Now that we have dispensed with Thanksgiving, the Christmas holiday season is in full swing. Santa Claus will be at the Woburn Mall today and every day until Christmas Eve. Mall shoppers will have the opportunity to have their photos taken with Santa from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 3 to 6:30 p.m. every day. Santa can be found in the open store space across from the Mall’s center court, which has been transformed into a Christmas wonderland where Santa’s North Pole Castle is set up—look for the banner over the entrance. “We have a terrific Santa Claus at the Woburn Mall, and the lines for photographs aren’t as long as other area malls,” said Chris Cardoni, Marketing Manager for KeyPoint Partners, the firm that manages and leases the Woburn …

Keep tabs on Santa as he makes his way to your home on Christmas Eve.
Sure, he sees you when you're sleeping. But now it's your turn to keep tabs on the Man in Red.

My little brother is on her lap, and my pre-teen self is sitting next to him on Santa's. I believe back then I was asking Santa to leave in my stocking press-on earrings, glitter lipgloss and a gift certificate to Limited Too.

Just click on "Upload Photos and Videos," add a caption, or leave your story in the …
