Here’s where you can take photos with Santa in metro Atlanta

Santa is coming to Atlanta.

The big jolly man will be using his magic to be at malls all over the metro area starting in November, and staying put until Christmas Eve (when he has other plans). You can bring your kids, your dogs, even your cats, if you can wrangle them, to sit in Santa’s lap and tell him what they’d like under the tree. Here’s where you can find Kris Kringle during the holiday season.
