Santaland not all sparkles and light

Singing trees and festive lights adorn Macy’s Santaland in downtown Minneapolis, where visitors can take a trip through the magical elf village and meet Old Saint Nick himself.

But not everyone in the crowd was delighted to sit on Santa’s lap.  Santa Claus, aka Steve Graves, tried to get 18-month-old Landen Wilber of Cottage Grove to reveal his Christmas wish list, but the event was too much for Landen. Santa did have better luck with other youngsters who stopped by.

Admission to the Macy’s display is free and open every day except Thanksgiving, through Dec. 24.
