Christmas is officially still 45 minutes away. But in one South Valley community, Santa Claus has already visited.Hundreds of kids lined up outside this home in poplar tonight, waiting for old Saint Nick.

Every Christmas Eve Robert Coy dresses up like Santa, and hands out gifts to needy families. Most of the 2,000 presents are donated, but coy makes some of them himself, at his own little workshop.

After waiting in line for hours Santa "Coy" began his annual tradition of passing out toys to all the good girls and boys. It's a tradition these kids waited for all year.

This is the event's 13th year. The coy family says they will keep the tradition going as long as it is supported by the community.
