Happy Holidays from the KGI blog!

T’was the week before Christmas
and all through the house
not a creature was stirring except for a mouse.
It glided across a pad of bright green
While web pages glowed on a glittering screen
The viewer was tracking a flight of good cheer
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be here....

For your viewing pleasure... the many faces and places that are and have been Santa Claus, brought to you by different government agencies and institutions:

Track Santa's journey around the world
(North American Aerospace Defense Command, NORAD)

Do a search in google for letters to Santa (include the quotes in your search):
"letters to santa" site:gov

This from the Library of Congress:

and this from NASA:

In Search of Santa (Smithsonian Institute)

And I heard him exclaim as he flew out of sight....

Happy Holidays to all from the State Library of Kansas!
