I always feel like after Halloween passes us by, the next thing I know we're getting ready to watch the ball drop and I feel like I accomplished none of the fun holiday activities I planned on doing.

So, the sooner you can plan out your holiday activities, the better!

The ultimate list of where to see Santa at the mall has already been released, and if you want to see the world's largest dreidel, that goes on display this week in Wall.

However, if you're looking to switch up your usual picture with Santa at the mall then you won't want to miss what the Rancocas Nature Center has to offer.

Each year the trails at the Rancocas Nature Center transform into a winter wonderland, and Santa Claus comes to town.

And at the end of the quest, you'll be able to not only get your photo with Santa but there is also a holiday bake sale set up so you can get some tasty treats after some hard holiday work.

This year, you'll be able to go on a Santa Quest on Saturday, December 3rd.
