No boring sleigh rides for Santa when he comes to California - no way. No wriggling down sooty chimneys. No reindeer dashing here and there. No need for stops for them to be fed and watered, impeding Santa's trek to the warm sunshine. Santa Claus gets ushered in aboard a U.S. Coast Guard boat...... and hops onto the dock full of excited children!
Santa wears shades (but only when he comes to California).
After Santa handed out gifts to all the kiddies, they each got to decorate a gingerbread man.
