Santa Claus Village
5) Meeting the Real SantaThe 'Real' Santa lives in the Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi on the Arctic Circle. There are rein deer rides, great food, post office where one could send letters to their future and others. We met the man himself. He was exactly how we all imagine him to be. Happy, merry, and fun! He promised us that he knew where we all lived and he visited us every christmas. We took some quick pictures with him! Meeting santa was a treat to the little girl in me :)
The Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) is a celestial spectacle that you must see as no amount of pictures, words or stories can do justice to it. I accomplished this goal in November 2015 across the Arctic Circle in Finland and Norway where I saw the Northern Lights dance and perform for 3 nights in a row.
