Movie features town of Santa ClausDecember 17, 2018
From Local Sources
SANTA CLAUS — Hallmark Channel’s “Christmas Across America” will include the famous Christmassy town of Santa Claus, Indiana, at 6 p.m. CT today.
Host Candace Cameron Bure will guide viewers in a special segment showcasing Christmassy places in America. Audiences will likely remember Bure from her role as D.J. Tanner on “Full House.”
Viewers will learn about the history of how letters to Santa are answered each year by a volunteer organization in Santa Claus. The tradition of helping Santa answer letters started in 1914.
“We are thrilled for the town to be included in the Hallmark Channel’s ‘Christmas Across America’ with Candace Cameron Bure,” said Melissa Arnold, executive director of the Spencer County Visitors Bureau. “This small-but-famous town is certainly extra special during the holiday season and we’re excited to share it with families from near and far.”
Santa Claus hosts a three-weekend celebration of family fun during the first three weekends of December. This weekend is the final celebration weekend for 2018 with events that include Christmas Dinner with Santa, Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire at Santa’s Candy Castle, Christmas Lake Village Festival of Lights, Santa Claus Land of Lights and more.
