Santa offers words of hope, love, kindness for the season

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

Over the past several months, due to pandemic restrictions and precautions, we conducted our mini survey online. For this issue, however, we were once again on the street! As this is a special time of year, we tracked down a special character in five places and asked a special question: “What is your message for kids of all ages during this holiday season 2020?”

Santa, Coligny Plaza: “Let’s keep hope in our hearts, for better times ahead.”











Santa, Shelter Cove Towne Centre: “Wear your mask, and be good.”











Santa, Hilton Head Island Fire Rescue: “I wish everyone a fire safe holiday season!”











Santa, Old Town Bluffton: “Be thankful! The gifts we receive this year may not be the biggest or most expensive, but to receive anything, it’s coming from the heart. We are blessed!”












Santa, Greater Bluffton: “Oftentimes, the greatest joys in life can be found by simply making others joyful. Somebody somewhere is waiting for your smile, your hug, and your kind words.”
