Sisters-in-law Ruby Jackson, left and Carrie Jackson, right, of Columbia tell Santa what they want for Christmas at the 2013 Festival of Trees Preview on Nov. 22 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.
(Santa is actually Paul King of "South Carolina’s North Pole, Chapin.") The event features decorated trees, wreaths and other holiday items that are up for bid during a week-long silent auction. The event raises money for the Palmetto Health Foundation. ROB THOMPSON — firstname.lastname@example.org Buy Photo
