The polar circle. Cold and freezing. At first, the landscape looks unwelcoming, everything is blanketed with endless snow and one could freeze down to the bone. Despite all that, a number of hearts melted here over the first December weekend. Hearts rejoicing in meeting all of those taking the most dutiful care of our Christmas happiness every year – Santa, his elves, and the majestic kings of Lappish fauna – the flying reindeers.
