BURTON (AP) – Santa Claus arrived at a Michigan shopping mall Saturday not by sleigh, but by helicopter.

It’s the second straight year that Santa has flown into the parking lot of Burton’s Courtland Center riding in the passenger seat of a helicopter.

Once on the ground, Santa walked around, hugging children and parents, warming his hands and talking about his shaky flight.

He was heard saying to one young man: “It’s a little windy up there. It’s not like the sleigh.”
