Some Scrooges like to say kids outgrow Santa at a certain age, but two brothers are out to prove those humbuggers wrong.
While the red velvet line to see Santa at the mall may be full of tots under 10, there is no age limit to the tradition. Reddit user Friarmarty has the photo evidence. He and his brother have visited Santa together, every year, for the past 34 years.

Amy Poehler won't be Tweeting, pinning or posting a selfie anytime soon.
"I'm not a real social media person. I'm not on Twitter," the Parks and Recreation star and Golden Globes cohost tells Paper Magazine for its holiday gift guide issue. She also notes that she finds people can be mean online – even when they don't intend to be.
"I try not to read too much online because I always get my feelings hurt, even if someone's flattering you," says Poehler.

Somebody had to go home on Thursday's The X Factor results show, but it most certainly wasn't going to be Alex & Sierra.
America voted to send the pair – who wowed the judges Wednesday night with their flawless rendition of Sara Bareilles' "Gravity" – through to next week's finale.
"We just want to thank everybody that's voted. This is incredible," a humble Alex said upon hearing the news, while the group's mentor, Simon Cowell, gushed about the talented singers.
"I think they've been incredible to work with," he said. "They've gotten better every single week and the finale would not be the same without them."

Beyoncé has created a holiday frenzy – delighting fans by announcing a surprise new album just before midnight Friday, then secretly releasing it immediately after the announcement.
With 14 songs and 17 videos, the self-titled album features several collaborators including Jay Z, Drake and Frank Ocean – and a special little one on its closing track. For the song "Blue," Beyoncé performs with daughter Blue Ivy.
"I see music," Beyoncé said in a video announcement on her Facebook page. "It's more than just what I hear. When I’m connected to something, I immediately see a visual or a series of images that are tied to a feeling or an emotion, a memory from my childhood, thoughts about life, my dreams or my fantasies. And they’re all connected to the music."
