The Somerville News Weekly’s Special Person of the Week


John Alan Roderick is for sure everybody’s favorite Santa here in The Ville!

From Little League coaching to special community events, John’s participation is always there year round with a smile on his face and with or without his white Santa beard.

In a posting John states:
“Every adult should be Santa Claus at least once in their lives to see Christmas through the eyes of s little kid again. Nothing better! My favorites are the “doubters”. There’s always one or two kids trying to “out” Santa in front of the younger kids. I laugh the whole time–actually laughed until I cried.”

John The Somerville News Weekly salutes you and so doesn’t the good people of the City of Somerville!
