On our recent visit to Santa Claus, Indiana we visit the Santa Claus Christmas Store, located at Kringle Place Shopping Center across the street. This is the place where many festive events take place, and where we enjoyed the Santa Claus Parade, and other festivities during our trip.
We found a huge collection of Christmas gifts as well as indoor and outdoor lights, wreaths, and nativities. Also within the Santa Claus Christmas Store is Mrs. Claus' Sweet Treats, where you can select from treats like fudge, Bavarian roasted nuts, cookies and many more. While Mrs. Claus' Elves were busy filled orders of ornaments and treats, Santa was greeting all the children, and taking photos.
One of the highlights of the evening was the Santa's Great Big LED Tree of Lights. By day, the Tree of Lights looks like a giant Christmas beckon, drawing shoppers and travelers to explore the Santa Claus Museum in the Kringle Place Shopping Center. At night is when the Tree of Lights shines brightest and it part of the annual traditions held in Santa Claus, Indiana.
Presented by the Santa Claus Christmas Store, this tree is 50 foot tall with an eight foot star a top plays music in time with the lights. At first, we were uncertain where the music was coming from, and then we spotted the Big LED Tree of Lights changing colors, and watched in awe along with other shoppers.
After enjoying the light show we visited Santa's Ornament Shop, which also has a nice collection of holiday ornaments, and you can add a personal touch to them. It's such a creative way to remember the holidays. Picking up a new personalized ornaments has become a tradition for many who visit Santa Claus, Indiana.

We loved the variety of ornaments available that made it easy to find something special for our children and relatives. We've found that these are the holiday treasures they cherish from year to year; which makes it even more enjoyable when the ornaments are personalized. And, just outside is a cheerful Santa that makes a perfect spot for a photo that you can add to your Holiday Greetings.
