“SANTA! OH MY GOD! SANTA’S COMING! I KNOW HIM! I KNOW HIM!”
If you’re as big a fan of the movie “Elf” as I am, then, just like me, you’ve probably repeated that line over and over every holiday season for the past 11 years. Even though, unlike Buddy the elf, we don’t, in fact, know Santa.
That all changed when the big guy invited me for a chat at his cozy cabin at River Park a couple weeks back. Yes, that’s right. The River Park Santa is the real deal. Or, this writer is just having a bit of Christmas fun.
Regardless, it’s Christmas Day and what better way to spend it than by getting to know the jolly bearded man who flew around the world last night and delivered all those gorgeous presents you’re probably enjoying right about now.
And, come next year, we can all quote “Elf” with a little more credibility. Because now we do know him!
