In Lapland, near Rovaniemi, is located the present village of Santa Claus, which has long been one of the most visited tourist destinations in Finland.

It is believed that the Santa Claus village in Lapland appeared, thanks to Eleanor Roosevelt, the widow of United States President Franklin Roosevelt. In the distant 1950, Eleanor wanted to visit the homeland of Santa, which when she heard, near Rovaniemi.

Specially for the visit of high-ranking guests, there was a hut, surviving, by the way, until today. And later in the village began to arrive the people who wanted too a visit to Santa Claus. And soon, thanks to growing popularity, the usual village turned into a magical little town that became a place of pilgrimage for those who still believe in a light tale about Santa Claus. In addition, there is a large complex with a variety of winter activities. By the way, this complex is open throughout the year.

But here you will hear a very different version of the origin of the fairy village. Local residents with pleasure will tell you that about 100 years ago, a man accidentally found out about where it lives a kind grandfather Santa. This man began to tell others about the cave in which live Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus, about Christmas reindeer-drawn sleighs, and about young men – it is the elves who are working in the cave workshop.

Because Santa Claus didn't want the location of his real home was declassified, he decided to reach out to people, and settled near Rovaniemi, which is now coming and its loyal fans to meet their favorite character and share the most intimate wishes of new year or Christmas gift.

Throughout the year, the little gnomes that work grandpa Santa, conduct the counting of good and bad deeds of every child in the world. And when it comes time to give gifts, Santa Claus personally looks through each entry to evaluate the child's behavior and determine what kind of him to make a gift.

Obedient and well-behaved children, Santa is nice with beautiful gifts, but if the child misbehaved, was capricious, or even committed acts ugly then this baby will get a gift only dry firewood. But so bad the children are very little, therefore, usually one of the kids is not Christmas without this coveted gift.
