To answer the funny outfits and not the traditional red suits is they are consider naturally Santa and are supposed to be more friendly. That is pretty much all we have here. I have one as a client and he acts and looks like a true Santa all year so it is super cool if you run into them at the grocery store because the kids go look mom there is Santa.
I loved all the pictures. We have looked at Santa but don't want to get close. Will try again before Christmas.
