Turn on the Town features two days of holiday merry-making

Published: Monday, November 19, 2012 at 11:56 AM.

After the traditional lighting, it will be time for children to hop on Santa’s lap and tell him their Christmas wishes. But be forewarned, nothing naughty or nice can be kept from this 21st century Santa.

“Santa’s very up to date; Santa has an iPad,” he said of the system that can scan a face and immediately reveal “Naughty” or “Nice.”

But he said it isn’t too late for a child — or adult — to change.

“Typically we do the naughty and nice list,” said Santa. “But it’s done in pencil.”

Santa said adults are also welcome to share their wish lists, but made sure to add that spelling counts when asking for a brand new Mercedes. He added that the cars are really model cars, but, “They can get any color they want.”

And as excited as the child in all will be to see Santa, he is looking forward to exchanging the North Pole’s snow for Seaside ’s white sandy beaches.

“That’s what Santa likes, that’s why he vacations in Florida in the summer … We love Seaside ,” he said. “They really do know how to Turn on the Town.”
