Books This past weekend was "quite slow," according to a report from Mrs. Claus, "with our visitors popping in with large spaces of time in between. In fact, Santa and Mrs. Claus actually went out to Broad Street, right by the park entrance, and waved to passersby to break the boredom."
"In total, including some very funny teenagers, we visited with 66 children," she said. "Our first two guests were Lila, age 2, and her little sister, Jocelyn, who was just one month old."
Among the more unusual requests were a pet armadillo, hermit crabs, a hamster, bulldog food and a garbage truck.
It should be noted that when a child asks Santa for a real animal for Christmas, Santa explains that he cannot bring live animals on the sleigh, as they get too scared. He goes on to explain that wanting live animals is something to be discussed with mommy and daddy.
"Many of the children make us laugh, but one little girl really got to us today," Mrs. Claus added. "Her name was Kiki, age 6. When Santa asked her what she wanted for Christmas, Kiki answered, with a big grin, ‘Everything!’
"’Everything?" Santa repeated.
"She said, adamantly, ‘Everything!’"
"Well, you must be a very good girl! Have you been a very good girl this year?" Santa asked her.
"She looked Santa right in the eyes, smiled sweetly, and said, ‘Not really.’"
Santa tried to think of something that would prompt her to say something positive, so he asked, "You don’t fight with your brother, do you?"
Her answer: "Kinda … but he starts it!"
Santa and Mrs. Claus will be in the caboose at Lititz Springs Park on Saturday, Dec. 17, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. After that, Santa and Mrs. Claus have to head back to the North Pole to get ready for the big day. More SANTA, page A22
