After the Randolph Middle School Canzonetta Choir kicked the night off performing a series of Christmas and Holiday songs, children sipped on hot chocolate as their eyes grew wide in anticipation of seeing the Jolly gift giver from the North Pole.

Kids from all over town, regardless of whether they were naughty or nice, lined up to sit on Santa’s lap and tell him what they wanted for Christmas.    

Santa will be back in town again in a couple weeks, taking his annual ride around Randolph on the township fire trucks.
