Picture with Santa

It’s that time of year again! We went today to avoid the mega lines to get your picture taken with Santa.

Santa Claus has come to our town and we just had to visit.


Our picture was taken at the Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove.

With the help of Newsday I am able to tell you where Santa is so you and your family can get your picture taken too…
