Reason for the Season

The Collinsville Education Center received a very special visitor Wednesday. Santa visited the children to hear what they want for Christmas.

And the center's Teri Glover explained what it tries to teach kids about Christmas.

"We let them exchange gifts here, and they give each other gifts," Glover said. "We've also adopted a family, so we're trying to teach them what started it, the birth of Christ, and that it's not just about giving and receiving gifts."

Glover said this is a very merry Christmas for her. Her husband, Mike, is coming home Christmas Eve from Iraq. He is a member of the 185th Aviation Group out of Jackson.
