Santa Is Always Popular i l Santa Glaus Day in Algona was a smash hit (as usual) Friday as Mother Nature cooperated, furnishing a perfect early winter day, complete with sunshine. The always-popular large man in the pretty red suit and white whiskers handed out free sacks of candy at his house southeast of the courthouse until his arms must have felt like falling off. Many youngsters attended free shows at the Algona Theater - and the city was crowded with shoppers (besides all the children) who got the first round of Christmas shopping out of the way. And local stores were filled with gift items and ideas for the big day, which is now less than a month away. The three photos above were snapped at Santa'shouse. They show a very small portion of the hundreds of children, young ones accompanied by parents and older ones able to go through the line at least once. And if you think children of all ages don't believe in Santa, take a good look at the expressions on the faces shown.
