Seeing Santa at the mall can easily be traumatic for anyone experiencing full-blown sensory overload thanks to Christmas lights, animatronic candy canes, pointy-shoed elves and tons of other kids in various conditions of excitement. If you are a child on the special needs spectrum, it can be overwhelming. Santa, long known for being as inclusive as he is jolly, doesn’t want to leave anyone out this Christmas so he is inviting children with special needs to a toned-down, sensory-friendly visit at Cottonwood Mall on Sunday, Dec. 1 from 9am to 10am. This free, all-ages event is quieter, with muted lights and alternate seating options for Santa photos. To learn more and RSVP, see cottonwoodmall.com. (Clarke Condé)
