Reasons To Visit Santa Claus, Indiana This Holiday

I thoroughly enjoy Christmas, it is one of my favorite holiday throughout the year. I love all the decorations, the lights, the merriment and festivals, the parades. Everything is so happy and cozy.  If you love the holidays as much as I do you need to head over for some holiday fun in Santa Claus, Indiana.  Named one of the “12 of the best places to spend Christmas 2014” by CNN and one of “Travel’s Best Holiday Attractions 2014” by Travel Channel last year, Santa Claus, Indiana, will host the 2016 Santa Claus Christmas Celebration the first three weekends of December.
