Community Spotlight: Santa Claus

After a long night delivering presents to boys and girls around the world, Santa Claus can finally put his feet up. The Atlantic estimates that Santa delivers presents to 6,100 children every second, drinking over 34 million gallons of milk along the way.  Santa made dozens of trips to Door and Kewaunee counties to celebrate the Christmas season over the last six weeks, bringing up the rear in parades and sitting in front of thousands of kids listening to their wishes. In Kewaunee County, the jolly old elf looks a lot like Joe Delleman, a Luxemburg resident who worked at the paper mills in Green Bay before his career took him to Bay Shipbuilding. Delleman has been confused with Santa Claus for close to 15 years at different events like Christmas in Casco at the Casco Kidz Zone and brunch at Homestead Kitchen and Tap. While he is flattered by the comparison, Santa is just happy he is able to bring a little Christmas magic to everyone he meets.

Santa says he is looking forward to sitting in his recliner, finishing off the last few cookies from the night before, and watching the Packers play. Last year, Trent Snyder from Bridge Up Brewing shared his thoughts on helping fill in for Santa for Christmas events in Door County.
