You better watch out - Santa is on his way and Irish American kids couldn’t be more excited
With hours to go until Santa arrives we hear about the wish list
It's that time of the year again. Little boys and girls all around the globe are counting down the hours until Santa comes down their chimney weighed down with gifts, and Irish American kids are no exception.
“Santa is going to bring me a pink Ariel princess kitchen and pink socks and, oh ya, maybe pink rabbit stompies,” says three-year-old Mackenzie O’Regan, who lives in Yonkers.
Born to Sharon (from Co. Clare) and Don (from Co. Limerick), Mackenzie is prepared to share some of her toys with her one-year-old sister Khloe, and if she still has stuff left over she will “give some of my toys to the little children that don’t have any.”
Three-year-old Conor Lenihan told the Irish Voice he hopes Santa brings him a bike and some Handy Manny tools. Speaking on his 10-month-old sister Sarah’s behalf, he said she is “getting a doll and stroller.”
Conor is the son of Co. Kerry-born Valerie and Mike Lenihan, who both live in Yonkers.
When asked what he is most excited about this Christmas, he turned a brow up and said “Santa coming of course.”
Conor did some shopping of his own for his friends and family.
“I bought my nana a bag and my best friend Niamh an Olivia chair,” said Conor, looking at his mom with a thought.
“And what did you get me?” he asks his mom.
Conor’s best friend Niamh Kissane, three, is hoping Santa will bring her a doll's house.
Niamh, daughter of John and Catriona Kissane, also from Kerry, told the Irish Voice that “Santa lives in the North Pole.”
Niamh jumps around in excitement and hugs her little sister Kate, one, while telling us that she bought her friends Conor and Sarah a present too.
“Don’t tell them cause it’s a surprise but I got them a kitchen, and then we are going to eat lots of candy when we play,” she said.
Caitlin Higgins, eight, is excited about Santa’s presents, but is more excited about her family coming from Ireland next week.
“I can’t wait to see my family,” she said, so excited as she sat on her mom Angela’s lap last weekend.
When asked what she is getting from Santa Caitlin said, “You want to know ALL my presents?”
She has a long list but really hopes Santa will bring her a karaoke machine so she can practice her singing.
“My favorite band is the Wanted but I also love Taylor Swift,” said Caitlin, whose mom and dad hail from Co. Louth.
The first song she plans to sing on Christmas morning will be “Sparks Fly” by Swift. “I love that song,” she says.
