Santa Claus Shares Favorite Memories from Valley West Mall
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- Santa Claus has been coming to town to gather the Christmas lists from children at Valley West Mall for 23 years. He asks the same question to every child that sits on his lap, “What would you like for Christmas?” This is one of his favorite responses: “He says, ‘Well you know what I want for Christmas, mom said it costs too much money so santa do you have a lot of money?’ Well I said, ‘I don’t know how much you need.’ He says, ‘Well if it’s too much, I’m just going to go see Grampa, Grampa will get me that for Christmas he will always get me big presents,” Santa said.
