Local postal worker dresses as Santa to deliver mail

GAINESVILLE, Fla., (WCJB) -- A local postal worker is giving Santa a helping hand this holiday season.

Kevin Jarnol has been dressing up as Santa around the office for the last decade.

But this year, he decided to take the costume to the streets and deliver mail in the outfit.

"So far, all the kids come out running and I give them candy canes and give them mail and packages and they really enjoy it," said Jarnol.

Jarnol says he's a major Christmas fan, and he's happy to bring seasonal cheer to the community.
