The fourth event on CRi’s favorite holiday traditions list is one that captures the essence of Christmas and creates a magical wonderland for kids to enjoy.

Santa’s Magic is among the most popular holiday traditions for kids and their families. Held at the Omaha Children’s Museum, kids get to experience the wonder of the holidays with the interactive program to get in the spirit of the holiday tradition

The program is ongoing throughout the holiday season. It features friendly characters like the Snow Queen, Holly the Elf and Santa Claus himself. Of course, festivities would not be complete without lights, music, theatrical moments and even snow. A special feature of the program is Santa calling each child by name to hear their wishes making it an unforgettable experience.
