While homes and stores around the world are turning into winter wonderlands, some companies make the holiday their business. Sprinkled across the country are a handful of Christmas and Santa-themed parks that cater to guests looking to kick back with Kris Kringle. 

While many of these places have closed over the years or changed into more traditional theme parks, there are still four that remain and are worth a visit for some holiday fun.

From roller coasters to Christmas villages to never-melting ice poles, this is the closest thing to visiting the North Pole itself.
