It's early in the morning at Santa Claus Village in Finnish Lapland. The sun hasn't risen yet, but Santa Claus is already busy making final preparations for his annual trip to bring toys to the world's children.

Father Christmas still has letters to read and gifts to pack, but he says everything will be ready on time.

Santa's elves who work at the post office says their boss receives around half a million letters every Christmas, from almost 200 different countries.

As Christmas approaches, the post office can receive up to 32,000 letters with holiday wishes every day. The most popular wishes are for toys from the winter-themed Disney film " Frozen", Lego blocks and 'Star Wars' action figures.

Once the presents are packed, Santa will head to a nearby snow-covered forest, where his reindeer Rudolph is waiting, ready for action.
