Believe It or Not: an oversized 80th anniversary

By santa-admin on December 18, 2011 in A Day at the Museum Town History with 1 Comment

Today marks the 80th anniversary of a big day in Santa Claus town history. Big might be an understatement. It’s more like an oversized day in town history, specifically for the Santa Claus Post Office. On this day in 1931, Santa Claus postmaster James Martin hand-canceled what was said to be the largest postcard mailed […]
