On Saturday, Dec. 21, Santa will take a break from his preparations and visit the Historic Columbia's Carriage House at Robert Mills for a holiday treat to remember!

Join Historic Columbia for Breakfast with Santa from 8 to 11 a.m. and enjoy a continental breakfast while listening to seasonal music. After your meal, take a tour through the decorated halls of the Hampton-Preston Mansion, see a Victorian Christmas tree, make a holiday craft to take home and take a picture with HC's Victorian Santa Claus. The Victorian Santa wears a green suit rather than red. The Santa that is familiar to us was a creation of the Coca-Cola Company starting in 1931.

While Santa has been gathering lists, the elves in the Gift Shop at Robert Mills have also been hard at work providing great values, so visit the shop for shopping and activities throughout the day during and take advantage of the storewide sale.

Breakfast with Santa is $10 for HC member adults, $2 for member youth, $12 for non-member adults, $3 for non-member youth and free for all children 3 and under, and reservations are required. For more information, please call 803.252.1770 x 23 or
