Celebrities are kicking off the festive season with family photos, Santa, and lots of presents. As expected, they are leaving no moment behind to capture the joy of the happiest time of the year.

Ah, the most wonderful time of the year is almost upon us, and in the lead, up to the grand day, it's tradition to visit Santa, put up a tree and sing some carols.

For families with young children, it's all the more special to dress up the kids in their best dress to head over to a local department shore to visit the big red man.

Even though there is sometimes a long line, the anticipation in the air makes any length of the wait even more exciting.

These male celebs are all enthusiastic feminists

  These male celebs are all enthusiastic feminists For years, women have fought and struggled to have the same rights and privileges as men, but increasingly, in recent years, men have lent their voices in support of the movement. There are now more men than ever who identify as feminists and fight to protect the rights of women. British actor Benedict Cumberbatch recently played the role of a cruel, misogynistic rancher in the film 'The Power of the Dog.' In an interview with Sky News, Cumberbatch addressed how the movie mirrors real life. "We need to fix the behavior of men. You have to kind of lift the lid on the engine a little bit," he told the interviewer. "I think it’s ever-relevant, and in a world that’s questioning and ripping into and finally pointing out the inadequacies of the status quo and the patriarchy, it’s even more important." He acknowledged that men often become defensive when these subjects are raised, but that when it comes to the subject of inequality, "we just have to shut up and listen." Various other male stars are speaking publicly about feminism. Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hardy, Jason Sudeikis, and even Prince Harry are just a few of the famous faces to endorse women’s rights and call for equality between the sexes. Click through the gallery for a look at some of the famous men who are proud feminists.

Once inside, a winter wonderland awaits, with elves, lollies, and faux snowflakes, and as the children gasp with glee, some babies will end up in tears despite Santa's jolly bellow.

No matter the experience, those pictures will live on forever as they adorn desks, make the cover of annual Christmas cards, and sprinkle Instagram.

Here are their most festive and adorable shots – oh, it's so adorable seeing them get into it!
