These past two Sundays, Santa hopped aboard Engine 10-55 and surprised children throughout North Madison! (He would have flown, but Rudolph and the other reindeer were in for their pre-flight annual vet check-ups and sky shots, and the flying sleigh needed a fresh coat of thermosphere-proof star glitter).
So many wonder-struck neighbors this year—our best year ever! Santa stopped by 102 houses with sirens, flashing lights and loud air horns to spread joy and smiles to 180 children and to thank their parents for their generous support of our volunteer fire company. Participation in our Santa drive was up 40% this year! We drove Santa, his elves and helpers everywhere!
Many thanks to those of you whose generosity and belief in magic keeps Santa—the REAL Santa!—coming to town year after year. He told us to tell you HO HO HO and MERRY CHRISTMAS, and to remind you to clean your chimneys for fire safety and easy self-and-elf access. And make sure all those children to go to bed early Christmas Eve!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS and PEACE, JOY and GOOD WILL TO ALL.
