FAIRFIELD — Twas two weeks before Christmas and all through his house, Santa hosted some visitors, along with his spouse.

Thanks to the Junior Women’s Club of Fairfield, this weekend the Burr Homestead once again became the site for A Visit to Santa’s House. Performances, arts and crafts, a train layout, and special meetings with Mr. and Mrs. Claus gave hundreds of families a chance to get in the holiday spirit.

“This is our 32nd year,” said Tanya Annuncio, who chaired the event, “and we usually have 1,500 to 1,700 people.”

“It’s all about the kids seeing Santa and Mrs. Claus,” she said.
