A Boy Is Never Too Old To Visit The Real Santa Claus

Lorraine Pulido, Ph.D., communications manager for VIA Metropolitan Transit, says her Christmas always entails a visit to see Santa Claus at South Park Mall. Since 2003, when her son Jared was just 4 months old, they have visited Santa and had has a photo taken together.

In 2014, Jared had grown too big to sit on Santa's lap so he took a seat next to him on his plush green chair. This year is Jared's 13th annual visit with Santa Claus. He and his mother plan to continue the tradition until he is 18, his mom says.
