No matter how dramatically things change in pop culture, getting that perfect picture with Saint Nick is something that has stood the test of time.
It's one of those kitsch traditions that no child can get out of for the first ten years of their young lives (if they're lucky).
But hey, that's what this time of year is about, corny music, bad jumpers and cringe-worthy photos, get involved!
As you no doubt know, you get what you pay for, but that's not to say free is bad, as you'll find out down the list.
So, if you don't just want any photo with Santa this year, here's 3 of the best!
Paramatta Park Cafe
On from 9 am every weekend right up until Christmas Eve. For $50, Azuelo Designs are offering a unique outdoor photo session with Santa. With a friendly photographer, gorgeous backdrop and professional prints you can keep forever, it's money well spent. Pets are welcome too.
SantaLand, Moore Park
Located in the entertainment quarter. Sticking to the traditional white Christmas theme, this is a great option for the traditionalists among us. Starting from $19.95. Online bookings recommended!

Sometimes, you don't always have to pay for quality; sometimes it's just given to you for free. But you do have to sacrifice convenience, and this might not be the best option for those of you who hate long waits. Sunday 18 December 2016; 10am-3pm, get in quick!
