The anticipation and excitement leading up to meeting Santa Claus is an incredible experience for children. As a kid, there is nothing like walking up to see the jolliest elf of them all. The decorations glistening as the sound of holiday music plays, and Santa himself sitting majestically on a Christmas throne waiting for all to whisper their holiday wishes.

Yes, the enchantment of Santa is very real in the hearts of these kids. The look on their faces when they meet the "chief elf" is priceless. Remember, you can hold that priceless moment in time forever with a photograph of your kiddo meeting Old Saint Nick.
