My breakfast with Santa

Santa’s list was pretty long after he had breakfast with scores of small children on Sunday.

More than 50 children came from across Brooklyn to brunch with Santa and dance with Radio Disney at the Aviator Sports and Events Center on Dec. 15.

“I was dancing so much,” said 6-year-old Jalil Gasby of Red Hook. “All the music was good.”

The morning started with a breakfast of eggs, pancakes, and bacon. Kris Kringle sat at the head of a table.

Then Radio Disney started a series of games, including trivia about Disney shows and character games, including Four Corners. The kids also got to sing along with Radio Disney hits including One Direction’s “Story of My Life,” Ylvis’s “What Does the Fox Say,” and Katy Perry’s “Roar.”

The kids also got to give Santa their wish lists — providing they were good boys and girls.

“I told Santa I was a good boy,” said 6-year-old Christian Beye. “I told him I would like a helicopter.”

Christian’s mom, Loriann Beye, said her son had a terrific time.

“He wants to go back there every year,” she said.
