Reporters from NJ.com, Curbed Philadelphia, Penn Live, and CBS 3 Fox Chasing News came aboard the SS United States to cover Santa’s inspection of the region’s largest chimney — the ship’s six-story-tall forward smokestack.

Although his reindeer were too shy to speak to the media, Santa shared some wise advice for parents and children alike. For quotes from Santa, photos of the ship ablaze with lights, and commentary from supporters who attended the event in person, check out the following pieces: “Santa boards SS United States for Christmas inspection,” “On board the SS United States ship for its historic lighting,” “Santa makes a visit to light up the sky in Philadelphia,” “United States of Christmas,” and this fantastic video by Bill Magee, “Santa Helps Light the Stacks.”
