Santa Chris and Mrs Claus have returned to Lansdowne Shopping Centre for the annual Christmas photo shoots

He gets around that Santa Chris guy, doesn’t he?

He and his lovely wife, Mrs Claus, have been known to frequent Richmond Centre shopping mall in the past, as well as Lansdowne Centre and even Aberdeen, where the jolly couple popped up last Christmas.

Now the very popular pair is set to welcome their army of followers back at their former grotto at Lansdowne.

Starting this Saturday, Nov. 19, Santa Kris and Mrs Claus will be available for the requisite photoshoots, for a fee.

After Saturday, they will be available, via booking an appointment, Wednesday to Sunday until Christmas Eve, from the hours of 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The Richmond News reported two years ago how Santa Chris underwent surgery and received a new heart at St. Paul’s Hospital.

He told the Richmond News back then that his health has been pretty good since the surgery and that he was “probably the healthiest” he had been in centuries.
