Special winter games
Santa Clauses from all over the world were in Sweden recently for the annual Santa Winter Games. The games started in the city of Gallivare as a local Christmas event in 2003. But word quickly spread. This year's competition included Santas from seven countries.
More than 50 Santas competed in classic Santa events such as sleigh and reindeer racing, porridge eating and chimney climbing. Last year's winner, a British Santa, had to hand over the coveted title to this year's winner, a Santa from Estonia.
