Let Santa know your Christmas wish:

Call: 616-459-4881

Tweet: @GRTVsanta

This Monday, from 6-7 p.m., Santa Claus will be in the GRTV studio, accepting calls and reading tweets live for the annual GRTV Santa Call-In Show

The show, which has been run annually, had take a haitus for a few years, but is being revived this year as Santa once again has found time in his schedule to talk to Grand Rapids area kids of all ages about their Christmas wishes. A recent Santa Call-In Show from 2012 can be seen here.

The special event has become quite a GRTV tradition, but this is the first year that it'll also be appearing on The Rapidian. The show will be airing live on cable access GRTV on Channel 25 as well as streaming live right here on this article on The Rapidian.

Calls to Santa can be made directly to 616-459-4881 during the show, and tweets to @GRTVsanta, sent ahead of the show or during the live event, will be read live on air.
