The demand on Santa Claus' time during this time of the year is enormous, but somehow he manages to fit EVERYTHING into his tight and busy schedule before his busiest night of the year, Christmas Eve and Christmas morning! Kids of all ages can't wait to tell Santa what is on their wish list and for the opportunity to sit in his lap and whisper to him what they want, or in some cases shout it out loud!

While the kids are telling their secrets to Jolly Ole St. Nick, parents try their best to snap a pic of them in his lap! Here are a few places where you can go to visit Santa before Christmas to try to get that sweet pic of him with the kids!
