Santa Tour

I don't really have a collection of Santa's but thought it might be fun to look around and see how many Santa's I could find displayed this year.

I've had this first one a long time. He has a long straw like beard and I usually hang him from the door knob!


Here's a cute candle holder Santa that I got at an ornament exchange a couple of years ago. In the back ground do you recognize a special little Santa?

I have 4 of these long legged Santa's from Dept. 56. I bought these several years ago on sale after Christmas. This year they are used in my Christmas card display.
And here is a light bulb Santa hanging on my tree...I have two of these.
This Santa sits in the middle of the North Pole Village houses on the sideboard.
I think Connor's favorite is the one on the sideboard. Cooper seems to like the long-legged ones...he walks up to those and says "Ho, Ho, Ho!"

Enjoyed seeing your unique Santas. Come to think of it I guess all Santas are somewhat unique.

I love all the different Santa's you've collected over the years...the ones with long legs are my favorite. Of course, that sweet little boy in the picture is a "keeper". :)

You have a great collection of Santas. The long-legged one reminds me of the old Raggedy Anns. I love it! And I really like the one sitting on the sideboard too. By the way - what a beautiful sideboard! Thanks for sharing.

Cute Santas! I've thought collecting the Father Christmas kind - so old-fashioned!

I love all Santas so I enjoyed seeing your collection, Diane! It is so cute that Cooper can say Santa's "Ho Ho Ho" and I bet Conner will be leaving milk and cookies for Santa!
Hugs, Pat
