Straight From Santa's Lips

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Even for those of us who are probably too old to sit on the bearded man's lap, the mall Santa—harbinger of the holidays, granter of wishes—is a nostalgic icon we're happy to revisit this time of year. In that spirit, our LA editor is rounding up some of the city's most beloved mall Santas and asking them the tough questions. Check out the first entry in her Santa interview series, this way.
