When you work in a town named Santa Claus, you never know who might stop by … but some days we're all just amazed.
And we just added to them, thanks to Twitter:
Just got to @HolidayWorld letting the little ones ride the bumper boats

If you're an American Idol fan, you know Paul Jolley was a finalist this season.
I did my best to HoliStalk him for a while yesterday, but never managed to catch up with the Jolley man. Guess I was just a fool to think I'd track him down in our 125 acres of fun.
Surely he was never alone, though, as fans recognized him – and were blown away by what a nice guy he is.
Lindsay from Nashville, Illinois, tweeted this great pic yesterday evening.
Since I never did catch up with Paul yesterday (despite his tweeted promise to sing "Hey, Hey Paula" to me), I didn't get to ask, "don't you wanna stay?"
Apparently, the invitation was still heard. His brother tweeted this morning that they're back for another day of family fun.
Indeed, they'll have a Jolley day.
