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.

Wrong, Santa Claus is Turkish. If you still don't believe me, look at the wikipedia.

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

"Indigenous" might be the word you want.

Fattest reindeer I've ever seen. How does he even stand up with those weedy little legs?

in far north genetic mutation to lose melanin in skin ensured better survival among aboriginal immigrants to far north -- they could absorb vitamin D easier which kept their bones strong. The farther north they went, the paler they needed to be to metabolically survive the long dark winters.
