Santa began receiving Westborough kids' Christmas lists Sunday night, visiting town exactly one month before the holiday.
With "Here Comes Santa Claus" echoing through downtown Westborough, Santa arrived at the rotary by Westborough fire engine for the Rotary Club of Westborough's Festival of Lights annual tree lighting ceremony.
Santa then took his special seat in front of the World War II and Korean War memorial. One by one (and in some cases, two by two), kids shared their holiday wish lists with him, and then received a candy cane.
The Rotarians provided "the lights, the electricity and everything that lights this town for the winter season," club President Kathy Wilfert told the crowd.
The Westborough High School Choral Group sung carols before Santa arrived.
