'Big man' looking forward to beach visitLONG BEACH - "Ho, ho, holy cow! I can't believe it's time to come out to the beach again!" said a surprised Kris Kringle Monday in a telephone interview from his North Pole residence. "I've been so busy in my workshop making toys for all the good boys and girls of the world, I guess I lost track of time!"

Mr. Kringle, also known throughout the world as "St. Nick," "Father Christmas," "The big fat man with the long white beard," and most notably, "Santa Claus," is indeed coming to town.
