Two firetrucks just came down our road—and I was freaking out since that means there is a fire, an injury or something that means bad news. Turns out it was one truck followed by second carrying Santa Clause! I can tell you that my 9 year old will never get over it. In a cynical day and age, I can tell you that I probably won’t either. Thanks so much to the people that came up with this idea and the people that pulled it off. Merry Christmas!

There was a firetruck Santa on Saturday night in my friend’s neighborhood near Albemarle High School, where my two kids happened to be spending the evening. They were SO excited when we picked them up later that evening, especially my three year old. Apparently they handed out some chocolates and asked the kids if they had been good this year! Very cute, and much nicer than going to see the mall Santa!
The traveling fire truck duo came through the Woodbrook subdivision about 7:15 p.m. Santa was riding in the “cherry picker” bucket which was positioned over the cab of the second truck. There were very bright lights on Santa and his helper which made them appear almost like they were floating through the darkness.
Both trucks were sounding their sirens in a low key kind of way — a sound different from when there is a real emergency. Seeing a massive fire truck up close is by itself pretty neat. Watching Santa float by made it even more interesting.
Thanks for commenting. I found a few kids today that were really excited about their Santa experience. I am happy to hear that he was all over the place and even happier that there haven’t been any snide comments. :)
The “Santa Run” is an annual event run by the Seminole Trail Volunteer Fire Dept. that was organized by Battalion Chief Mike Rose 3 years ago. Seminole Trail VFD is very happy that our friends and neighbors enjoyed the event.
