Walking with Superman: Day 149
Santa Claus, Indiana bills itself as America's Christmas Hometown. The shops and attractions are all Christmas-themed, and a group of volunteers called Santa's Elves help to answer Kris Kringle's prodigious stacks of mail. It's safe to say that the town of Santa Claus really gets into the holiday spirit. Even so, what Superman finds when he arrives in the festive village is a little excessive. Everywhere he looks, he sees white beards and twinkling eyes, cherry-noses and jelly-bellies, as every man, woman, and child in the town is transforming into Kris Kringle! If Superman doesn't find the source of the strange Santafication soon, the skies on Christmas Eve will be filled with two thousand extra Santas--and one of them might be wearing a bright red cape! Ho ho hurry, Superman!
