Finland (2010)
In the weeks before Christmas, but also in every other month of the year, people from all over the world come to Santa Claus Village at the Arctic Circle near Rovaniemi, Finland, to meet Santa at his residence there. For us it felt a bit strange to see this during our holiday in August!

This pretty girl called Tiina, according her name tag, was selling Christmas cards and stamps inside the post office of Santa Village. All post will be stamped by hand using the special postmark of the Santa Claus Post Office.

5 opmerkingen:

  1. I think that it is funny to see Santa Claus in August. But there, in Korvatunturi, the whole set of Santa's elves, control by Santa Claus, are preparing for Christmas.
    Have a happy weekend.

  2. Ja grappig, die strikken met belletjes, toen wij er waren was het 27 graden! Mooie nieuwe header.

  3. She certainly has an elvish sensibility to her look.

    There's a Santa's village sort of theme park here in Ontario. I've never been in it.


Don't be shy and leave a comment. I'd love to read what you think!
