“It's a statue....”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

Um, not sure what else to say about it. It's a statue of Santa. Lots of nostalgia with it with the residents of Santa Claus, I imagine, but to me, I just took a few pictures and that was it. It is on the same property as the museum.

“Stunning at night!”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

I don't usually get excited about statues, but this Santa statue is just stunning. The town must be so proud to have its original attraction restored so beautifully. A must-see year round.

“So Nice to See Santa Restored!”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

I never expected to write a review of a statue, but it made me so happy to see it restored!

On our last trip through Santa Claus, IN I was able to see that the classic statue that seemed to be neglected for so long was finally getting some much needed attention.

I now see that it will join the just-moved old church, the just-moved old post office and the new Santa Claus museum, which should make a terriffic place to stop each time I'm in town.

Can't wait until summer to see it all complete!
