Rovaniemi, hometown of Santa Claus and South Korea's postal industrialization

Kah Jae-Mo, Korean Poet

The following is the end paragraph written by Korean Poet, Kah Jae-Mo, in his poem of the First snowfall in this winter.

"Aurora in the night sky, sledding arctic dogs in a rushing instinct

Looking up at the Christmas tree with colorful lanterns

On snowy bed in a snowy hotel

Christmas carol covering a reindeer furred spear

Eskimo dreams in Santa's home, Finland

I miss Rovaniemi's snowy field, "

Every year at this time of the trip to visit Santa, featured articles (D Daily, professional travel reporter Jo Sung-ha) came into sight. He praised Rovaniemi and snowy Rovaniemi in the hometown of Santa Claus in Finland.

Aurora in the night sky, snow dogs sleigh driving in the Arctic with a primitive driving instinct, Snowy hotel in the snow with Christmas carols, Snow covered in the whole roof of the glass, Eating in the glass Igloo Village, sleeping into the reindeer blanket on an ice bed with Eskimo-like dreams.

Mrs. Eleanor, wife of H.E. President Franklin Roosevelt(32nd President of the U.S.A.) has led the UNRRA(currently UNICEF), the United Nations, after the death of President Franklin Roosevelt, who was inaugurated three times.

After the end of World War II, Mrs. Eleanor began to support the urban reconstruction project by collecting funds for building facilities for children in Rovaniemi city, which was devastated by German troops.

When Eleanor had the plan to visit Finland in 1590, the municipal government bore the Santa hut on the outskirts of Rovaniemi, passing through the Arctic Line.

Now Santa Claus is living and communicating with all the children around the world freely with the Santa Post Office, where Santa Claus lives and sends 700,000 copies of Santa letters from around the world for 365 days a year and replies daily to send postcards to the Santa Post Office.

The Arctic Circle hut has been renamed the Roosevelt Cottage, the best Santa theme park on earth with a coexisting reindeer park.

According to Hwacheon, Santa and Elf of Finland will visit for the Hwacheon Santa Post Office at the main event scheduled for 22nd December 2018.

It is to commemorate the opening of the Santa Post Office headquarters in Hwacheon-eup, which has been operating since the end of July 2018.

It is said that it was arranged as a special event to raise interest and enthusiasm for the festival with the opening of the fishing festival starting from 5th December 2018.

Three years ago, Hwacheon-gun sent a letter from the whole country through Santa Post Office to the village of Santa Rovaniemi City in Finland.

The number of letters sent to Santa this year was 7,455, which was sent to Finland last month.

In 2016, 642 of the events were launched, followed by 6,470 last year, followed by 1,000 more this year.

In particular, Santa and the Elf are participating in the street lighting ceremony held at the Hwacheon-eup, Jeongno-eup from 6 pm on the 22nd to promote the Festival.

I appreciate Hwacheon's creative ideas.

However, from the point of view of the controversy, I am wondering about the astronomical budget after the end of the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games, which has caught the attention of the global people, and how much is the management and utilization of the Olympic facilities accomplished by the sweat and labor of many people.

The Santa Claus post office headquartered in Hwacheon is operated as it is, but we will thoroughly benchmark the Rovaniemi in Finland to suggest to the government that we will strategically start the global Santa Claus industrialization using the existing postal and logistics as well as an information and communication networks advanced in Korea,

At this moment, I would like to propose more detailed strategies as follows; 1) Establishment and operation of a Korean post office in each city, 2) Global fashion stages for the Korean style Santa Claus costume, 3) production and sales of Santa Claus-related souvenirs such as various Pyeongchang Olympic souvenirs, 4) Foster global marking of souvenirs and local wellbeing specialties, 5) Conduct international events and sports development related to seasonal Santa Claus 6) enforce Santa Claus literature and art prize worldwide, 7) Implement Miss Santa Claus and exclusive model selection contest early we have to start.

Even if it is not an Arctic country that is always in winter, I would like to transform the PyeongChang Olympics into a Santa Start-up Business Complex like Finland, which embraces the world's children.
