A Very Special Interview – Meet the Dahlonega Elf!

Okay, our first – and most important -- question ... Do you believe in Santa Claus?

Do I believe? Of course I believe. I sit right next to him on the sleigh each Christmas Eve. Plus he signs my paycheck!

What’s it like to ride on a sleigh drawn by all those reindeer?

It’s exhilarating – a great power takeoff – it’s like being launched by a rocket, then the ride settles down and it’s incredibly smooth. The reindeer tend to pull a bit to the right, but that’s just so we can get around the whole world dropping off presents for good little girls and boys well before sunrise.

There’s absolutely nothing like Christmas in Dahlonega, Georgia.

We could end the entire conversation there, but you probably want some details, right? And perhaps you might need to be convinced.

Well, we could start with the fact that Dahlonega’s Old Fashioned Christmas has been around for longer than most folks can remember; that the hundreds of thousands of lights all around the city’s historic Square are lit, all at once, at exactly 6 pm on Friday, November 27, and those lights stay shimmering bright throughout the holiday season and even into January of next year. Merchants stay open late on weekends for shopping convenience, luminarias are lit on Friday, December 4 and The Historic Holly Theater, Dahlonega’s delightfully intimate and acoustically perfect performance space will host the perennial favorite Miracle on 34th Street throughout the month of December.
