Santa Claus arrives at the Cambridgeside Galleria

CAMBRIDGE (WHDH) - Santa Claus was sailing in style at the Cambridgeside Galleria.

He is kicking off the Christmas season this Black Friday, greeting crowds as he arrived at the mall.

People who waited early to meet Saint Nick even received a special gift.

Santa made his way into the mall where kids lined up to sit on his knee, take pictures and tell them what they want this year for Christmas.
