Taxi Driving Santa 

Santa was making the rounds in Rockland as a taxi driver for Schooner Bay Taxi. The taxi service hired St. Nick to make some rounds after the co-owners saw him at the American Legion Christmas celebration. Renita Merritt who co-owns Schooner Bay Taxi with her husband says they thought it might be a great idea to put Santa behind the wheel. She says, “We thought he’d pick up a lot of family members and such and we really thought it’d be great to have Santa cover for a couple of days for us, and he graciously agreed to do it.” As Santa has been making the rounds, he’s also been making the kids smile. He says, “They seem to enjoy it too cause it’s festive, and we give them candy canes and wish them a Merry Xmas.” Santa will be headed back to the North Pole tonight.
