Legendary Santa’s Stories from the Chair

Original air date: December 23, 2011

“Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus! He is Legendary Santa and he has made Richmond, Virginia his home for 75 years. From the day after Thanksgiving to the afternoon of Christmas Eve, Legendary Santa, sitting in his great gilded chair amidst the twinkling lights of Santa Land, listens to the Christmas wishes of thousands of youngsters and the young at heart. Generations of Richmonders have made visiting Legendary Santa a cherished Christmas tradition since he first set up shop downtown at the grand flagship store of Miller and Rhoads. His followers come from across town, as well as from across the country. They all make their pilgrimage, from near or far, because of one pure and enduring belief…this is the real Santa.”
