Santa’s Village has always been—dare we say it—a magical place for us. Both Maria and I have fond memories of days spent at Santa’s summer home—me on numerous occasions as a child, Maria with her own child—and so when we returned to Canada’s only Christmas-themed park in the summer of 2013 we were pleased to see that it remained as enchanting as ever.
Upon learning that the year of Santa’s Village 60th anniversary was fast approaching, we instantly wanted to write a book to commemorate the milestone. It certainly deserves a book: after all, Santa’s Village means a lot not just to the six million people who have visited the park over the years, but also to the Town of Bracebridge and indeed all of Muskoka.
The result is The Summer Home of Christmas Spirit: 60 Years of Santa’s Village. Available at the Village gift shop, it’s the perfect stocking filler for anyone who has fond memories of Santa’s Village. So settle back in front of the fire, stock up on eggnog and gingerbread cookies and prepare for an enchanting read.
