Wordless Wednesday: Ho! Ho! Ho! Visiting North Pole, Alaska
“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.

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.
