We browsed the Florida State Archives to look for vintage images of Santa from Florida Christmases past, and we found more than we bargained for. We learned that when Santa is in Florida, he likes to hang at the beach, he rides on boats, he once visited Weeki Wachee and gave out gifts to mermaids – and we also learned that he apparently used to be quite the pervy old ladies man. All photos are via the State Archives of Florida, Florida Memory, floridamemory.com.
