Anybody can put on a red suit and hat, don a white beard and say “ho ho ho” to passersby. But if you want to do Kris Kringle’s job properly, you can do what hundreds and hundreds of them have done: go to Santa school.
This is our twelfth year taking pictures of the Carlson Kids with their buddies Santa and Mr. T.
Merry Christmas to all the people of local news!
Judging by these smiles, today was the perfect time to bring Santa and T back into action!
Everybody has their own holiday traditions
Why does NORAD watch Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, while watching for missiles and bombers the rest of the time? It all started when an ad for a Santa Claus hotline accidentally published a military hotline number during the Cold War. Plus: a gag gift known as the "Nothing Box" was maybe one present that wasn't supposed to travel through the skies at Christmastime.
Santa Claus decided in the 50s to move his whole operation away from the North Pole so he can provide toys to kids in outer space.
Gayla Peevey famously asked for a hippopotamus for Christmas. But that wasn't her only holiday song!
This year has upended a lot, but the Carlson Kids' tradition of taking holiday pictures with Mr. T and Santa lives on!
A song that I imagine prompted Santa to boost his security detail, after hearing what Brenda Lee had in store for him.
