Oula is 193 years old with a grey beard and has always a running nose. He is hard-working but also enthusiastic when it comes to playing and fooling around. Oula enjoys sledding and jumping into snow piles. He is learning to play the guitar and and absolutely loves the black coffee that Mrs. Claus makes.
Elves are Santa’s loyal helpers and their job is to find out what children want for Christmas and to prepare the gifts. The elves live in Korvatunturi, together with Santa and Mrs. Claus but you can spot them everywhere in Finland, especially during Christmas time.
All elves have special responsibilities. Some of them make gifts, some take care of Santa’s mail, the kitchen elves help with cooking, the candy elves prepare Christmas sweets, some elves take care of the reindeer, while the fisherman elves bring salmon to Santa’s dinner table and the berry elves pick berries. The porridge elves make the traditional Christmas porridge, the car elves work as drivers, the computer elves operate the modern telecommunications systems, the telephone elves answer the phone, the doll elves make dolls, the knitter elves knit beautiful socks and mittens and so on. The list is endless.
