First photo: Santa listens as Haiku's Paz Brown, 4, explains that he has been a good boy the past year during Saturday's eighth annual Holiday Celebration in Makawao. Santa Craig Lofton said Maui kids seem to have been on very good behavior in 2013. "I ask them if they have been good or bad, and so far the answers have been 100 percent they have been good," he said. He added that kids generally answer the question honestly. When asked what he would like for Christmas, Paz said he wanted a globe. Santa's free booth was stationed in front of the Makawao Public Library; kids also received a candy cane and a free book from the Maui Friends of the Library.
