Today's the day we've all been waiting for - Santa Claus makes an appearance in the Capital Region! 

If you have a child with a Christmas wish list, or you want to get all cute with your new girlfriend and sit on Santa's lap, you can head over to Crosssgates Mall today!

At the lower level, by the Apple store, Santa will be meeting you Monday-Thursday from 10:00 AM-8:00 PM, or 10:00AM-9:00 PM on Friday and Saturdays. Santa will be there on  Sundays from 11:00 AM-6:00 PM as well.

What are you asking Santa for this year?  This photo makes me sort of want Santa's job sometimes.
