As the controversy over who owns the North Pole heats up and countries vie to lay claim to land and sub-sea resources, there is another important legal question that emerges. Who lays claim to Santa Claus' ancestral home?
Everyone knows — including the Canada Post office now fielding letters from all over the world from children — that Santa Claus lives at the North Pole. Canada Post has even given him his own exclusive postal code H0H 0H0.
For those who love Christmas, the issue of who lays claim to Santa’s home is far from a laughing matter. Young and old know the North Pole has traditionally been the hang-out of this international icon with a habit of sliding down chimneys, the famous Santa Workshop, and the residence of Santa’s reindeer that drive his sleigh through the night.
