(STACKER) – Can you imagine living in a city where it’s Christmas all year round? From random names like Garland and Snowflake to over-the-top Christmas celebrations (like the city that changed its name to a Secret Santa website), cities across the country happily take their wintry names – regardless of the season or climate.

Using information from the United States Census Bureau, Stacker found 29 cities across America with names that embody the spirit of Christmas. Some cities take the festivities more seriously than others – think Christmas streets, year-round Christmas attractions, and huge Christmas markets – while others ponder the story behind the season. Let’s take a virtual sleigh ride across America as we learn more about these festively named locations and their different celebrations.

Dasher, Georgia

Located at the southern end of Georgia, Dasher was named not for any of Santa’s reindeer, but for the Daescher family who settled in the country. Even so, the city celebrates the Christmas holidays with traditional festivals such as Christmas carols.

St. Marys, Georgia

The coastal town of St. Marys is located on the Georgia-Florida state line and takes its name from the St. Marys River. You probably won’t see snowflakes in this temperate southern area, but you can still get in the spirit of the season. Their annual Christmas in the Park event is held by the water and features a trolley and free stockings for kids.

Santa Claus, Georgia

Located west of Savannah, Santa Claus is a place where residents can get as much Christmas cheer as possible (though the city is only 0.2 square miles). Streets have names like Candy Cane Road and December Drive, and happy old St. Nick himself greets visitors on a sign marking the entrance to town.

Located near the southern Alabama border, Evergreen was named for its lush foliage. The name creates a festive atmosphere in December – the city lines its main street with Christmas trees and hosts an annual Christmas market and parade.

Christmas, Florida

Christmas City is just a short drive east of Orlando. It was named after Fort Christmas, which was built on Christmas Day 1837 during the Second Seminole War. People from all over the country send mail through the Christmas Post Office to get the postmark on their Christmas cards.
