Several people, getting into the holiday spirit at Tuesday’ Bank of Oklahoma tree lighting.

The Emerson Elementary School choir helped, singing Jingles Bells to kick off the bank's 13th annual event. This year, BOk also partnered with the Reaching Hands group, giving gifts to homebound seniors, just in time for Christmas.

Amanda Honehner with Bank of Oklahoma: "we gave the gifts to them just in time for Christmas and it's simple things like a pair of socks or a pair of gloves, things that the seniors can't get out and get themselves."

The students also got a surprise visit from Santa Claus himself.
