Every year, on a Sunday morning in early December, the cacophonous noise of fire truck horns and sirens announce the arrival of Santa Claus to visit the children of Waldwick. The sirens also announce that Santa will be available at Borough Hall to listen to kid’s wish lists. There will also be toys and games, from which each child can select a gift. Any toys left over will be given to organizations that can give them to needy children.] Over the years, Santa has noticed children of ALL ages - from one to 99 years-old - peering out of doors and windows witnessing St. Nick’s arrival.
