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.

@Kylis155 Both Finns and Sami are Finno-Ugric people, you are related, distantly, but related.

Anyone noticed how Sami (or Saame, like we say it) is really close to Suomi? (Soumi=Finland in finnish)

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