Welcome to Edinburg, ND!

 

Northeast North Dakota is a well-kept secret, especially the little town of Edinburg. It sits on the edge of the fertile farmland of the Red River Valley and the prairies of the west. Edinburg has a population of about 190 people with the drive, dreams and heart of cities 10 times its size. Edinburg could be a "throw-back" to the 50's with its pristine cleanliness, manicured yards and well-kept homes, but it is most definitely planted in the 21st century with citizens who strive to keep Edinburg very much alive!

Edinburg is a great place to live!

HOW OLD IS SANTA CLAUS?

Ever since the beginning of time, children all around the world have been asking the same question. How old is Santa. In this year of 2019, Santa is the age of 1,749 years

How Old Does Santa Say He is? Santa is a tricky old fellow who likes to keep his age under wraps. If you ask him his age, he will say that he is older than his hair, but younger than his toenails. Other times he will say he is older than Mrs, Claus, but younger than the stars. Santa is not only jolly, he is also very wise and knows how to keep a secret - his age.

How Old Is Santa Claus Really? Can you keep a secret? According to Santa's Reindeer Drivers License, he was born in a small Greet village in Turkey in 270 AD. We don't exactly know the month he was born in because the month and date on his license have worn out over the centuries. Some think he was born in March. The only thing we know for sure is that he is almost two thousand years old.

Why Doesn't Santa Reveal His Real Age? The reason Santa does not reveal his age is because he honestly can't remember. He stopped counting a long time ago. Sometimes late at night he sits by the fire in his favorite chair and tries to count all the Christmas' he can remember. He seems to always fall asleep before he gets the 475.

Why Does Santa Always Look The Same Age? Santa looks pretty young. You could almost say he hasn't aged a bit since he was in his early 70's, It is said Mrs. Claus discovered a magical ingredient around 343 AD. She started putting this in his cookies and milk. Since then neither of them has aged. Others think he never ages because of the high altitudes he flies for over 24 hours every year. There are even scientists who believe his jiggling belly keeps him young. The fat, brought on by Mrs Claus' secret recipe, gives him strength and helps keep him from getting wrinkles!

Why Does Santa Think He Looks So Young? Santa believes that his appearance could have something to do with one of his oldest friends. You see,Santa, also known as Father Christmas, is best friends with Father Time. He thinks Father Time may have cast a spell on him that keeps him looking 73.

Santa says he is young and old at the same time. He chalks that up to 3 things:

1. He's always working hard and constantly thinking while he oversees the elves as they build toys for him to deliver on Christmas Eve.

2. He stays young at heart and that keeps him from aging.

3. He is always jolly and never loses the Christmas spirit. You know how excited you get at Christmas time? Just think how excited Santa gets every day of the year while he's thinking about you, making your toys and getting ready to deliver them. They say Christmas is all about giving and sharing and Santa's generosity keeps him bursting at the seams with Christmas spirit, which in turn keeps him from looking any older!
