Santa’s workshop is the workshop where Santa Claus is said to make the toys and presents given out at Christmas. In Santa Claus mythology, the “workshop” is a sprawling commune located at the North Pole[1] or in Lapland.[2] In addition to housing the factory where toys are either manufactured or distributed by the elves, the complex also houses the residence of Santa Claus, his wifecompanions and all of the reindeer.[3]      

In 1879, Thomas Nast revealed to the world in a series of drawings that Santa’s workshop is at the North Pole (specifically the North Magnetic Pole, due to the aurora borealis being centered around it and the fact that the workshop was on land, properties that at the time described the magnetic pole [which was under the Canadian Arctic Archipelago at the time; the magnetic pole has since drifted off to sea] but not the geographic one).[4] The Canada Post postal code for the workshop is H0H 0H0; the code was issued in 1994.[5] The United States Postal Service recommends mail to Santa’s workshop be sent to North Pole, Alaska, ZIP code 99705.

Each Nordic country also claims Santa’s workshop to be located on their territories. Norway claims he lives in Drøbak. In Denmark, he is said to live in Greenland (near Uummannaq). In Sweden, the town ofMora has a theme park named “Tomteland”. The national postal terminal in Tomteboda in Stockholm receives children’s letters for Santa. In FinlandKorvatunturi has long been known as Santa’s home, and two theme parks, Santa Claus Village and Santa Park are located at the Arctic Circle in the municipality of Rovaniemi.
