One legend associated with Santa says that he lives in the far north, in a land of perpetual snow.
The American version of Santa Claus says that he lives at his house in the North Pole, while Father Christmas is often said to reside in the mountains of Korvatunturi in Lapland Province, Finland.
Santa Claus lives with his wife Mrs. Claus, a countless number of magical elves, and eight or nine flying reindeer.
Another legend of Santa says that he makes a list of children throughout the world, categorizing them according to their behavior (“naughty” or “nice”) and that he delivers presents, including toys, candy, and other gifts to all of the good boys and girls in the world, and sometimes coal to the naughty children, on the single night of Christmas Eve.
He accomplishes this feat with the aid of the elves who make the toys in the workshop and the reindeer who pull his sleigh.
