If you weren’t counting down to the holidays already, you will be now.

If you weren't counting down to the holidays already, you will be now.

For brunch: From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the man of the month — Santa Claus — comes to greet brunchers at the Twisted Tail (509 S. 2nd St.) for pictures. Menu offerings include domestic artisanal cheese, biscuits and gravy, chicken and sweet potato waffle, veggie burger and more.

For local finds: The final day of Greensgrow Farms' (2501 E. Cumberland St.) Holiday Bazaar, featuring local vendors like Duc Tank Pottery, Enriched Macaroni Products and Earthwise Naturals, runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. today. This is also the perfect opportunity to scoop up your holiday plants!

For a shopping break: Take a time out from shopping at the Promenade at Sagemore (500 Rt. 73 S., Marlton, N.J.) where, from noon to 3 p.m. today a pre-Hanukkah themed-pop up refreshment shop will be serving kosher treats. Pinkberry's froyo, Harry and David snacks, Plow and Hearth fireplaces and cookies from the Jewish Federation of South Jersey will be offered.

For stag facts: Decipher the differences between reindeer, caribou and local deer, hear holiday stories, play games and make crafts at Norristown Farm Park's (2500 Upper Farm Rd., Norristown, Pa.) Reindeer Romp. The activity begins at 1 p.m. at the park office.

For a night ride: Take over the role of Scrooge for the night and visit the Ghosts of Christmas Past on a trolley ride around Victorian Cape May. Tours depart at 8 p.m. at the Physick Estate (1048 Washington St., Cape May, N.J.)
