Santa Home Visits in Chicago and Northern Illinois

Santa home visits are nothing new, the Jolly Old Elf has been visiting people in their homes for as long as long as he has been around. What is new is that village and town recreation departments and park districts have started to pick up on this trend.

The Chicago area organizations listed below are now booking Santa visits to homes in their cities and towns. The average home stay is ten or fifteen minutes, about enough time for Santa Claus to quickly listen to what the children would like for Christmas, have a few pictures taken, and then be on his merry way.

The visits run about $25 to $35 per household with some more, and others less. You almost never get an exact arrival time, so you should plan on being home for a few hours that day or evening. Most visits take place between five and eight o’clock.
Usually Santa will give you a call before he knock’s on your door.

Knowing that they are actually going to meet with Santa in their home, is a great way to keep the kids on their best behavior on the days leading up to Christmas and is something most children will never be able to forget.
