Allison Stone is interested in how many children get their photograph taken with Santa in a mall in the United States. She thinks Christmas has become too commercialised and having your photograph taken with a Mall Santa has become too important for some kids.
That’s a great idea but a tough one to research, maybe we need to go an ask just one mall and people can imagine what it woudl be like scaled up. How many actors play Santa in the U.S. each year would also be a good one and tough to find. I suspect that closer to Christmas Day we will be seeing a pile of rice represeting the World’s Largest Gathering of Santa Clauses (does an Elf count as a Sub-Clause).
