Getting Santa photos is one of those timeless holiday traditions. If you're like me, you have a collection of photos of your kids with Santa starting from the time they were babies. I'll also bet that you have at least one with a screaming/crying toddler or a kid who just. wouldn't. smile. It's OK. We all do.

I always know that the Christmas season is officially here when it's time to get our Santa photos, but with so many choices, how do you know where to get Santa photos you'll really love? I've found the perfect place which, thanks to a little HGTV magic, is a totally immersive experience that's the best way to see Santa south of the North Pole.

Want to take a peek inside HGTV's Santa HQ? Here's what you need to know before you go.

HGTV's Santa HQ is so much more than just an opportunity to get photos with Santa. It's a totally interactive, immersive experience that the entire family will love.

Your visit starts when you hop onto Santa's Naughty or Nice meter, a fun interactive board where you can find out which list your name is on.

Then, take a trip through Elf Academy, where interactive technology makes your kids feel like they are one of Santa's elves!

Inside Elf Academy, you'll a Magic Mirror where you can transform yourself into one of Santa's elves, and get a digital photo of your elf self delivered right to you by text or email.

You can also take a selfie to create your own Elf-ID card!

You can also take a tour through Santa's Observatory and Control Center for a chance to use Elf-Ray vision and "fly" Santa's sleigh.

Of course, all of this interactive fun leads up to a visit with Santa himself!
