Jolly Santas and happy elves from all over the globe are having their annual meeting in Copenhagen for a three-day schedule that mixes official Santa business and pleasure.

With white beards everywhere, the tourists visiting the Little Mermaid were happy – if somewhat confused – to meet Santa and join in on the Christmas joy. Even though it's still July, people promised the Santa crew that they would behave well for the rest of the year so that the Santas could return and fill their stockings.
Make no mistake, the Santa Claus Congress is a big deal and Santas come from near and far.
“There are Santas from everywhere – Sweden, Germany, France... even Japan," 'Santa Jordan' told us.
“I've been coming for eight years, I won't miss a congress”, added 'Santa Douglas', who came all the way from Washington DC.
