    This village in Finland has to be the most Christmassy place in the entire world. First of all, it's the official hometown of Santa Claus. You can actually visit him every day of the year, but in December the town turns into a Christmas wonderland. Take dogsled rides, hang out with reindeer, go ice-skating, and drink hot chocolate by the fire all day long. If you're lucky and the weather's right, you might even be able to see the northern lights.
