I just ordered original Santa Letter from Lapland (Arctic Circle)


At one stage it was thought that Santa Claus/Father Christmas lives in the North Pole. In 1925 it was discovered that there are no reindeer in the North Pole but there are lots of them in Lapland, in the northernmost part of Finland.

So today we know that Santa Claus lives in Lapland's Korvatunturi which in Finnish means ”Ear Fell”. This fell is situated on Finland's eastern frontier in Savukoski's municipality. There are ten times more reindeer than people in Savukoski.
