JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Christmas came early for 75 children in Jackson, who each received a brand-new bike. 

It was part of the "Fun with Santa" event at the Jackson Medical Mall, put on by the Jackson Mississippi Chapter of Jack and Jill of America. Before receiving their shiny new ride, the children climbed atop Santa's lap and explained what they wanted for Christmas. Santa assured the children he would do the best he could. 

"We're very excited. They know all the reindeer and the elves. They asked if I was going back to the North Pole, and of course I told them I was. We're having a lot of fun today," Santa says.

This is the 24th year the Jackson Mississippi Chapter of Jack and Jill of America has put on the Fun with Santa event. 

"I've seen a lot of smiles, I've seen some really happy parents, but the children is why we do it. Our organization is for children," says Mitzi Dease Paige, President of the Jackson Mississippi Chapter of Jack and Jill of America.
