The first Santa sighting

I have had my first shadowy Santa sighting. He was spotted in Helsinki in a doorway in the distance.


I later saw some elves having a discussion in an upstairs room.


Christmas is coming.

Tomorrow we will be in Rovaniemi where Santa lives. I hope he won’t be too busy to see us…I have some requests from friends.

Have a look at my other blog, Beautiful Helsinki for more on this gorgeous part of the world. There is a link on the right.
