It's so easy to get caught up with all the "presents" this time of year. For Pat Koch, though, it's the time she thinks the most about the past.
As "Santa's Daughter," Mrs. Koch continues the tradition of seeing to it that Santa's Elves help St. Nick respond to every Letter to Santa that is sent through our town's famous post office.
It's also a time when a lot of reporters come to town to learn about this festive village of 2,400 people.
Here's the link to a wonderful segment from the "My Hometown" program about Santa Claus, Indiana, produced recently by Evansville's WTVW-TV.
