Santa is a...





 

Santa is a...



Everybody knows Santa’s sledge is pulled by reindeer, lives somewhere cold and even the Finns say he lives in Lapland.

In other words, Santa is a Sami. Just look at this http://www.visitnorway.com/ImageVault/Images/id_8233/conversionFormat_13/scope_0/ImageVaultHandler.aspx and deal with it.

The Sami people are the “Indians” of the North and they belong in the same group as Native Americans and Aboriginals. They live in Lapland, an area that stretches from north Norway over Sweden and Finland to Russia.

I would have liked there to be more characters in the comic, but I don’t have a lot of time to draw today, so this will have to do.

As a Canadian, I was told Santa lives in the North Pole, but I love this idea of Santa living in Lapland!

@JWTB Look up "tonttu" in google images. They were part of the original Finnish religion even and has stayed in the Finnish culture. Everything had it's own tonttu, sauna for an example.

Santa Claus as we know him is made by the Coca-Cola company. He was inspired by the Dutch saint Sinterklaas (St. Nicholas). It was still celebrated by the Dutch settelers in the USA and thats where Coca Cola made him. And thats how Santa was made. Santa's dad is a Dutch saint, born in Turkey and who lives in Madrid and visits NL in the winter
