SEGMENT: Santa drops by News Leader 9

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - News Leader 9 had a special guest all the way from the North Pole Thursday morning.

Santa made his way down to share the latest holiday news.

Santa says that this year's hot gifts, like most years, are electronics for the older kids: hover boards, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4, for the older kids. For the little ones, Hatchimals, LOL Dolls, cars, and trains are on top of their lists.

He also shared the secret to staying on the nice list. "If they continue to try to do better each day, even after they've made mistakes, they'll always be on the nice list" Santa said.

His favorite thing to do on Christmas is go to church and the rest of the year, he likes to remind children about the birth of Jesus being the reason for Christmas.
