Earlier this month, the town of Branson, Mo. rang with the laughter of more than 800 Santas and Mrs. Clauses during the largest-ever Santa convention. Discover Santa 2016 gave Santas the opportunity to share insights on the art of being the world’s merriest man.

Christmas in July rarely gets as much attention as its December counterpart. But this year, more than 800 jolly Santas and Mrs. Clauses celebrated in style in Branson, Mo., at Discover Santa 2016. The largest-ever Santa convention brought together a crowd of St. Nicks from all over the country to share tricks of the trade and celebrate the importance of year-round Santa spirit.

For this family, every Christmas is special

To commemorate the return of this refreshing twist on a holiday favorite, Sprite wants to showcase another fun but lesser known spin on a classic tradition…The Legend of St. Rick. So, every time you see the red cranberry can, you'll think
For many people, the next few weeks are likely to be filled with trains, planes and automobiles. Making your way through the holiday season often requires making your way to somewhere else altogether, from visiting family a few states over, to taking an exciting New Year's trip across the country.
