This is as close as Charlie would get to this Santa, and only because he had the candy cane.
None of my pictures of the program turned out, but I think the kids look like ewoks or something with their beady eyes.
This Santa visited Benjamin's preschool. He is by far the best I've ever seen. He doesn't pressure the kids to sit on his lap, he shows them some reindeer bells, he passes around his magic key that lets him into houses without chimneys, and when asked about the naughty/nice list, he tells them there is no such thing as a "bad" kid - that kids make mistakes sometimes just like adults.
And here's one of Charlie.
