Santa Claus is making the rounds ahead of schedule this year. Ol’ Saint Nick made his way to Houston`s Fifth Ward Saturday to deliver toys to good little girls and boys.

Christmas came early at the 18th annual Christmas in the Nickel at Fifth Ward Missionary Baptist Church. Each kid received a wrapped toy, got to visit with Santa, and jam out with The Baby Isaac Crew.

This is all thanks to Texas State Representative Harold V. Dutton, Jr., along with the Phillis Wheatley Foundation and scores of sponsors.

Seeing smiles on kids` faces.  That’s what the holidays are all about.
