To get into the Christmas spirit, here are some views of Santa’s toy and candy factory. In Santa Claus mythology, the workshop or factory is a sprawling commune located at the North Pole or in Lapland. In addition to housing the production facility where toys are either manufactured or distributed by the elves, the complex also houses the residence of Santa Claus, his wife, the worker elves, and the reindeer who are all part of Santa’s production and supply chain.
