From our angle, the coolest thing by far, looks like the tuck-in by Santa. What kid wouldn’t go insane with that? It’s one thing to see Santa at a mall and sit in his lap, it’s a whole different level of awesome to have Santa tuck you in! Imagine the photo-ops parents, because we guarantee that tuck-in from Santa will trump any child-in-lap photo you see this Christmas!
