ABSTRACT
This article discusses Santa Claus-themed tour packages in Lapland, Finland. Tour companies offer packages where families can meet Santa; go on reindeer, husky or snowmobile rides, and visit Santa Village, where elves busily sort mail from children around the world. And it's not just fun for the kiddies; according to Steve Mitchell, director of sales for tour operator Emagine, several prospective grooms have popped the question in front of Santa's sleigh.
