Any little believers in your house?
They're probably getting itchier (as my mom would say) with each passing day as Christmas approaches. It's so hard to wait!
Have they written to Santa yet? It's such a wonderful tradition.
If you plan to be in town this weekend, please stop by the Santa Claus Museum to deliver your letters - or even sit right down and write to Santa during your visit!
Holly the Elf will be there. She'll be sure Santa sees your child's letter and sends a nice letter back.
If you need to mail that letter from home, here's the address: Santa Claus, PO Box 1, Santa Claus IN 47579.
Parents, please be sure there's a clearly written return address included.
And if you'd like to add a donation to help pay for postage, the Santa's Elves truly appreciate it.
Merry Christmas to all!

It has been 71 years since the bombing at Pearl Harbor - the attack that pulled the United States into World War II.
A young Navy Reserve officer from Santa Claus, Indiana, had been called into active duty just a few months prior. Lt. Commander Bill Koch was sent to Pearl Harbor soon after the bombing. He served as Ship Superintendent, responsible for repairing the hull and structural portions of the ships that were damaged in the attack on Pearl Harbor and the Pacific fleet. One of the major ship-repair jobs he was responsible for involved the U.S.S. Indiana.
Today we remember the heroic acts of so many on that day and the months and years following. We honor the lives lost and remember how precious freedom really is.
