“Now Dasher! Now Dancer!… On Comet! On Cupid!” Yes kids, there is a Santa Claus and I caught a glimpse of him while visiting the City of North Pole, Alaska, last month. No, I didn’t sit on his lap to tell him I was a good girl this year and share with him my Christmas gift list but I had a chance to interact with some of his nine tiny reindeer and browse Santa Claus House for treasures. (101 St. Nicholas Drive, North Pole. Tel: (907) 488-2200; www.santaclaushouse.com)

With roads named “Santa Claus Lane,” “Mistletoe Drive” and “Holiday Road”, the spirit of Christmas is embraced year ’round in North Pole, located less than a 20-minute drive from Fairbanks. My visit was brief but I snapped a few photos I hope you enjoy.
