Another shot from NY on the day after Thanksgiving. There was a long line of santas undergoing "training" on Fifth Avenue. It was quite a sight to see! Nothing like seeing something like this to mess up your kids' belief in Santa.

Great shot. My eight year put all the dots togather and just confronted us last week "about the whole Santa thing" so I guess it's safe to show her this one.

LOL. Yeah, that's not very nice of the folks who arranged this.

Yow... that would blow a kids mind! But the old "Santa's Helpers" line always worked well for us. Very colorful shot.

Wow, is this some kind of convention. That's the second largest group of santas I've ever seen. Just kidding, the largest :)

HOLY SMOKES!!! :-) Now which is the REAL one I wonder?!?

Yes dear, they are all Santas helpers. Yes dear, there is only one Santa. Yes dear...

LOL I love this! My dad is a professional Santa who has been to one of these schools. Great money in the business but my young nieces and nephews do get confused so every year we have to tell them how busy the real Santa is and how Santa "recruited" Papa to help him out every Christmas. The young ones buy it but still scratch their heads when Papa "transforms" like Tim Allen in the Santa Clause.

Great shot! I love this! It gets me all tickled! I love the vibrant red!

Which one is the real one?

And they say there is no such person as Santa!

No santa shortage n the USA then ;-) I think you must be paying more than the UK ones there are "Santa Wanted" signs everywhere here. The unusual subject matter makes this another great shot.
