Operation Santa Claus, the annual Marine Corps event, gathered thousands of disabled children from all across New York City to celebrate Christmas with Santa Claus at Hangar 19 at JFK Airport. Santa Claus rode in on a Delta jet, accompanied with Mrs. Claus. The two rode around on a train waiving, blowing kisses and spreading the Christmas spirit to the many children in the audience. Those in attendance received snacks and refreshments and were entertained by characters such as clowns, dancers, carolers, a marching band and the St. Francis College Terrier mascot. The children were given gift bags and sang Christmas carols until Santa Claus arrived. — by Michael Florio
