Mama Elf began working on this year’s Santa’s Helper LAST December and now the truck routes are planned and scheduled, the elves are giddy with anticipation and ready to join Santa on his deliveries today from 2 – 8 p.m.

Children and adults alike, look forward with great anticipation to seeing the Fire Trucks coming down their street, lights and sirens to your front door, with Santa on board, leading the way. His truck full of gifts, his firefighter helpers and Elves visit with each family while delivering gifts and cheer!

Today you’ll be seeing the Fire Trucks with the flashing lights and hearing sirens and a big HO HO HO, coming down your street and if you’ve signed up, he’ll be knocking on your front door.

Don’t forget, it takes a lot of work for one old Mama Elf to organize this event, so make sure you’re home when they arrive. And do the Santa’s Helper elves in the dispatch center a favor and don’t call every 10 seconds demanding information (I’ve seen it happen.)

Have a good time and maybe I’ll see you this afternoon!
