A group of South Central Calhoun second-grade students sat down with The Graphic-Advocate recently to offer their theories about how the holiday magic happens.
It all starts, Lila Ferry said, with presents.
“He sends out presents every night, when children are asleep,” Lila said.

Those kids in naughty houses will end up with coal. Everyone agreed on that.
