Santa waves American flag

BETHLEHEM — It is not every day you spot Santa waving an American flag. But, yes, he was spotted on Dover Bridge Road near the bridge. He had bells on and a red cap.

When asked ‘How is it going?’ He responded, “About half a mile an hour,” and then he laughed.

It was a little shy of a media frenzy, but WBOC was also reporting on this curious sight. Turns out Santa loves to share his clips of when he has been in the newspaper. He had a whole book of them taped together.

Trucks and cars zoomed by and honked at Santa’s patriotic turn. He waved his flag on a wooden stick and shook the string of bells on his belt.
