Wizard Santa Claus
Not only children, but adults want to believe in a fairy tale, especially Christmas and New Year holidays. And, of course, the protagonists of these days are domestic Santa Claus and American Santa Claus. Both children and adults wait for favorite heroes of fairy tales, thinking in advance what gift to ask, what wish to make.
Dreams come true! And if Santa is still just on his way to you, you can go to visit him yourself. Yes, Santa has an address. He lives in the small American town of North Pole, located in the heart of the cold state of Alaska, near the North Pole. About 2,000 people live in the city.
North Pole is a fairy tale town
On Christmas Eve in the city of Santa the light day is reduced to 4 hours, and frosts reach -30os. For 8 months a year, snow lies here. This is what it is, the true fiefdom of the lord of winter and frost!
The fairytale city has amazing streets – “Holiday Road,” “Snowman Street” and many others with equally magical names.
Lampposts in this city are painted in white and red colors, reminding their appearance of traditional candy, symbolizing the onset of Christmas holidays.
Despite its small size and loss in the snows, the city of Santa cannot be considered detached from civilization. Just 20 kilometres from North Pole is another town, Fairbanks. It even has a university. In the mornings, North Pole residents rush their cars to work in Fairbanks.
Right on the side of the highway leading to Fairbanks, on St. Nicholas Street is the Santa Claus residence. There are numerous tourists who want to meet this fabulous character, as well as buy Christmas souvenirs. It’s impossible to drive past Santa’s house. Painted in white with bright red trim and numerous light bulbs, it calls for everyone passing by.
Several rooms inside Santa’s home are filled with all sorts of toys, Christmas tree decorations and souvenirs. Products made by local craftsmen are located on a shelf with a “Made in Alaska” sign.
Some adults who don’t believe in a miracle grumble, scolding high prices for souvenirs. And children with joyful squeals discover live reindeer near the house ready to lift into the air a sled with Santa Claus and bags of gifts for children. In
the house itself, the children are greeted by the real Santa Claus sitting in a chair. Silent music plays, everyone can approach Santa and ask him to fulfill a cherished desire, get a gift from the hands of a living fairy hero.
The Santa Claus House has already celebrated its 60th anniversary. It was opened in 1952, at the same time North Pole was granted town status. Now the house where Santa lives has gained worldwide fame.
