Macy’s Will Not Be Hosting Santa Claus For The First Time In History


Santa Clause will not be making a Macy’s appearance for 2020

The longstanding retail chain Macy’s will be making holiday history this year and will not be hosting Santa Claus for store visitors. This will be the first time since Macy’s founding in 1861 that they will not be hosting Santa Claus to welcome shoppers to the store.

Macy’s is known for being one of the biggest holiday destinations for parents to take their children to visit Santa Claus but the retail stores are opting for a virtual experience. Macy’s will be having a virtual event in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

The virtual Santaland experience can be accessed from home with the hopes that this will reduce the large crowd gatherings in stores. Macy’s report that more than 200,000 people visit Santaland annually.

Macy’s will also be opting for a digital format for the Thanksgiving Day parade that will not be on the traditional route and will not have an in-person audience. There are few details of the parade but Macy’s is working hard to create a special holiday for people to enjoy from home.

Macy’s will open the virtual Santaland experience online starting on Thanksgiving to entertain the kids while cooking. The Santaland virtual experience will take kids on an interactive journey to the North Pole and have them excited for Christmas.
