Welcome sign.

Town of Santa Claus

There was so much to do in this little town: Santa's Garden and the small chapel, and a small visitor center and gift shop.

Its welcome sign slogan begs the question: Where can we find the "City That Hates Children"...?


Town of Santa Claus

This town is a beautiful and quaint place. The lady Sue opened the gift shop for us. She told us if we sent our stamped Christmas cards she would stamp them with the Santa Claus seal. No charge for it, but they accept donations. Such a neat place. Sue is going to be busy with my cards this year.
