There's no way around it, Christmas is coming. Soon.

I'm not sure when Santa sets up shop in the mall for photos, but at the Walgreens on the northeast corner of Golf Links and Kolb, he'll be there from 1 to 4 p.m. December 7. 

Bring in a toy or non-perishable food item, and you will get one free 4x6 and one free 5x7 photo with Santa.
