Christmas has come very early to Berks County.
Santa Claus was spotted Wednesday night at the Chick-fil-A in Exeter Township.
The event was sponsored by CJ's Tire and Automotive Services as part of its campaign to raise money for Operation Nine Reindeer.
The organization works to deliver gifts and special memories to families in need during the holidays.
The fun continues Thursday night at the Reading Fightin Phils game, when players will take the field in bright red "Santa jerseys."
