Santa Sightings and Christmas Tree Lightings in Brooklyn & Beyond

Where can I see Santa in Brooklyn? It’s the question all my neighbors with babies are asking me this week. Turns out we hadn’t updated our list in a while! Get your fix of caroling, Christmas trees, hot apple cider (and cocoa!), as well as some face-time (lap-time) with the big man himself.
