Christmas is a census-designated place and an unincorporated area in Orange County, Florida, United States. It is part of the Orlando–Kissimmee Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 1,146 at the 2010 census. Christmas is home to the world's largest alligator-shaped building, measuring at just over 200 feet (61 m); to Fort Christmas Historical Park, a recreation of the Second Seminole War Fort Christmas; and to Fort Christmas Folk School, a nonprofit school dedicated to teaching folk arts. Every year, Christmas sends a large amount of mail from its post office from people who mail letters from the town so they can have the "Christmas" postmark on their holiday mailings. Christmas is the birthplace of the American sculptor James Hughlette "Tex" Wheeler, who is best known for his bronze sculpture of the famed racehorse Seabiscuit which holds a place of honor at Santa Anita Park racetrack in California and his "...tribute to the American folk humorist, Will Rogers at Claremore, Oklahoma..." (Dickinson, 2006). Mr Wheeler is buried in the Fort Christmas Cemetery. Christmas is home to many Orlando digital TV stations' transmission towers.
