Waving to the public and wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, dozens of Santa’s brought some Christmas cheer to the World Santa Claus Congress.
Santa’s from around the world attended the three-day event in the Danish capital as it hosts a range of activities including parades, a Santa Obstacle Course and shows at the Bakken amusement park.
It also allows this years 125 Santa’s from 15 countries, to discuss professional issues.
“I think this year we need to talk about Santa having a few less cookies,” Santa Douglas, who arrived from Washington, told Reuters. “The chimneys are a little bit smaller now and 15-20 cookies is a few too many. Maybe 12.”
Santa Paradis Yamamoto from Tokyo said the congress would also look at “which presents to give” this Christmas.
The World Santa Claus Congress dates back to 1857 when its founder, Bakken entertainer Professor Tribini decided to bring the Santa’s together for some summer festive fun.
On Monday the Santa’s visited Copenhagen’s Little Mermaid statue and parades through the city accompanied by elves and even one person dressed as a Christmas tree. Festive songs were sung and some of the Santa’s even posed for pictures with the public.
“Santa’s come from all over the world to enjoy beautiful Copenhagen and to share and exchange information and ideas about how to make the world a better place to live for everyone,” Santa Stan Miller from Alabama said.
“That is what being Santa Claus is all about.”
