It’s that time of year again. You know, when the days grow shorter and you start seeing your breath. When people’s cheeks are rosy and there’s a sparkle in children’s eyes. It’s a time when we start getting glimpses of our favorite jolly old elf in department stores and on TV commercials. Santa’s big scene. He’s on sweaters and T-shirts. Coffee mugs and greeting cards. And if you are lucky, you’ll even see him in person. But who wants to go to a boring mall and sit on Santa’s lap? How about visiting Santa as he does something a little less traditional? How about seeing a Scuba Santa? Here’s a list of some of the aquatic elf’s appearances:
On Thursdays and weekends remaining in December, Santa will visit with the sharks at 12:15 and at 2:15 p.m. “to demonstrate that sharks aren’t the blood-thirsty killers of myth,” according to Dave Sigworth, spokesman. Sigworth suggested that folks check “Today’s Events” on its website. to be certain of the schedule.
November 24 – December 31
Daily from 10am – 6pm*

Santa Claus came all the way from the North Pole and made a stop at the Great Lakes Aquarium in Duluth. This is the first year the Aquarium has featured something like this. It’s a community effort, because volunteers from all over the state help make this possible. In order to scuba dive, Santa must have cold water experience. The kids seemed to love it high fiving scuba Santa.
