Santa will spend 546.5 hours at Lenox Square this year — here’s when

4:05 p.m Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2017 Winter Guide

Five hundred forty-six and a half.

That’s precisely how many hours you’ll have to get the little ones in a photo with Santa Claus at Lenox Square Mall over his seven-week stint this season. 

The jolly old man will make his first appearance in Macy's court on Nov. 3, inviting children to divulge what they want this year and pose for a picture. 

Oh, and while you’re there, the kiddos may want to swing by to see “Priscilla,” Macy’s Pink Pig train ride that runs beneath a 170-foot, 1950s-themed tent. 

Of course there will also be a giant Christmas tree, marked by the 70th annual Macy’s Tree Lighting on Nov. 19 at 7 p.m.
