Gearing Elementary School will welcome Santa and his helpers. Many children wrote letters to deliver and will sing songs, hear a story. Listen in as they ask their questions of Santa…and Believe! Santa will leave from there and will head out to Macy’s Birchwood – at 6:00 p.m. Giving the reindeer time off for good behavior, Santa will arrive with a police escort in his shiny red tour bus and be greeted at the store. Santa welcomes one-and-all to join in the festivities as he reads The Night Before Christmas, visits with children of all ages and encourages everyone to put their letters to Santa in the Macy’s Believe mailbox. Children will also enjoy in-store entertainment while they wait to speak with Santa. Santa told WGRT’s Cathie Martin that residents are invited to bring along their cameras for photos of the kids with Santa. This is the fifth year Macy’s “Believe” campaign invites children to mail letters to Santa using Macy’s Santa Mail Letterboxes. Macy’s donates $1 for each letter mailed in store, up to $1 million, to Make–Wish®.
