Oh, how I've dreamed of that iconic child-with-Santa photo that I could drop into our annual holiday card! But sadly, it's not to be yet again this holiday season. Nope, I"ve got a five year with an acute case of Santa-phobia. With no recovery in site.
But happily for the rest of you, Santa Claus is coming to town! Er, towns, that is. Yes, there are lots of towns in Fairfield County where you can and your kiddos can visit with Santa. And please, when you visit with him, put in a good word for my family! For loads more holiday fun check out our Holiday Fun Guide.
