PEOPLE tend to fall in to two camps – those who feel Christmas is over too soon and those who are pleased to see the back of it.

But Xmas enthusiasts will be delighted to learn of a totally OTT hotel in Tennessee that celebrates Christmas all year round.



The Inn at Christmas Place, which can be found next to Dollywood theme park, even celebrates Christmas in the middle of July when you can expect temperatures up to 31C.

It offers everything from Santa meet-and-greets to gingerbread making and free milk and cookies.

Guests enter through a huge lobby at the 145-room Bavarian themed hotel, which is fully decorated with Christmas trees, lights and garlands.

Kids can write letters to Santa and post them in a letterbox, to receive a reply via email, and there is a three-storey Glockenspiel that plays carols every hour.

The main man himself also makes appearances regularly, to do things like roast marshmallows over the fire, help at the check-in desk and sing in the lobby.

Mrs Claus also makes an appearance with the elves, serving milk and cookies.

Many of the bed rooms are also similarly decked in Christmas, with sleigh ornaments, fluffy red beds and even seven-foot trees.

The best room is Santa's Suite – inside is a huge fireplace with decorations throughout the room, as well as a gift from the man himself.
