You better be good, you better not cry, you better not pout I'm telling you why, Santa Claus is at the Mall Of Abilene everyday until Christmas Eve. Jolly old Saint Nicholas will arrive daily around 10 AM (except Sundays he gets there at noon) and usually stays until 8 PM. On December the 11th Santa Claus becomes 'Santa Paws' as he welcomes pets. Here are the rest of the details.

A word of caution, let the folks at the mall take the pictures, because if you take some on the sly with your trusty phones or cameras, you could find yourself in a bit of a mess with Mall security. This year there's a special night set aside for pet lovers, December the 11th is when Santa will pose with your pets. The Mall is expecting the usually large crowds on pet night with Santa Claus, that is why he's scheduled to stay until 9 PM. As I recall the year I played Santa Paws there are two things that come to mind, one the guy with the pet snakes and the fact that I was still posing with pets until 10 PM.

So please beware that for some reason 'pet night' is the busiest night for Santa at the Mall and the lines are long, so play nice. I will admit the video below is my all time favorite Christmas video and Christmas is not Christmas without it. It goes to prove even our pets believe in Santa Claus.
