Waiting For Santa Claus


Multimedia Journalist - Julie Collins

PADUCAH - Santa Claus, Kris Kringle, or even old St. Nick. There are movies and songs about the big guy, you can even send him a letter to the North Pole. But has anyone, short of the elves and reindeer seen him delivering toys in person?

T'was the night before Christmas, and Bradyn Sanderson was still up waiting for santa, with some cake and milk in a cup. The stocking we're hung by the chimney with care, and Bradyn planned to be awake when St. Nick came there. But before he gets nestled all snug in his bed, this little boy must get the reindeer properly fed.a quick glimpse of the magic he thought he did see. To the couch he ran with excitement and glee. And then, in a twinkling, he heard on the roof. The prancing and pawing of each tiny hoof.

"I want to see him come down that chimney, it's not a real fire place, he won't get burnt and he won't get any ashes on him so he'll be clean," says Bradyn.

But the hours drew on and this 6 year old tired, and so his hopes to catch Santa did not transpire.
