Joulupukin Pääposti

The previously mentioned Christmas theme park may have reminded some of our readers that the Finns believe Santa Claus lives in Finland. One might then think that he lives in this Christmas land just outside Rovaniemi but that turns out to be completely wrong. Instead, it seems to be a southern outpost as he is supposed to have his home by a fell quite a bit further north. What this Christmas park does have, however, is Santa Claus' Main Post Office - where letters for Santa Claus are collected and Christmas stamps are sold all year round.

Additionally one has the choice of two mailboxes: one for earliest possible delivery and one for delivery around Christmas...
