Santa Claus Land, Indiana

The major greeter for Santa Claus Land, is this jolly old get, who waves to every visitor, both young and old, as they enter the grounds at Santa Claus Land.  This statue has been photographed more times than any other statue of Saint Claus in the world.  This is an impressive monument to the patron saint of children, who brings joy to the world, and specially at Christmas Time.

Santa Claus, Indiana, is a town located in Spencer County in Southwest Indiana.

Santa Claus, Indiana, was established in 1854. In 1856, when the town (then known as Santa Fe, pronounced "fee") was working to establish a Post Office, the US Postal Service refused their first application as there was already another Santa Fe, Indiana. Several town meetings were held, during which the name Santa Claus was selected.

The town has the world’s only post office to bear the name of Santa Claus. Because of this popular name, the post office receives thousands of letters to Santa from all over the world each year. A group of volunteers known as "Santa’s Elves" ensures each child receives a reply from Santa Claus; this tradition has been around since at least 1914.
