Santa Train Takes Kids to Victoria's Secret Store
Toddler attraction features lingerie display:
The kids' Santa train at the White Flint shopping mall in Bethesda, Md., is giving the tots an eyeful, taking them past a [Victoria's Secret] storefront display of "SEXY" lingerie, according to a consumer who complained to the shopping plaza's owners.My Comments:
This reminds me of something that happened when we were visiting my folks in Texas last year over the Thanksgiving holiday. We took the kids to NorthPark Mall in Dallas to visit Santa (NorthPark is where my mother used to take me to visit Santa when I was a kid, and I always loved the mall's Christmas displays and decorations, so I wanted my kids to experience the same thing while we were in town).
When we got to the mall, my boys Jamie and Aidan started sprinting ahead of us toward where Santa was located. As they passed the Victoria's Secret store, Aidan - who was a little over a month short of his 3rd birthday at the time - came to a dead stop and stared at the window display (then-4-year-old Jamie was oblivious and kept running).
Obviously, the mall train in the linked story should take a different route, and we'll be more careful about which mall entrance we use the next time we take the kids to see Santa.
