Christmas in a town where Santa needs a security badge can be a challenge, but we all know Santa is good at keeping secrets. And he can find you anywhere, even in a secret city or a construction camp where your address is a post office box shared by lots of other people! Presents fit quite nicely under a sagebrush “tree” decorated with popcorn and tinsel. Hear tales of those who were home at Hanford for the holidays during World War II and picture yourself dancing to the tunes of a big band, feasting in a mess hall, or recreating a bit of home in the cold and dusty desert.
