Follow Melvin and Marvin on their next adventure. This time I found them at Bel Tree Farm in Salina, Kansas. It takes a lot of work to build and paint all those candy canes in time for Santa's visit. They wanted to ride the miniature donkeys but ended up riding the four-wheeler instead. Go to the farm; it has a beautiful holiday atmosphere. If you weren't in the Christmas spirit before, you would be by the time you leave.
St. Nick, St. Nicholas, Father Christmas, Santa, Kris Kringle, Christkind, Sinterklaas, de Kerstman (The Christmas Man), Pere Noel, (Father Christmas), I could go on and on. Did you know there are over 70 different names/alias for a bearded, jolly, sleigh loading fellow that those in my household call Santa Claus or just plain old Santa?
Did you know that there is even debate on which direction the toe of the Christmas stocking should be pointed? 95% believe it should point to the right... I personally believe that Santa doesn’t care and that he will leave you yummy treats anyway.
