The World Santa Claus Congress in Bakken began 1958 when a danish mountebank, Professor Tribini, had a crazy idea. To gather Santa in the summer to decide when it will be Christmas in Denmark.

All over the World they laughed when they heard the story but Santa's liked the idea and wanted to join. And today more than 150 Santa's will participate.
