MR. SANTA CLAUS OF NEDERLAND

By Tumbleweed.

Earl Gregg lives at Weches, near Crockett. He makes chocolate turtles, peanut patties and pralines for his grandkids at Christmas time. This year he had to make 20 bags full of the sweets. He starts cooking in November to be ready for the holiday. For seven years during the 1980’s, Earl was Mr. Santa Claus in Nederland.

We’d have traffic jams on the street in front of my house.
