Christmas in July in the O.C.
Where does Santa go in the summer? Members of the Orange County-based Fraternal Order of Real Bearded Santas (yes, that’s an actual organization) spent summer vacation time here in Southern California at Knott’s Berry Farm. Sixteen shopping-mall Santas even took a ride on the Pony Express roller coaster (right) at the Buena Park theme park. Started in 1994, the international fraternal order now boasts 700 members dedicated to the “joy of being Santa.” Info: www.forbsantas.org
