The holly, jolly dude is again coming to Smyrna.

The city is hosting “Coming Home for The Holidays” on Tuesday, which will mark the arrival of Santa Claus.

It all starts at 5 p.m. on the Village Green with free hot cocoa on the front porch of the community center and a 20-minute performance from Cumberland Christian Academy’s Patriot Singers in the center’s large gym.
