Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is next. But, as of today, if you're out shopping in Ocean County, it's all about Santa! And this year, the big man is going high tech for your family photos.

Santa is officially ensconced at the Ocean County Mall starting today. While he's going to be there every day until Christmas, you know how it can be when you have to wait in a long line with kids anxious to meet the jolly man himself.

So this year, the high tech elves at the mall are making it easier than ever to get in and do what you need to do - you can make an appointment with Santa right on their website.

Much like scheduling a haircut or an oil change, now you don't have to take your chances that everyone else is looking for some Santa time when you are!

So what do you think, is this a good idea, or taking some of the fun out of the experience? Comment below and let us know what you think!
