    We have inflatables up some lights a Nativity and I add to it everyday. A couple days ago we had this in the mailbox just as you see it. It was the bright spot in our day. Has me thinking this really helps.

    I'm with you, Doug! My neighbors dared me to put up my Christmas lights. HA! My lights will be on all night, every night until these crazy corona virus days have past. God bless America! Anyone with us? Santas?

    I put my Christmas lanterns back out, and they will stay out for as long as I feel they provide a sense of hope. I'm also putting together small bags of candy canes for neighbors children. I give them to their parents so they can give them out as they see fit.

    I'm sure many seasoned Santa's already know this, but I thought it might be helpful to share this bit of information here for any new Santa's like myself: there is some very lovely Santa Claus Oath merchandise for sale over on the Santa's Drill Team website.

    have not ever seen this before . . . Inside Brazil's Abandoned Santa Theme Park Francesca Street, CNN - Updated 4th December 2018 (CNN) — Driving through Brazil to Rio de Janeiro, you might spot an eerie sight on the side of the road: a derelict gang of Santas, lying abandoned surrounded by palm trees and greenery. Look closely and you'll see these Father Christmas clones aren't alone. There's a sad looking sleigh and dilapidated reindeer nearby. Soon you'll spot the faded candy canes, battered slides and an eerie house. Welcome to Park Albanoel, in Itaguaí, Brazil -- an abandoned Christmas theme park. The park was the brainchild of politician Antonio Albano Reis, colloquially known as the "Santa Claus of Quintino" because he dressed as Santa each Christmas. It was going to be a series of fun, themed-lands over an expansive area -- over 30 million square meters -- but only the Santa area was completed. Following Reis' death in a road accident in 2004, Park Albanoel closed and fell into disrepair.

THE MOJAVE DESERT, WITH ITS blisteringly hot summer sun, Joshua trees and bizarre rock formations, would not generally be the place one would choose to honor a man whose traditional home is the North Pole. Yet standing in the desert is the ghost remnants of Santa Claus, Arizona.

A ONCE-GRAND AND AMBITIOUS NORTH-POLE-THEMED amusement park, Santa’s Village in California, sat abandoned on the aptly named Rim of the World Highway. Several years later, the park has re-opened as a scenic outdoor amusement park with activities and attractions for all ages. Source: https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/santas-village-2
