Ahhh, the age old picture with Santa Claus. While the legend of old Saint Nick holds no clout for X, Y, or boomer generations anymore, there’s still new generations who believe in the magic of flying reindeer and set out a cup of glass and cookies for the jolly fellow. Still, the magic of Christmas and the Christmas spirit can be enjoyed and should be enjoyed, if the telling tale of Ebenezer Scrooge is anything to go by.

So, as I still carry my Christmas photo with Santa from long ago, atop a makeshift throne of Coca-Cola boxes (it was at Stater Brothers, sponsored by Coke), so Wal-Mart is offering the free opportunity to sit atop Santa’s lap, tell him what you want, and get a nice, free snap from Fujifilm.

This opportunity to meet the great Klaus will occur multiply over the next month, so if you’re also interested in meeting Santa’s helpers or the like, you should check your local mall or shopping center. For the OC’ers, South Coast Plaza and Bella  Terra are definitely holding, while Westminster Mall has reinstalled their merry-go-round for the season.
