In Finland, it is believed that Santa lives just north on the Mountain of Korvatunturi in the little town of Savukoski above the Arctic Circle. Lots of reindeer live in Lapland, and that’s why Santa uses reindeer to get around, because they’re so plentiful! Finnish children are sure that Finland is the very first stop on Santa’s list and anxiously wait until morning to get their gifts. Finnish Christmas traditions have spread to 140 countries since the mid 1300s.
