Come get a Santa photo, help the Community Center

Hopefully the Jolly Elf’s visit will promote smiles.

On Saturday, December 8th, Santa Claus will be coming to Kaffeeklatsch (12513 Lake City Way).

The jolly elf will make an appearance in our neighborhood coffee shop for a photo session. And you are invited.

Santa’s appearance is a fund-raiser for our own Lake City Community Center. Photos with Mr. Claus will cost $10 and will be shot by a professional photographer.

He will be seated in front of the neighborhood bakery/coffee shop’s giant Christmas tree.

The photos start at 2 p.m. and continue until 5:30.

All proceeds will go the Lake City Community Center and its future Youth programming.

The professional photos will be put on a CD and you can walk next door to Bartell Drugs to make your holiday cards.

International collection of nativity scenes on display in Lake City

Its that time of year when people unpack their holiday decorations, decorate their homes and prepare to celebrate the traditions that make the holiday season such a special time for families and communities.

This weekend one of the most impressive displays of holiday decorations in Seattle is happening right here in Lake City.

On Saturday and Sunday, December 1st and 2nd, Nativity Exhibit Northwest and Lamb of God Lutheran Church are hosting the Annual Nativity Exhibit at Lamb of God church, 12509 127th Avenue N.E. The exhibit showcases more than 800 nativities from almost 100 countries. Some are intricate artworks, some are made from recycled items, some are made from food, some are funny, some try to make a point, all are fascinating.

“This is a great way to kick off the holiday season,” said Ben Breeden, a visitor who has been coming to the see the display with his extended family for years.

The display moved from its previous location after the collection grew too large. For the past 20 years it was hosted at Crista Senior Living in Shoreline.

The exhibit continues until 7 p.m. on Saturday. It continues on Sunday (December 2nd) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Below is a small sample of some of the nativity sets on display.
