That's a long list of Christmas fun! You can see how many cute activities are included in Shave Santa. From the rollicking Christmas jingles to the ever-so-colorful red, green, white high-res screens with candycanes and elves all the way to Santa in his own hair salon! Listen to the blowdryer and the scissors snipping that beard and hair! The razor is buzzing away while Christmas lights are twinkling in the background.

Press and hold the gift to the right of the hairdryer, and the selection of spray can hair colors will appear. Tap a can to spray Santa's hair. Now tap the gift to the right of the spray cans, and the colored sudsy shampoos will appear! Go ahead and tap a bottle to shampoo Santa, then tap the snowman to rinse. Lots of great sound effects and pretty colors to enjoy here. Tap the gift to the right of the bottles, and here is where you will find the ornaments to decorate the tree! This is one of my favorite activities! No mess, no broken ornaments with Shave Santa! Just use your imagination and decorate to your heart's content. (These last 3 gift icons to their respective activities may be a bit sticky in not easily swiping).

Tap the jingle bell icon any time you want to hear this merry sound, and select off for the Christmas music, although I enjoy listening to the festive sound. Jiggle Santa and hear him laugh, comb his hair neatly and give him a shampoo. Keep track of how many days left till Christmas with the calendar in the background. As of today, it's 105 days till that very special occasion!

I don't see why this app doesn't have a higher rating, as with the upgrade there is an abundance of exciting, colorful features! In fact, there are so many delightful family activities in Shave Santa, you'll want to get started on your own Christmas right now! I promise your kids will thank you for giving them an early start with Santa!
COOL CONCLUSION:  There's no better time to celebrate Christmas than now and every day! Play with Santa in his hair salon and interact with all the accessories that tickle this jolly, old man in Shave Santa.
