VIDEO: Too much fun at the Fort Worth Parade of Lights 2010!

What do The Watchdog and Santa have in common?

Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Dave Lieber and his son Austin were honored to represent the newspaper in the 2010 Fort Worth Parade of Lights in downtown Fort Worth. Here’s coverage of the float and its 10,000 lights on KTXA-Channel 21.

“Santa’s Office” is the name of the float, and it contains a “Naughty & Nice” list and also giant bags of letters to Santa.

The Watchdog notes the similarities. He’s got a “Naughty & Nice” list, too. And each week brings bags of mail from folks who aren’t asking The Watchdog for toys. They want some HELP.

TV anchor Karen Borta says in her commentary, “Dave Lieber’s busy and Santa’s busy this time of year, you know it!”

“Most definitely,” co-anchor Keith Garvin says.

Here’s the video:
