Families Fume Over Mall’s Cover Charge to See Santa

New Jersey’s Cherry Hill Mall features quite the elaborate Santa display, with a virtual sleigh ride and singing elves joining the bearded, pot-bellied main attraction. But unlike in years past, when the attraction was free, families wishing to see Santa now have to pay a cover charge of between $35 and $50, which entitles them to a photo or video footage of the visit. Understandably, irate parents have taken to Facebook in droves, complaining that the steep fee unfairly penalizes low-income children. “I find it classist and it creates a divide between children during a holiday which is supposed to be about equality and giving and having everyone participate in the joy of Christmas,” Sulaiha Bitar told The Philadelphia Inquirer.

How much would you pay for your child to see Santa at a mall?
