This was a unique town. There are very few towns called, “Santa Claus” and, given the upcoming holidays and the fact that it was so close to Vidalia, I figured I’d stop by. It is super small with street names like “Dancer” and “Holly” and a tiny town hall you can park at when you arrive. There was a store there that seemed abandoned. I’ll skip details and just share a few images. I had hoped to send a postcard from here. Instead, after visiting a bunch of stores nearby and not finding any postcards, I went with holiday cards. There is a mail collection box there so you can have it stamped from “Santa Claus” which I thought was cool.
It was a bit eerie, being set up yet empty as I found it. There were some people there; lawn care workers and children playing in their yard. Other than that, it was pretty bare. I’m really glad I stopped and saw it and got the letters out to people as I did(and the stamp on the envelope did look cool.) I would say that it’s hit or miss and, if you’re in the area, a brief stop may be enjoyable, or a bit weird. Maybe even both! :)
