There is a tradition in the small town of Elgin Oregon
where I grew up. Santa comes in his bright red fire truck and brings bags of treats to every child in town. He stops at every house and bursts through the door with a jolly "Ho, Ho, Ho" handing out bags full of candy, peanuts and an orange.
We always spent this special evening with Grandma Simmons when we where children.
The tradition still continues to this day.
