Enormous Inflatable Santa Claus Mysteriously Pops Up In Texas Neighborhood
Residents of the festive-sounding Hollytree neighborhood in Tyler, Texas were surprised and delighted by the sudden appearance of an enormous inflatable Santa Claus on La Costa Drive. You know what they say…everything is bigger in Texas. But where did it come from?
According to KETK-TV, the gargantuan St. Nick just showed up out of nowhere. It sits on a vacant lot in Hollytree. Since then, it has been a big hit with folks in the neighborhood, especially kids. The merry inflatable has been attracting visitors from elsewhere as well. Locals from the Tyler area have been coming in droves to take family photos and post them on social media.
So who might have placed the colossal Kris Kringle there? Hollytree resident Marsha Daugherty told KETK-TV, “Nobody lives on this lot, so we don’t know who installed Santa. But isn’t that fun?” Some see it as welcome sign for the real Santa Claus later this month. Or maybe it’s someone’s commentary on America’s economic inflation.
No matter who put it there or why, this sounds to me like the makings of a new Christmas movie on the Hallmark Channel. Coming next holiday season: “Magical Mystery Claus” – Seeing it is magical. Where it came from is the mystery.
