You know he's going to stuff himself down the chimney (or however he gets in) on Christmas Eve, but that's not for a few weeks. If the family needs a fix now - and a break from cooking - consider going out for a breakfast, brunch or lunch with Santa. Just be sure to make reservations because they may be booked!
