    So for the last 4 years my parents have dressed up as Mr & Mrs Santa Claus and set up Times with local stores, private parties, schools and the local xmas parade. They charge about $50 to $100 a hour.

    For the last 3 years my wifey and I have bought and set up a little thing to take pictures of kids and adults on Santa's lap. We bought an el chepo 2.0 mega pixel camera, and a 2 canon printers.

    We also buy greeting cards to slide the new santa photo into.

    We charge $6 for 1 photo or 2 for $10 ( Some buy 10 of the same photo )

    And let me tell you WE BANK!! Doing around 11 three to four sessions.


    Last 3 years we averaged making
    between $2000-$3000 with $300-$400 in ink and paper costs. So its pretty sweet extra cash!

    This year I think we are going to do even better, whats a better gift then a picture when we're all broke!
