But recently, malls have started to ban parents from taking their own photos, or asking them to shoot from a certain distance.

We've caught Santa on camera throughout Patch towns in our area. We'd love to see your photos too!
Ever wonder how Santa visits all those houses on Christmas Eve? Well we don't wonder at all. We've seen him at the Acme in Stow, at the Brecksville Public Library, and even at Crocker Park in Westlake. With all the locations he's been spotted at throughout our area this month, it's no wonder he can hit everybody's house on the big night. So, we're sharing our Santa photos with you to get you in the holiday spirit. Want to share yours too? Sure, that'd be awesome.
