Each year is a lit­tle dif­fer­ent for Santa when he sits down for break­fast with kids in the An­napo­lis Val­ley.

And with them are dif­fer­ent gift ideas whis­pered in his ear by young kids ex­cited about what they may open up Christ­mas morn­ing.

This year, jolly old Saint Nick said he re­ceived a lot of re­quests for hover boards and L.O.L dolls at the Break­fast with Santa event Dec. 1 at the Port Wil­liams Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

The re­quests were what he ex- pected, he said.

But some things never change, ac­cord­ing to the hol­i­day hall­mark – kids are all very ex­cited to open gifts Christ­mas Morn­ing.

“They al­ways look for­ward to that,” he laughed, with a ho ho ho.

Chil­dren and their fam­i­lies lined up for a hot break­fast and a chance to meet Mr. Claus at the event, and some also had a go at guess­ing how many jelly beans were in­side a jar – some­thing that proved harder than it looked, ac­cord­ing to Gre­gory Fisher, five.

“I think it’s 50 – no, maybe 500 – I don’t know,” he said.

In the end, he set­tled on some­where be­tween the two.
