art Show at Montgomery Mall is something you should visit before it’s too late. The exhibit features a visual history of the Fab Four and includes many rare, hand-signed art pieces created by John, Paul, George and Ringo which are all available for sale. The show will run through Christmas Eve.
