Since March of this year, Christopher’s has been serving up locally focused seasonal items and delicious treats, like fresh baked goods, flavorful salads, gourmet sandwiches, and more.

One look at their Facebook page will have you rushing to your car and heading to 1816 South Main Street to get your hands on the daily special.

While they advertise an impressive spread of food, they got my attention with a special holiday announcement.

On Thursday, the owner of Christopher’s raised an important point about children with sensory processing issues and how they may struggle with the season’s festivities, so he decided to do something about it.

“We reached out to experts on how we can make it possible to create an hour with Santa that caters to their specific needs,” said Christopher’s online. “Fortunately, we found an amazing person who specializes in this and she is going to set us up right.”

If you have or know of a child with sensory processing issues, Christopher’s invites you to join their special moment with Santa on December 9th from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

The restaurant promises a “specially orchestrated environment” that will allow the children to be themselves as they share their Christmas wishes with Santa and enjoy refreshments, pizza, and popcorn free of charge.

“We believe no one should be left out of anything we do,” said Christopher’s.

A reservation system will soon be put in place. Check out Christopher’s Facebook page to stay up to date on how to reserve a spot.
