You never know who you’ll run into before Christmas. Chris Chandler (as in Kris Kringle) was spotted Dec. 24 (Christmas Eve) at Food City. The twinkle in his eye was unmistakable: Santa! And not far away was Caiden Aruda, whose smile showed his excitement. Chris lives in Brushy Valley, and the boy and his family, in Dutch Valley. Chris plays Santa every year at various places.
