Duluth, MN (NNC NOW) - Santa kicked off the post–Thanksgiving holiday season at Fitger's, earlier today, joined by the young, and sprightly, reindeer duo, Penny and Ziva.

Santa will be available for family photos every Saturday, from 11 to 4, and Sunday from 12 to 3 until December 16th.

According to Crystal Collection Reindeer co–owner, Yvonne Simon, while the reactions vary, every child loves a chance to see Santa's faithful companions.

"Some of them that are just learning to talk say 'puppy,' or 'moo'—a lot of different reactions, but a lot of excitement and energy. That's really the name of the game," said Simon.

Photos with Santa are free for any military families.
