Santa strikes again!!!

Just when you thought it was safe in bah-humbugville here comes Santa Claus and his accomplices Mrs. Claus, Miss Friona Carly Drake, Little Miss Friona Ellie Jo Weatherly, and eight elves to chase all the grinches away and bring joy to the world.

Santa and his entourage arrived at the winter wonderland depot Monday afternoon to take pre-orders from the tiny tots of Friona. Don’t worry kids if you missed Santa, you can still write to him and when Santa Claus gets your letter he will know just what you want.

While Santa and Company were rocking around the Christmas tree with the younger crowd, the Friona High School choir sang carols and vendors sold cookies, tamales, and drinks in the not so silent night.

When is came upon a midnight clear, Main Street was lit up by the Christmas Parade of Lights. The lighted caravan made its way south down Main, made a couple of laps around the park and headed west out of town. Santa will not be home for Christmas because as he was leaving town he turned around and said, “I’ll be back.” So you better watch out, don’t cry or pout, because…Santa Claus is coming to town!

Miss Friona Carly Drake, Mr. & Mrs. Claus, and Little Miss Friona Ellie Jo Weatherly welcomed visitors at their “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas Party” last Monday at the Depot. See more photos on the back page of this week's Friona Star.
