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.

Technically, St Nicholas came from Turkey. But Santa... Well... he lives in the imaginations of the beautiful children...

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.

Actually Santa is Greek, because he was born in Greek Anatolia to Greek Parents.

Fun fact; one story about him actually has him punching a heretic in the face during what was supposed to be a peaceful dialogue.
