Kids and families embrace the holiday celebration with Christmas carols and visiting Santa.
Tyler attended the kids' Christmas Social to see what kids want from Santa this year.
Kids and families from Casper get jolly by singing Christmas carols. What better way for spending the holiday weekend?
"Really brings out the spirit of Christmas. You see families coming in, multi-generational people just coming in and enjoying a nice Christmas event."
Along with carols, kids watched Christmas movies and visited with Santa. Families say it's great being around loved ones at this time of year.
"It's nice. You know, Christmas is about family. It's fun for the kids, but you know it's where family all comes together."
"I like being with my family. That sums it up. I like being with my family."
"As kids line up to sit on Santa's lap, they hope to get one more Christmas wish for being good this year."
"I'm looking forward to Christmas to get like a phone or something. I mostly want some like Justin Bieber stuff.
And Seriah's sister tells what she wants too.
"What I mostly want is Nicki Minaj stuff and Hello Kitty."
Besides presents, families send holiday greetings.
"From the Casper Elks Lodge, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and just be safe."
"We just wish everyone a Merry Christmas"
A Merry Christmas indeed. Casper Elks Lodge staff has held the Christmas social for several decades.
