How many of you Santas are there? one suspicious little boy asks, and receives an answer from one of the participants in the contest: There are a whole bunch of us, but we are the best of the lot. The folks at the Iittala Glass Centre had not thought of it before that they could have their very own Santa as well. When the owners of the businesses came up with the idea one month ago, they immediately decided to select a Santa Claus of the Year, registered the competition, and began to attract contestants.Five showed up.Now the competition is about to begin. Despite the bone-chilling wind, a respectable number of children huddle on the hill of the Glass Centre, together with their parents and local entrepreneurs.Santas appear here and there, all over the place. One of them is carrying around a large burlap bag as if it contained true treasure: I brought some of my own paintings along. What kinds of paintings?The Santa candidate pauses for an instant, but only for appearance's sake. He then eagerly opens the mouth of the bag. But they are nude portraits! Yes, they are. These are meant primarily for male eyes. One by one, the Santas are led to the skill course, where Sirkka Reunanen already awaits them.Three of the five candidates rush first to hug Mrs. Reunanen, and she later confesses that one of them squeezed her in some of the wrong places.Each contestant also sings a reindeer call that the Iittala residents have written beforehand, sits down to test how many children can fit into his lap at the same time (the result is five), tries to throw small gifts into a giant-sized classic Aalto vase from a distance, and moves about in front of the audience in typical Santa fashion. One jumps up and down and bellows.Once the small parade to downtown Iittala is finished, the bearded competitors take a break for lunch. Eating just does not seem to work out with the extra facial hair, and neither does drinking. Finally the candidates ask waiters to bring them drinking straws.Last but not least, the Santas are interviewed. What is Santa's bathing suit like? Well, it includes suspenders, and a belt with jingle bells attached , one contestant confidently answers. Perhaps he has forgotten the honourable purpose of the competition. Each contestant named a charity beforehand that will receive a gift sack worth 1,500 euros if he wins, donated by the business owners of Iittala.Children are also allowed to ask questions. So how do you know , one shy little girl begins, but stops in mid-sentence out of embarrassment. Try it again! So how do you know if someone has been naughty or nice? The eyes , one Santa answers. You can tell from the eyes. If there are any signs of dishonesty, the child has not been good. How many needles are there on a Christmas tree? ten-year-old Laura enquires. Teemu, also ten years old, asks Santa what he wants for Christmas. Well, what? a Santa counters. I'm not saying! You tell me, since you know what all the children want for Christmas! Over the course of three hours, the jury of three adults and two children reaches its verdict. Peter Petro, 25 and a native of Hämeenlinna, is Santa Claus of the Year. His bag of gifts will be donated to a centre in Hämeenlinna that aids poor families. Petro has had a certain purpose about himself all throughout the competition, he has encouraged the children to sing, and sang so well himself that the audience was stunned.He also has plenty of experience. Every Christmas, I pose as Santa Claus in Hämeenkyrö, just like my two brothers and my uncle. My mother sells all of us. The hours between six and eight p.m. on Christmas Eve are sold out for two years in advance, my calendar is not empty until 2005. The audience begins to get ready to depart, and the losing candidates move away to deal with their disappointment. We will definitely win next year!
