Santa

Santa Claus is still compiling his list, but he’s already visiting New Hampshire to hear children’s holiday wishes.

Though people are still munching Halloween candy and Thanksgiving is a few weeks away, Santa Claus’ workshop at the North Pole is in full Christmas production.

And that means the jolly one has already set out to gather children’s wishes across the Granite State.

He’s begun getting his picture taken with visitors to the Pheasant Lane Mall, 310 Daniel Webster Highway, Nashua.

Photos with the pets will be taken at the mall from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 24.

Families with children with special needs can register for Caring Santa by registering for quieter visits Dec. 8.

Santa’s magic sleigh also will make landings starting Friday at the Mall at Rockingham Park in Salem starting Friday.

Pet photos with Santa will be offered there from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 24, and Caring Santa will be Dec. 1 and 8.

Look for him also at The Mall of New Hampshire, 1500 S. Willow St., Manchester, starting Friday.

Pet photo day is 6 to 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 24. Caring Santa is Dec. 8.

Visitors can register online for a Santa FastPass to avoid time in lines.
