It is a common knowledge that Santa Claus is an honorary citizen of Earth, a goodwill ambassador and the most beloved and well-liked person on the whole planet. But little do people know that Santa wasn’t always a fluffy, white-bearded old man. He was born in the distant Lapland under the Polar lights exactly as many winters ago as we know of today. And since then, he’s been loyal to his promise to fulfill the dearest wishes of little kids in every corner of the world.
Due to the fact that Santa’s and his Elves’ location is a secret and only his deer are aware of it, in 1958 he decided to relocate his office in Rovaniemi, the capital city of Lapland. This place also became a majestic destination for the children’s letters, their gifts and for children themselves, who wanted to meet Santa in person. From this time on, Rovaniemi got the official status of “Santa’s Village!” You also want to explore his suburbs?
