We got the chance to go behind the scenes of Macy's Herald Square Santaland. It's a popular place.

According to Macy's about 200,00 visitors come to see Kris Kringle each year.

Sometimes, people can wait as long as four hours the the chance to see the big guy. When we visited, it was a two-hour wait to see the big guy.

To avoid the long lines, you can try to grab a Macy's Santaland express pass.

Seeing St. Nick won't cost you a thing. It's free.

Santa is there only until December 24th. After that, he has to leave and deliver all the toys to boys and girls everywhere.
