O. k., we all know, that Santa is an invention of the Coca Cola Company... But I know a nice little story about Santa's hometown Korvatunuri deep in Finland. So let's start a challenge about the capital of Finland: Helsinki. Let us see your impressions of this nice town (I don't have a sample pic, but I think you have a lot of pictures....).
