We’ve put out a call to all neighborhood news blogs between here and the North Pole to see if we can get any updates on Santa’s progress southward for tonight’s holiday celebration.

The ripe jolly old elf is scheduled to make an appearance at Corinth Square tonight during the mayor’s Christmas tree lighting celebration. The Corinth and Village Merchants Associations will be hosting their holiday open houses this evening as well. The events will feature food, music and a 20 percent discount on any purchase at select merchants (see the list of participating stores here). The open houses will run from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The tree lighting ceremony is slated to get started at 6 p.m. at Corinth.
