GPK 's own Santa

Marty,Merry Christmas to you and everyone on the blog. Here are 5 shots taken recently. The first two show my home after the recent snowstorm, and the last three show a Park tradition that has been going on for 35 years.

A man who lives on the corner of Churchill and Chambly, whom we'll call Santa, collects money all year, purchases thousands of gifts then goes around every Christmas Eve, travelling on every street in Greenfield Park and gives a gift to every child who comes out to the sidewalk when he passes on his sleigh pulled by a horse. It takes him about 4 to 5 hours to complete the job. I'll reveal who he is a later in the week, but many already know this kind man's name.

Thanks John
