Every year many children, both young and old, want the opportunity to see the Jjolly man in the red suit.On Sunday, the families of the West Crossing neighborhood were some of the lucky individuals who were able to do just that. Accompanied by Mrs. Claus, Santa Claus visited with more than 100 children at West Crossing’s neighborhood amenity center. The ages of the children ranged from young to old, withone visitor being only three weeks old.
The children had the opportunity to participate in some Christmas activities while they were at the holiday event. They made reindeer food to bring home and sprinkle on their lawns, allowing the reindeer to follow the smell and find the children’s homes on Christmas Eve. It’s also a good midnight snack for Dasher and Prancer.
Santa made sure to give everybody a toy, a goodie bag and even candy canes. After visiting with Santa, guests were given refreshments to enjoy.
Santa and Mrs. Claus weren’t the only ones that were in the giving spirit. The homeowners of the neighborhood brought canned goods and non-perishable food items to donate to the local food pantry. Those donations will help families in need.
It was an event that fully demonstrated you’re never too young — or too old — to get in the Christmas spirit.
