KNOXVILLE (WATE) – A special guest hopes to get Knoxville shoppers in the Christmas spirit a little early this year. If you’ve always wanted to take your kids to get their pictures taken with Santa, now’s your chance.
Santa Claus set up shop for the season at West Town Mall on Thursday. He was taking pictures and gift requests from kids of all ages, but Santa himself has one request this holiday season.
“I really want every child to smile. I want everyone to be happy, and to be merry, and to have a really wonderful Christmas,” said Santa..
Santa will be at the mall every day until Christmas Eve, except for Thanksgiving.
