Thanksgiving may have just ended, but Old Saint Nick is already making stops around town before Christmas.

Santa was at the Thronateeska Heritage Center from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Friday afternoon to meet children and see what they want for Christmas.

Grady Cornett was one of the children in line to meet Santa. He told Santa he wanted a power ranger toy, and a train set.

Gray's mother says that the little boy celebrates Christmas year round and this is a really special treat for him.

"All year round, any time he sees Christmas lights, he says see mama I told you its still Christmas," said Barbara Cornett, Grady's mom.

Friday was the only day that Santa would be at the Thronateeska Heritage Center.
