One of Santa's elvish helpers gazes out the window of the Santa House in downtown Pottstown while Maggie McCullagh, 7, of North Coventry, reviews her Christmas list with that jolly old elf.
Santa came calling to downtown Pottstown yesterday and if his visit wasn't enough to bring out the kid in you, there were enough happy kids to make it worthwhile anyway.
With the rain unwelcoming to his traditional red Corvette, Santa turned to the Pottstown Police Department, who know how to deal with a guy often found prowling around people's living rooms late at night.
The Phillies Fire Co. toasted hot dogs and marshmallows to go along with the hot chocolate they were selling and the ChesMont Jubilaires sang Christmas carols.
The tree was lit, the reindeer too, and other trees were decorated in store windows up and down High Street.
Here's some video from the event:
Or, if you're like me and want to read all about it, you can do so here in the Mercury story we already posted online, the highlight of which is the slideshow of photos taken by veteran Mercury photo chief John Strickler.
And of course, there was Tweeting, there's always Tweeting...
