Local sisters take annual photo with Santa every year since 1977

JACKSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio - For many families, Christmas just wouldn’t be complete without pictures of the kids with the local mall Santa.

Take a trip to any area mall and you will expect to see droves of parents standing in line with their toddlers and youngsters waiting eagerly (or screaming in terror) as they approach Santa’s chair with their wish lists handy.

For the Himler family, photos with Santa started like any other family.  But what makes the Himlers special, is that after 37 years, the “kids” are still going to see Santa.

Sara Cole, 29, along with her sisters Elizabeth, 36, and Rachel, 27, spent the afternoon at Belden Village Mall in Canton getting the family’s 37th annual Santa photo.

Sara said the girls do it every year for their mom, as it is her favorite Christmas tradition.

Even though the girls are all grown up and married with children of their own, they still enjoy getting in line to see Santa to keep their family tradition going.
