Longwood FC helps Santa make the rounds

Fire company give St. Nick a ‘lift’ for tour of local neighborhoods

Santa Claus gets a lift from the Longwood Fire Company as he takes time out to say hello to local kids.

POCOPSON — Although it’s his busy time of the year, Santa Claus took time out this weekend to enjoy his annual ride with his good friends of the Longwood Fire Company.

Hoisted on top of Ladder 25, Jolly Old St. Nick waved and smiled — and told kids all over the Unionville area that “he’d seeing them soon, again.”

Although he and the elves are, obviously very busy, Santa always takes time out to enjoy a local tour, having been sighted in East Marlborough and Pennsbury on Saturday and then in Pocopson and Kennett on Sunday.

Ladder 25 was turned out in fine form, letting kids know Santa is on the way with a loud siren and flashing lights.

Kids of all ages emerged from their homes — and firefighters were on hand to offer special candy canes to the kids. Between Santa up top and the lights and sirens — some local kids had trouble deciding which was more exciting and were rushing out to see what all of the commotion was about.
