Kids (and in some cases, pets) can strike a holiday pose with Santa and tell him what they want for Christmas each holiday season starting in November. Although lines may be long, a photo with Santa is a great way to capture a holiday memory that you can look back on for years to come. So put on your holiday best, make your Christmas wish list for Santa, and check below for where you can be sure to see him this holiday season. Details are subject to change, so double-check before packing up the kids and heading out.
