LOLOL, It would be great if you were kidding, great for you that is. Hello, a imaginary thing can not come from anywhere, it does not come into being. If it came from anywhere it would not be a myth. Since there is a Lapland, which my Grandfather came from, I can say the place my grandfather came from exists. But the lapland that your Santa lives in does not exist.
"Julenisse, the Christmas gnome.
Here in Norway, Santa Claus is called Julenisse, which could be translated as "Christmas gnome", or "Christmas elf". It is thought that this term comes from Saint-Nicholas: Nils is the Scandinavian equivalent of Nicolas. However, this tradition has existed long before the birth of Jesus Christ. A nisse is a small bearded man wearing a red pointed cap (it's the gnome's archetype we are all aware of), usually old and with the size of a child.
The most famous is the Fjøsnisse, the nisse that takes care of the farm in which he lives. He usually lives in the barn, the stables or the pantry. A well-kept farm is usually an indication of the presence of one of these domestic spirits. In return for his loyal service, the nisse requires quite a few things: respect and confidence of the farmer for whom he works and a bowl of julegrøt (Christmas porridge) for Christmas Eve. If the farmer does not meet these conditions, then it will have to expect reprisals, such as an upside-down farm, the death of the best animals, and so on."
