Grace Munie, 5, of Belleville, gets a call from Santa while her mom, Lisa Munie, captures the scene. Video submitted by her dad, Mark Munie.


Five-year-old Grace Munie of Belleville was one of the lucky kids who talked to Santa this year as part of a Belleville Parks and Recreation Department program.

Grace's parents sent the BND a cute video of her excitedly talking to Santa.

Every year since the mid-1970s, volunteers call metro-east children who want to talk to Santa. The Belleville Parks and Recreation Department organizes the effort.

Earlier this month, the BND took of video of Perry Nowak and his daughter, Paige, talking to Grace.

After that video was posted at, Grace's dad, Mark Munie, submitted the video taken by Grace's mom, Lisa Munie.
