HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Christmas is just around the corner and one local man is entering his 50th year of being Santa Clause.

Cliff Snider began playing Santa Clause around the holidays 50 years ago when his Methodist youth group asked him to put on the red suit for a mission.

Now half a century later, putting on the red suit still makes "Santa Cliff" jolly.

Recently, he was honored with being nominated to be elected into the International Santa Clause Hall of Fame.
