November 24, 2021 – Did you know that when Santa delivered surprises to children on Sanibel in the past, he probably used a mule to help him? At the Sanibel Historical Village, we know that mules were able to survive the mosquitoes better than other work animals. So, wanting to keep Rudolph and the other reindeer safe, Santa probably used a local mule – a “Yule Mule” – while spending Christmas Eve on Sanibel. This holiday sticker shows what Santa might have looked like on that festive night.
Come visit the Historical Village’s “Yule Mule” and write a letter to Santa at the same time. There is a letter-writing station set up with a special Air Mail to the North Pole mailbox. Please bring the adults who love you to the Sanibel Historical Village any time before December 15 to write your letter, and Santa will write back to you wishing you holiday cheer!
