Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas! It's not too early to say that anymore.

While everyone is preparing Thanksgiving dinners, buying presents planning for big family reunions, this is a friendly reminder that one of the most fun things to do when it comes to the kids and Christmas is getting their picture with Santa Claus!

Santa Claus is coming to East Texas and below are details as to where you can have your photo with him and/or make any appeals on getting off the “Naughty List” before Christmas.

You can find good ole Saint Nick at the following locations:

Broadway Square Mall, Tyler:  You can find Santa at Broadway Square Mall in the Center Court during regular mall hours and even have brunch with him on Saturday December 2nd from 9 am to  10 pm - with arts and crafts and face painting.  Also, to beat the rush and avoid the long line you can now reserve your magical moment with Santa online by clicking here.

Longview Mall:  You can also find Santa in Longview Mall until Christmas Eve. On December 3rd the Longview Mall presents ‘Sensitive Santa’ for families with children with special needs where you can visit the Santa Photo Experience from 10 am to 11:30 am.

The event is free and photo packages will be available.  The mall is asking families to RSVP in advance by purchasing one ticket.

On December 16th from 1 pm to 3 pm you can have milk and cookies with Santa. And for the animals in your family, you can bring your pet on December 10th between 6:30 pm and 7:30 pm so your furry friend can have a picture with Santa too.

Santa Land, Tyler:  Santa will be hanging out at Santa Land until December 23rd.  Also, while you are visiting Saint Nick you can enjoy a trailer ride until December 26th.

Help us spread the cheer in East Texas. Where else have you spotted Santa this season and we'll add to our list!
