1 Percent Santa?

Problem

Every child, no matter what his or her parent's economic status is, should be able to sit with Santa at the mall without having to pay through their red noses, regardless of what amount of money they are charged.

Families who experience this exciting moment say and parents and most of all, the kids are thrilled. Therefore, now that Santa Claus is coming to town, the experience should be for all, not just for those who can afford to see him.

However, a New Jersey Mall has decided that seeing Santa has a $35 starting price tag. The Adventure to Santa experience, which takes families on a 4D virtual sleigh ride to the North Pole with Shrek and friends, ranges from $35 to $75 per family or person.
