Christmas bells are ringing: Perham area kids celebrate the season
From meeting Santa to nativity performances, the community of Perham is sure to make its 2021 Christmas a memorable one for all kids in town.
From meeting Santa Claus to reenacting the Nativity, kids all over the Perham area are making Christmas 2021 a memorable one.
At St. Henry's Area School, over 100 students took part in a Christmas celebration on Dec. 15, organized by music teacher Mrs. Silbernagel. Over 30 preschool students sang Christmas songs, followed by the older students performing the play, "On Our Way to Bethlehem," telling and singing the story of the birth of Jesus.
On Dec. 17, Santa and Mrs. Claus stopped by Perham to meet with kids during a Santa Truck event outside United Community Bank. Children were able to get pictures with the jolly couple, along with other wintery characters like the Grinch and Elsa (from the Disney movie, "Frozen"). After the kids told Santa what they wanted for Christmas, they were able to warm up with some free hot chocolate and cookies.
