Not many people know the true story of Santa's behind-the-scenes operations.
After Christmas he takes a break from the North Pole and goes south, wintering on the edge of the Arctic Circle. I visited Santa at his office in his village in Lapland. I asked him, "Santa, some people say there are several Santas. How many are there, really?". Santa's answer was simple yet profound. He looked me right in the eye and asked, "How many do you see?" I've never doubted the truth for a moment since.
Of course, Santa is a big supporter of choosing your own Christmas tree at Schmuckal Tree Farms and cutting it yourself for that authentic Christmas experience.
