LA CROSSE, WI (WKBT) -

Christmas may still be weeks away, but that's not going to stop Santa Clause from spreading some holiday cheer early.

He traded his reindeer in for a fire truck while getting pulled through the Town of Campbell Sunday.  Santa made several stops before ending at the Community Center for a spaghetti dinner put on by the fire department.  While most stayed bundled up inside,  Santa doesn't mind the cold weather, especially when deciding who is naughty and nice.  "I got some reports that some kinds were kind of not believing anymore," says Santa, "so we come back for the last fifteen years or so we make are annual December ride early to double check on all the kids."

In total, Santa Claus made 9 stops through out the day, greeting kids of all ages.
