Visiting Santa Claus
It’s the season to visit the man in the hat! I absolutely love logging into social media to see pictures of my friends’ kids’ visits with Santa.

|I have to admit, I love sharing pics of my fur kids and Santa Paws.|
|Apparently Santa no longer comes to Petsmart so we had to settle for an iPad pic with a Santa filter.|
It’s been a little while since I’ve had a little chat with the big guy.
|Every year my sister and I would get dressed in matching velvet Christmas dresses to let Santa know what we wanted under the tree.|
So, when I saw there was a Santa Claus, Indiana during my road trip St. Louis, I knew I had to take a short detour when I returned to Kentucky from visiting my parents.
If there were two words I would use to describe Santa Claus, Indiana they would be tourist trap. Most of the businesses are holiday themed, and there are plenty of opportunities to buy holiday related tchotchkes.
|I had no idea Santa sponsored a liquor store.|
|You name the Christmas decoration, the Christmas Store has it.|
|While I was there I had a little chat with the man in the hat. He wouldn't tell me which list I was on, but he appreciated the fact that I was visiting incognito.|
|I took a lunch break at the Brick Oven Pizza restaurant. The pizza tasted like rubber, but they had free wi-fi. I used my visit there to fill out a couple of post cards for my nieces and nephew.|
|The post office is located at the end of the strip mall, so if you want to send a card with a Santa Claus post mark drop in to the post office!|
|The strip mall also has a variety of plastic Santa statues that make for great selfies.|
|If you happen to visit the area in the summer, there is a rickety holiday themed amusement park that may warrant a visit. In the winter there are nightly light shows on Lake Rudolph.|
Keep in mind if you want to visit Santa Claus, Holiday World is only open in the summer, and the Santa Claus Christmas Store is only open from May-Dec 31st. To check for happenings in Santa Claus, check out http://www.santaclausind.org . Happy Holidays!
