Dolly Parton is giving her fans a look at her dressed as Santa Claus, saying “Dolly Claus is comin’ to town.”

With almost 34,000 likes only an hour after posting, fans agree that “Dolly Claus” is a wonderful thing. One comment simply said, “Christmas Angel.” Another fan wrote, “Best Santa Claus ever.”

Her New Netflix Special Is A Gift To Fans

Parton really is delivering holiday gifts to so many fans with her latest album, A Holly Dolly Christmas. Additionally, Parton has her very own Netflix special, “Christmas on the Square.” The special is a true Christmas miracle –oops, we mean a true Christmas musical. Not only does Parton play a gift-giving angel, but she also composed the music and wrote the lyrics. Throughout the special, Parton delivers 14 new songs, something fans are delighted about.

On an Instagram post promoting the special, a fan commented, “Holly Dolly Christmas is the best tv this season.” Another fan wrote, “I really need this after this year. Thank you Dolly for always giving.”

As always, Dolly Parton shared the love with fellow performers. For her album, Parton collaborated with Jimmy Fallon, Willie Nelson, Michael Bublé, as well as Miley Cyrus. Parton commented on her collaborations during an interview with Marie Claire.

“But, yeah, we’ve just had such a wonderful array of stars and such a good time working on it,” Parton said.

Dolly Parton Gives The Feeling Of Christmas To Fans

Parton said that the show is for everyone who feels disappointed about not being able to spend the holidays as they “normally” do.

“I think it’s perfect for this Christmas, for sure. I think a lot of people are not going to be able to get out and do Christmas like they normally would. It’s really about this whole town and all the fun stuff that we always get to do at Christmas when things are normal, but this year is not, and so I think it’s going to give people a chance to actually feel like they’re still getting out in their community, doing the kinds of things that we’re doing in this movie,” she said.

For even more Dolly Parton this holiday season, watch out for her performance alongside Gwen Stefani at the Rockefeller Christmas Tree lighting.
