Who says Santa only works one day a year?

The North Pole’s resident in red showed up for work early last week Saturday at Town Square in Green Lake to greet local kids, hand out treats and ask them what they want for Christmas.

The children, meanwhile, decorated cookies courtesy of Webster’s Marketplace and made holiday crafts ahead of Town Square’s annual tree lighting.

Santa reportedly will continue making local public appearances.
