Santa Sighting in La Jolla (Video)

Santa Claus visited Birch Aquarium in La Jolla on Wednesday before heading to Macy's in Chula Vista as part of the "Believe" campaign raising money for Make-A-Wish.

Santa Claus visited La Jolla a bit early this year. Jolly ‘Ol St. Nick read a story and met with boys and girls on both the naughty and nice lists at Birch Aquarium on Wednesday afternoon.

Santa was in San Diego to let area residents know about the “Believe” campaign, which benefits Make-A-Wish.

Macy’s “Believe” campaign invites children of all ages to mail letters to Santa using Macy’s Santa Mail letterboxes in stores. For each letter mailed in the store, Macy’s will donate $1 up to $1 million to Make-A-Wish.

Santa started his tour after his appearance in the Macy’s Day Parade in New York City on Thanksgiving and will stop in 26 cities in 26 days.

Patch asked Santa about his preparation for the big day, what he wants for Christmas and, of course, about surfing in La Jolla.
