One of the great things about living in a small town is that there are some things that they can do just because of the small size. Our town is only 4 blocks by 3 blocks so it is quite compact. That means that Santa makes an appearance at everyone’s house on Christmas Eve (thanks to our Fire Department). He rides on an awesome vintage trailer pulled by the fire truck. It is a big deal here when we hear the fire siren and go running out to see Santa. I LOVE this tradition and feel very fortunate that our kids get to experience it. Of course they think all kids get this kind of service!
