‘Tis the season for candy canes, Christmas trees, caroling, and hanging out at the mall in a line that stretches all the way to the parking lot for a picture with Santa. Not digging on that idea? Well, there is an easier way to get up close to old St. Nick!

Being stuck in a line with a hundred other people, juggling shopping bags and coats, all while hoping little Pifas will sit still and smile on Santa’s lap, instead of having a meltdown like last year, is no way to spend the day! Take the kiddoes out to the library instead, and get a picture taken with Santa and enjoy storytime, too!
