Lapland: Home of Santa?

Lapland's Santa Connection

You've probably been told that Santa Claus lives in the North Pole, right? Well, rumor has it that Santa actually lives in Finland. That's right. He apparently lives on a fell (a fell is a mountain with no trees) called Korvatunturi (Ear Mountain) in Savukoski. Lapland has plenty of reindeer and lots of food to feed them.

Santa in Korvatunturi

Korvatunturi is 1437 feet (438 meters) high. There are even two ears at the top. It is said that this way, Santa can hear all the children around the world. Nobody has seen where Santa, Mrs. Claus, the elves and reindeer live. The journey is so hard and long that even birds trying to fly there have to stop and rest many times. We do know that Santa set up his own Santa Claus Office at the Arctic Circle in Rovaniemi, Lapland in 1985. He goes there every day so children (and adults) can tell Santa what they want for Christmas. Santa gets about 600,000 letters a year from over 150 countries. There's also a greeting center and the Santa Claus Plaza.

Neither Clinton nor Obama can rid of our rights to guns. It's against the second amendment, and a terrible thing to do overall for reasons that probably don't need explaining. However, we do need to monitor who we do and don't give weapons to. As you said, it's not the gun that harms others. It's the people.

I have too low an expectation of society for them to recognize something as right or wrong, and base their disapproval on the issue and not the people backing it.
