NI Blogs: Bad Mall Santa Encounter

"Works almost every time," writes Marianne Love/Slight Detour. "A walk through virtually any portion of the vast Kootenai Valley serves as an antidote to the blahs.  Yesterday was no exception." More photos/text here.

Top Blog Post: The other day, I was with my mom and nieces at one of the malls in our area.  The girls wanted to see Santa, so we waited in line to see him.  I started to wonder about this Santa long before we got in to see him, because he makes the kids stand in front of him and tell them what they would like for Christmas, instead of sitting next to him in his giant chair, or sitting on his knee.  Well, I guess he lets those paying to get their picture taken with him sit on his knee, but they are the only ones/Live, Love, Laugh, Hope. More here.

Question: Have your kids ever had a close encounter w/a bad store Santa?
