I Believe in You Santa

The days are very short, only six hours. In Helsinki the sun rises approximately at 9.15 am and sets at 3.15 pm. Not much to be happy about. Right after noon the scenery gets a golden touch from the setting sun... Fortunately we got some snow and it made the scenery to WinterWonderland for a day or so. It won’t last, it is too warm, the climate, the climate - no true winters anymore! But it was so beautiful for a while, and it made me to think of Santa and all the kids around the world who believe in him. It feels good to believe in something or somebody who is capable of fulfilling our dreams.

An Advent Story - I believe in you Santa
Little Willy was again restless when he went to bed. He was nervous because he did not know 
if he had been nice enough. It also annoyed him that the kids in the kindergarden had great 
Advent calendars. Sometimes a mini toy popped out, sometimes chocolate. 
It was unfair that his calendar was so boring, got for free from the church!

Why no one invented a World Calendar, when anything else was invented, thought Willy. 
Opening the hatch, one could travel in time to a particular moment in history. 
Willy would like to see definitely the dinosaurs alive. And dragons, because he believed in them too. 
If he had such a fancy World Calendar, Willy would become so popular and every kid 
would want to be his friend.

"Dear Santa, I believe in you and that you have such calendars. 
Could I have one in express mail, please? 
No need for Rudolph either, because the postal services are not in strike anymore.”

Here in the south we don’t have as beautiful frost on trees as in Lapland where 
Santa Claus lives. Photo: Santa Claus Village, Rovaniemi Lapland
On the site a lot of info & videos

I have two beautiful videos for you:
an animated story telling about friendship & a ballet.

Wishing you a blessed Advent time!

  1. Hi Riitta,
    oh yes, I believe in Santa too :O)
    Thank you for this wonderful Post!
    Wishing you a lovely day,
    Love and hugs, Claudia xo

    1. Santa is the best :) Have a lovely day Claudia ❤️

  2. This is really a winter wonderland, so beautiful and how in the first picture the red berries are still "flashing". Fantastically beautiful and I thank you already that you let us be part of this magic.

    Phew, that's really early dark, what we complain about the time change. Too bad that you don't have a real winter anymore.

    So I would also like to have such an Advent calendar, at least the possibility to travel in time. I think about so many times when I see old buildings. Time travel will probably always be a dream of mankind.

    ...and then still at the end with you today two so wonderful videos. Also for it I would like to thank you. Both go to me so deep to the heart, it is allowed to have tears roll, isn’t it. You made me today a very special joy, thank you for it.

    Have a beautiful day and greeting over to you

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Nova ❤️💛❤️💛
      Winter Wonderland still exists here, but in the evening the rain will come. Finland is a long country and the differences in temperatures are huge. The other day Utsjoki, Lapland had -31 C, and southern Hanko +7 C. Here in the south it is often very wet and that is quite different from my childhood, spent in Imatra, Carelia.

      But the Cristmas will come to everybody on earth :) I'm so glad you liked the videos. Have a lovely day.

  3. Dear Riitta
    thank you very much for the beautiful videos that can really move you to tears. The world is so beautiful without hate, greed, envy, fanaticism and racism. But unfortunately it is as it is and we can only each of us contribute a little bit to prevent at least in our narrow environment all the ugliness.
    Oh yes, the days are short, but soon.....soon it will go up again! :-)
    I wish you a fine Wednesday from the bottom of my heart,
    kind regards

  4. ...fresh snow is magical.

  5. So very beautiful! I (almost) believe in Santa when I see these pics ;-) Sorry you are not getting so much daylight though.

  6. Your shots are simply lovely!
    Have a blessed Advent you too.

  7. Beautiful photos and post! We don't get much snow here and I am wishing for a white Christmas:)

  8. The snow is so pretty to see, as I don't get many chances here in New Zealand. Your photos are so bright and seasonal and all are fabulous to see!

    Thanks for taking the time to link up at 'My Corner of the World' this week!

  9. Me ha parecido precioso. Besos.

  10. this is a wonderful world with you and your story is so cute and the videos. I also like to drink Glögg. The link is interesting. Thanks for this nice posting
    Greetings Elke

  11. Eine herrliche Winter-Wonder-World ist in deinen Fotos zu bewundern.
    Ich liebe den winter, wenn er sich so zeigt, wie du es fotografiert hast.
    Vielen Dank fürs verlinken zum "DND".
    So viel Dunkelheit bei euch finde ich etwas bedrückend.
    Mir reicht es jetzt schon bei uns, wenn man um 16.30 draußen nichts mehr sieht.
    Aber ab Januar geht es ja wieder aufwärts !
    Die Videos lassen sich im Moment leider nicht bei mir öffnen.
    Ich schaue später nochmal vorbei.
    ♥lichst Jutta

  12. That's the difference. For you, it is not as much snow as usual and for us, in Germany, it is a wonderland, even for one day.
    Love your pics.

    Hhave a nice day

  13. Ein Winterwunderland im Goldschimmer. Dazu eine kleine Geschichte, einen Weihnachtsmann und Musik. Danke für dies Weihnachtsglück,
    herzlichst Klärchen

  14. Da muss man schon pressieren wenn man Sonne tanken will bei euch im Norden. Wunderschöne Winterbilder und die Geschichte dazu machen den Beitrag Märchenhaft.

  15. wunderbare bilder von schneetagen, es sieht schon ein bisschen märchenhaft aus! freunde von uns waren gerade in rovaniemi und haben auch so schöne schneebilder mitgebracht (und auch solche von den vielen touristen dort ;)! aber wie du schreibst ist ja der unterschied bei den temperaturen zwischen südfinnlang und lappland enorm.
    liebe grüße
