Christmas is starting to creep up right after a relaxing Thanksgiving break. Neighborhoods are starting to fill up their homes with Christmas joy, people are getting a head start on gifts and in Oakbrook Mall is definitely going all out.

For as long as any employee can remember, working at any store in OakBrook Mall can say that it has never seen a dull moment in the months of November and December. They entire place is filled with lights, Christmas music, a big lit tree with many ornaments, the German Market and, of course Santa.

It is incredible seeing all the happy faces on little children when they see Santa’s House. They get to go inside on a little tour and see a sneak peek as to what the North Pole might look like. Then at the end of it all, children are allowed to stay in the back of the house and make some toys. It has been a great passing time for them, and especially for parents who would like to take a break from all the shopping.

It was a great way to ring in a new season and holiday. No one will be disappointed with the outcome of this wonderful early Christmas Event.
