The end of 2020 is around the corner and many of us are ready to celebrate the New Year more than ever before.

An annual holiday photo with Santa Claus is a tradition our family loves. And while photos with Santa are bound to look fairly different in 2020, local businesses have gotten creative to make it happen safely for visitors and the big man in red.
