The Christmas 2011 official opening ceremony was held today in Helsinki. The mayor of Helsinki light the Aleksanterinkatu Christmas lights and there was a parade from the Senate square walking up the Aleksanterinkatu and back to the square down the Esplanade.
Here comes Santa in a car. You can hardly see him because of all the parcels. I would have loved to see him arriving in a sleigh pulled by reindeer. But to get to see that you have to go to Lapland. Can you believe today was the very first time we were there for the opening.
