St. Charles Christmas Traditions


With so many elves to do the heavy lifting during the run-up to Christmas, the Santas of the world are free to converge on historic St. Charles' cobblestoned Main Street to spread some holiday cheer and dole out collectible Christmas trading cards. All of your favorite Santas are here, including the kilt-wearing "Scottish Santa," the pioneering "Frontier Santa", the North and South Pole unifying "Civil War Santa," and of course, everyone's favorite -- the "Scandinavian Santa," jolly old Julenisse and his pet goat Yuley.
