Christmas is just around the corner and Operation Senior Claus is in full force. No matter what you call him (Father Christmas, Black Peter, Grandfather Frost, Swiety Mijolaj, Winter Grandfather, or St. Nick), he is working with all his helpers here at the center to make sure everyone in Highland wakes up with a smile on their face this Christmas. Santa’s little helpers from the Highland Senior Center, Highland Noon Kiwanis, and the Highland Woman’s Club are pitching in to help 60 seniors in need.

However, with all these helping hands, Santa still needs your help. We will be preparing Christmas dinners (turkey and all the trimmings), and little gift baskets for some good seniors who managed to stay off the naughty list. To do this we are still in need of money donations, gift cards to food markets, as well as hygiene products (i.e. toothbrushes, shampoo); enough for 60 people.

So please think about helping out those less fortunate as you and maybe, just maybe, if you’re on Santa’s naughty list, this might push you over onto the nice list.

By the way, Kris Kringle is a varation of Christkindl. When Martin Luther was doing his reformation of the church. He was upset that Santa was the main person of Christmas, (over shadowing Jesus). Knowing better than to get rid of the well known gift bringer, He said Santa accompanies the christ child (Christkindl in German). Christkindl became known as Kriss Kingle.
