Santa Claus is bunking with Burton firefighters during the first weeks of December and making the rounds to meet the citizens of Burton. Santa wants to gather his Christmas lists to get them back to the Elves at the North Pole in preparation for his big night.
Engine companies throughout Burton have been taking Santa around and introducing him to their citizens and firefighters are happy to report that all of the children are on the nice list, while a few of the firefighters have found themselves on the naughty list. But Santa assures them they have time to be good boys and girls and make the good list before December 24th.
When not out touring Burton, Santa can be found in the stations enjoying chocolate chip cookies and watching Sponge Bob Square pants...Santa's favorite TV show. Firefighters were amazed that Santa was up on his X-Box skills and often challenges the firefighters to sports games. The bet? If Santa wins no coal in the stockings...
Santa will remain in Burton for a few more days before heading back to the North Pole only to return again on Christmas Eve. He also promises to bring firefighters a resupply of suspenders for their fire pants.
It has been a fun visit again this year and firefighters are sad to see Santa go, but next year will be here before they know it.
