Santa Claus is setting off on his annual journey from northern Finland to deliver presents around the world.
Santa Claus Village is in the city of Rovaniemi.
He came out of his cabin with a team of elves on Saturday. He wished the children there a merry Christmas and told them it’s time to share the joy of the holiday with children of the world.
Santa then left for his mission on a reindeer sled.
The village post office is flooded with about half a million letters from kids everywhere asking for presents.
He’ll be rewarding those who have been good throughout the year.
