Who didn't see this coming?

If you plan to have your kid(s) take a photo with Santa Claus in 2020 chances are the photo will look very different.

As the number of COVID cases increases across the country, many retailers are doing their part to protect Santa and the kids.

For example, Bass Pro Shops around the country are putting a barrier between Santa and his guests, plus Santa will be wearing a mask or protective shield in front of his face at all times.

The coronavirus pandemic has forced many to adjust, for now, and it looks like Christmas 2020 will be somewhat different too.

Still, kids will still be able to communicate with Santa and even get a photo with him during the pandemic. I applaud the retailers and other attractions around the country for adjusting and still allowing kids to see and visit Santa.

We all knew changes and precautionary measures would be taken this year, but at least kids can still visit Santa this holiday season.

Many places will still require guests to wear a mask while visiting Santa and you will have to practice social distancing at just about any venue you visit.
