'Twas just a couple weeks before Christmas, when all through the Aquarium, every creature was stirring except the mice in the Serpentarium.
Stockings were hung by the chimney with care, for surely St. Nicholas would soon be there.
Eno, Pungo and Neuse were nestled by their tree, waiting for you to come and see.
Surprises, games and treats await every guest who comes to visit our winter wonderland fest.
Santa by the Sea — it's known far and wide, but little is known of the magic inside.
In addition to creatures from mountains to sea, for a short little time additional helpers there’ll be.
Santa’s elves take a break from their work at the pole, to spread Christmas joy to each little soul.
So come on and visit, and show that you care — get a photo with Santa, who plans to be there.
