As a young girl I loved Christmas my father worked in the cole mines deep in the mountains of Harlan county Kentucky my dad was a proud hard worker man but despite that the mines started closing we barely had money for food and housing little on money for Christmas presents it was the same story on every door you knocked on but God sent a angel to the poor children of Harlan Co his name is Mike Howard but I knew him as Santa Claus and every Christmas since 1975 he his family and volentereers fill up the back of there trucks with donated toys and set off making sure every child gets a gift and a goody bag with fruit nuts and a candy cane it’s something to behold my Santa Claus didn’t come in a sleigh but in a big red truck with lights a flashing and Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn Christmas Carol’s playing over a loud speaker what was it that made a man want to dedicate his life to bringing smiles to the poor cole miners children on Christmas Eve for a many of us children that’s the only gift we received Mike Howard is no longer with us he passed away five years ago but his legacy will live on forever his family continues to do his work to this day I am not a writer but I do feel there is a story to be told here in Harlan Kentucky of a man know as the real Santa the Mountain Santa
