Santa Claus landed at Sofia Airport

Santa Claus arrived at Sofia Airport to meet the children. He did not arrive by sleigh as usual, but by helicopter.

As always the white-bearded old man was welcomed by many children at the airport. He shared he had to come by helicopter since it was so heavy with snow in Lapland that he could not find his deer but he did not want to be late for his meeting with the children.
