Sit down with Santa

-A A +A

Many don’t know that Santa Claus has a special outpost right here in Shelby County. With the loading process underway at the North Pole, Santa was able to pop away from his preflight checklist with Rudolph, Donner and Blitzen to talk to The Sentinel-News about his favorite cookies, checking the naughty list and a few other mysteries surrounding Ol’ Saint Nick.

The Sentinel-News: Does Mrs. Claus have a hard time keeping your red suit clean?

Santa Claus:Yes, she does, because I eat in the sleigh, and I get my suit very dirty.


S-N: What do you enjoy most about being Santa Claus?

Santa: I like the laughter of all the children and the giving them gifts, especially those in need.
