Santa and his elves visited with children and families at the Millcreek Mall, listening to Christmas wishes.
The Erie News Now team, including Amanda Post, helped to welcome children and the jolly old elf.                                                                                                            It all marks the start of Christmas season at the mall, Santa’s favorite time of year.                                                                                                                                  “Just the entertainment of the children, if I make them enjoy Christmas, that's what it’s all about,” Santa said. “To have them have fun, make them think, make them hope. And just to enjoy Christmas and make them a little happier.”                                                                                                                                                          Santa will be at the mall through Christmas Eve.
