The store will host a lottery for time on Santa’s lap.

ABC Carpet & Home’s long-time Santa will return to the store this holiday season — albeit for one day only.

“We’ve been in touch with Santa and he will indeed be visiting ABC Carpet & home,” said ABC marketing associate Katharine Boris in an email.

Some parents worried that ABC’s long-time Santa Claus, who has listened to children’s Christmas wishes for nearly 30 years, would not be stopping by the store this year since the store had yet to post a visiting schedule on their website or social media platforms.

A source told amNewYork that they had received an email from the home decor store stating that Santa would not be stopping by this year.

Now, according to Boris’ email, Santa will be visiting on Dec. 8, but only 100 children will be able to sit on his lap, according to Boris.

The store will host a lottery for the spots and will release details on how to enter in their newsletter and social media soon, she said.

Children have traditionally been able to visit Santa and ABC Carpet & Home on Saturdays and Sundays starting in late November.
