Know a family member or friend who is regularly mistaken for Kris Kringle? Someone who can pass for the Jolly Old Elf even when he’s wearing something other than a Santa suit?

In the spirit of the season, we’re asking our readers to submit photos of local Santa look-alikes. Each photo submission will be considered for inclusion in a story to be published on Christmas Eve in Life & Arts and online at
