Volunteer divers are Amanda Pack, in reindeer outfit at left, and Paul Silber, Santa, right. Santa appeared (with three fellow volunteer scuba divers, two as elves and one as a reindeer) for a preview of the National Aquarium's holiday celebration this weekend. For his Santa role, volunteer diver Paul Silber reported it was necessary to trim his beard. "Santa Dives" will take place from 10-2 on Sat. and Sun, and there will be other activities free with admission to the Aquarium, including a character appearance by Diego.
