[and just in case you think I can't count, here's a recap of the five reasons: chance of a free ipad/other gifts, photo with Santa, free parking, and deck the balls, which obviously counts as 2. 1 vote because of the actual event + a chance at getting a one-of-a-kind ornament, and the second because of the great name]
