2016-12-23 – This isn't a great photo, but has a great story behind it. Rovaniemi, Finland is the official hometown of Santa and they were live streaming on Facebook this morning as Santa was preparing to head out for Christmas. They had a large crowd gathered as he spoke to everyone. After a few Christmas songs he climbed into a sleigh with a single reindeer and rode into the forest. As I watched this happen I commented in Finnish, saying Merry Christmas. About 30 seconds later my name and comment popped up on the screen as part of the live feed. It was all I could do to grab my phone and take a quick photo. I thought it was really cool to participate in the event 9 times zones away.
