It’s hard to believe the existence of Santa Claus, but the fact is, there is Santa Claus. Not a person, but a city/town.
Santa Claus is a town located in Indiana, United States. Originally, the town was named Santa Fe but when it was working to establish a Post Office, the US Postal Service refused their application due to name duplicate. Meetings were held and Santa Claus was selected as the city name.
According to 2000’s census, the town is home to approximately 2,200 residents. Santa Claus is one-of-a-kind town in a sense that everything is themed after Christmas. As you stroll down the city, you will surprisingly see Santa Claus statue once every mile. The naming of the street, lakes, restaurant, theme park and even highway is also themed after Christmas. Some of the popular names are: Christmas Lake, Lake Holly, and Lake Noel, which are the three lakes surrounding the town, and Christmas Boulevard, which is the main highway through town. Santa Claus is also the home of several attractions including: Santa’s Candy Castle, Santa Clause Museum, Frosty the Snowman Center, and Christmas Lake Gold Course.
Santa Claus is the world’s only post office to bear the name of Santa Claus. Because of that, the post office receives thousands of Christmas’ wishes letters from children all over the world each year during Christmas time. To deal with massive mail, they establish a group known as “Santa’s Elves” to ensure each child receives a reply from Santa Claus. MERRY X-MAS!
