GREENCASTLE, PA. - During the second Friday of Heritage Christmas in Greencastle, children could be seen crowded around clowns, waiting for a photo with Santa Claus or busily decorating gingerbread cookies. Adults might have chosen to take a ride on the horse and buggy or warm up with a cup of hot chocolate or apple cider. The lights on Greencastle's 35-foot Christmas tree illuminated the center square, which was lined with vendors selling their wares or giving away cookies and hot drinks.

HALFWAY - With her indulgent family looking on, 6-year-old Foxy shared her secret wishes with Santa Claus. Then she sniffed his beard. No matter Foxy's heart's desire, she probably will find it wrapped under the Christmas tree and tied with a bow. The dog has everything. "She was a pirate this year. She was Tinkerbell last year. We have nail polish for her ... Paris Hilton has nothing on her," said Tasha Spitzer, who listed some of the outfits in her dog's wardrobe as a stranger patted Foxy's head.

Review You think you get the "bah, humbugs" at Christmas time? In "The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause," Santa feels worse than you ever could. Scott Calvin (played by Tim Allen) is an ordinary guy who became Santa Claus in the first movie in the "Santa Clause" series. Christmastime is especially hard for Santa this year. Baby Claus is due any time, and holding his family together while preparing for Christmas is tough. While Santa tries to handle both, his jealous competitor, Jack Frost, plots to replace the big guy in the red coat.
