Santa Claus is from Sweden

Research now tells us the truth

There have been a lot of rumors that Santa Claus is from Rovaniemi in Finland. But according to research by scientists at the University of Lund, it implies that he is actually from Sweden. Based on the research, it seems to indicate that the most reasonable location for his home is in Lapland, or more specifically, Jokkmokk.

The researchers have used satellite photos to examine migrations. Based on this, they have pinpointed the most logical place for Santa to live, so he can easily deliver gifts all over the world. And this place is Jokkmokk in Northern Sweden.

This research was first published in 2016.
