Shopping Mall Santas Scaling Back Kids’ Expectations, Profiling Parents

The economy is leading shopping mall Santas to try a different approach, when approached by kids with long lists.
Santas are now trying to get kids to scale back their expectations. Santas are also being trained to size up parents’ financial situations, to see if kids are being realistic about what they’ll find under the tree.

This story is only remarkable because the co-anchor (as ~3:00) declares there is no Santa. There was an uproar & she had to apologise all over the place.
