Child Photo with Santa?

Postby Masen » Wed, 09 Dec 2009 6:57 pm

Hi,
In Australia every shopping mall has a man dressed up as santa for children to have their photos taken with. Does that happen here and if so where?
Thanks

You will find Santas in most malls, I believe . . . choose the Indian ones, they are more fun and the contrast between white beard and dark skin comes up better in photos

In addition to the local Santa, if your kids are old enough to be computer literate, you might want to do this for them:

It's actually pretty neat!

Merry Xmas.

SMS - we did this for my son yesterday and he was completely mesmerized! I took a video of both kids watching it and they were both waving and answering when Santa asked them questions. It seriously was the sweetest thing I've ever seen. Good post!!!

Don't mean to be a racist, but no-one wants a black Santa! LOL. But you just gave me a really funny visual. =)

You place a high value on yourself . . .

Oh, here's a thought . . . . . Don't do it. Problem solved

Since we are on the topic of taking photos with santa, you might find this link amusing

They're doing some kind of Santa thing in the new mall on Orchard (313 Somerset) - I think it is photos with Santa - maybe they've got a website which you can check on.
