Santa Claus is already in town

GRIN # 331

I don’t know what I’ve done to my son that he’s banned all mythical figures from his childhood: Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy and, of course, Santa Claus. (“That beard! It just freaks me out!”)

BUT, in the event that your kids are normal and actually WANT to go sit on his lap and ask for their heart’s desires (who wouldn’t??), then I have good news for you.

You don’t have to go to the mall to see Santa.

Santa lives among us.

Specifically, he lives at 605 Longton Hall Court in Apex.

In his back yard is a 25-foot tall Christmas tree made of strings of lights. You can see it from Hwy. 55, it’s so tall.

The entire house is lit up. And from 7 to 9 pm every night from December 12 to December 23, the family opens their garage–outfitted with hearth, fireplace, Santa chair, trains, tv, presents–to the community. The  man dresses in a Santa suit with all the trimmings and sees the kids. His wife dresses as Mrs. Claus. It’s awesome.

Around the back of the house is more lights, including the giant Christmas tree you can see from the road. On your way out, grab a few candy canes and you’re done.

We checked it out last night and it was beautiful.

I don’t know the family, but they’ve got to be pretty special. We got there before 7 last night and the whole family was in the living room watching TV. They waved at us.

Freaky? A little. But special too.

Check it out.
