About the campaign

Christmas is the most special time of the year. It’s all about people finding each other and coming together. This isn’t always as easy it sounds. This year, we want to ease the burden of all the Christmas hustle and bustle by helping you reach out to those closest to you. Finland, the world’s happiest country three times in a row, and its most famous resident, Santa Claus, have started the Say it with Santa initiative so that you can let Santa be your messenger this Christmas.

The idea is quite simple. Write down what you would like to say and to whom. Santa will read it for you on a video. The videos will be published on Visit Finland’s YouTube channel on the second week of December.

Christmas is a busy time of year for Santa Claus and if this time he is not able to read your message out loud, don’t worry! You will have a chance to meet him live on Visit Finland’s social media channels on 11 December. You can also apply for a private one-to-one session with Santa Claus.
