From top, Becky Jensen makes sure her daughter Halley likes Santa this year. At the Christmas Carnival at the Skagway School on Dec. 8, it took a while, but Santa finally won her over. Sister Amanda seems to like him just fine; Town Crier Gary Brummett welcomes Shirley Mitchell to the Open House at the Arctic Brotherhood Hall. Open Houses at the Mascot, AB Hall and White Pass & Yukon Route Railrioad Depot kicked off Yuletide weekend; Jacob “Yasha” Saldi, Alexandra Weber, Jordan Vinje, Sunny Cotton, Trevor Cox, and Nikita Ford sing for the crowd at the tree lighting in the Eagles Hall. It was blowing too hard to hold it outside; and Daniel Brady dances for Alexandra at the ball.
