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.

I used to read YouTube comments a lot and one day a comment said: do not stop while reading this or bad things will happen to you. One day a girl died .......(I think it went like that) and if you don't repost this comment five/ten times(I saw a few of these in my life) on other sites, one night when you least expect it, she will rise from her grave and kill you with her dagger. I didn't do it and it freaked me out.

Me and my sisters were getting groceries and when no one was looking the trunk hit my little sister in the back of her head. The trunk wouldn't stay up and my sister tried to climb in the trunk to reach for something. Our car was a used Yukon and the trunk was weak. Blood was EVERYWHERE! We took her to the ER and she was ok.
