Van Wert is ready for the magic of Christmas. A little extra holiday cheer was spread as children were lined up to tell Santa whether they were naughty or nice.
Some were timid and others were overjoyed to see the big guy. There were wishes ranging from fire trucks to clothes from justice to their first pets.
Wants this year compared to the last have shown a slight change.
Mr. Claus says even parents can help keep the Christmas spirit alive.
There are even reminders for Santa to keep the heart of Christmas.
The Claus family will be at Traceys Country Flea Market every Wednesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Photos are free of charge and there are no extra costs.
Santa can still receive emails and messages on Facebook and his web site. After a couple of days, photos with Santa can also be viewed online.
