It’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but already local malls are getting into the Christmas spirit and setting up for Santa’s arrival.

The Pentagon City mall has its Christmas tree up, and Santa will arrive next Saturday, November 12, to pose for pictures with customers.

Ballston Common Mall is waiting until after Thanksgiving to bring in Santa. He’ll arrive there on Black Friday, November 25. There will also be special hours on December 4 and December 11 for people to bring their pets for photos with Santa.

    And this is why if I have to set foot in a mall, I don’t do it after the middle of October.

    Santa doesn’t arrive at Ballston Common Mall until after Thanksgiving but the Ol’ Mally, the friendly Grim Reaper of outdated retail spaces, poses for snapshots in the food court weekdays from 6 – 8 p.m.

      Ol’ Mally resides at Ballston Common 365 days a year.

    Santa said the Ballston Mall blows and no kid that visits him there will get presents this year.

    I miss the Pentagon City santa that was drunk between his sittings and fell down the up escalator. Ahh… classy guy he was. 😉 Since then santa’s come from Denver (at least for a few years)… nice guy, Santa post rehab for sure. Ha!
