Arriving to the Village Green in high style via a City Fire Department rig, Kris Kringle made what has become a Hilltop Holiday tradition -- his annual pre-flight visit to Summit.

In addition to posing for photos with all the good little boys and girls -- and listening to each of their special under-the-tree-please requests -- Mr. Claus helped Summit Mayor Nora Radest with the official lighting of the town tree.

Lots of hot chocolate and general merriment was had by all, who can again rest assured that Per Noel has his sleigh's GPS system properly set for the 07901.

Summit Snaps captures images in, around, and about the Hilltop City. Got a picture?... Send it -- along with the appropriate photo credit -- to gelliott@tapinto.net.
