Tis the Season


TIS THE SEASON 
is the topic of the week at Our Beautiful World chosen by Ros. 
I participate with this post also to Amy's Five on Friday and Maggie's Mosaic Monday.
My post is all about Christmas.




1 A FEW WORDS ABOUT JOULUPUKKI - SANTA CLAUS


Santa Claus - Joulupukki is really a Finnish Christmas figure! 
The name literally means Christmas goat - billy-goat. Joulupukki and his wife live and work 
in Korvatunturi, a mountain in Lapland. His assistants are called joulutonttu
they are not elves but are essentially human, often dwarflike in character. 
They spy children from their hiding places in order to find out whether the kids behave well or bad. The well behaving kids can be sure to get many Christmas presents on the Christmas Eve. 

Did you know that Joulupukki sends a letter to your kids too? 
Here's the link to Santa Claus Post Office 

Joulupukki - Santa Claus receives every year about half a million letters from children all over the world. Since 1985 there has been appr 17 million letters from 200 countries
 - that is a lot! Let your children write to Santa - he answers for sure - and how fun this is!

I found this site to be very interesting. Read how Christmas is being celebrated all over the world.

  22. Merry Christmas dear Riitta ...to you and your family. I really enjoyed reading about your Holiday traditions.... your human version of "Santa's" helpers makes more sense than our elves really (but of course making sense doesn't really matter at this season). Thank you for all the beautiful pictures and interesting information! Enjoy your Holiday time .
