Santa Claus, Indiana: Year-Round Festive Cheer in Historical Town According to local legend, the early settlers of present-day Santa Claus, Indiana, had a problem: every time they agreed upon a name for the town, theyrd discover it was already taken. In fact, the small community was known as the lnameless townr until Christmas Eve of 1852. On that wintry night, the villagers were debating names in a log-cabin church, when a gust of wind blew open the door. The unmistakable sound of sleigh bells could be heard over the falling snow. The children cried out, lSanta Claus!r and the town finally had a name. Each December, the Santa Claus Post Office is flooded with hundreds of thousands of letters addressed to olr St. Nick. Each letter received by December 21 receives a reply. Naturally, the townmwhich is Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler's hometownmis a magnet for all things Christmas. Built in the mid-1930s as part of a now-defunct holiday theme park, Santars Candy Castle remains a local landmark. Here you can buy gourmet candy canes, hot chocolate, and other handmade confections. Pop into the Santa Claus Museum to learn more about the history of the town through historical documents, photos, and artifacts. Love to travel?
