Santa Ron is coming to town

Getting ready for work in the morning is never easy. But when you're Santa Claus and work is finding out what children want for Christmas, well, that's a chore of a different color (but mainly red).

Before heading off to Ross Park Mall, Santa Ron takes 15 minutes to blow-dry his snow-white beard but saves major dressing and primping for later. When he's not at the North Pole he vacations -- where else? -- in the North Hills. It's not unusual for kids to stop by any time of year to say hello and give him a heads-up on their wish list.

By Nov. 8, he's on the job at the mall, with an ample lap and ready ear. By early December, he's really busy, listening and ho-ho-hoing from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day. His sitting days are nearly over. On Monday, Christmas Eve, he'll spring into action, delivering gifts to children all over the world.
