Best Places to Meet Santa

by Sally Foster (follow)
Meet the face behind the magic of Christmas

No matter if you call him Santa Clause, Kris Kringle or Father Christmas, taking your kids to meet Santa is an absolutely magical experience. Watching their little faces light up at meeting their hero in person, is a huge joy in a parent's life. And if they are a bit afraid, and maybe shed a few tears, it makes for a great photo op anyway!
