One of Norway’s biggest national newspapers has apologised after publishing funeral details for Father Christmas.

 

The death announcement in Aftenposten featured a picture of a cross and gave Santa’s age as 227.

 

It read: “Our dear Father Christmas, born 12 December 1788 … died on 3 December in Nordkapp,” which is the country’s northernmost point.

 

It said the funeral would be held at the North Pole Chapel on 28 December. No cause of death – an overdose of mince pies or otherwise – was given. The author of the notice was said to be “the whole world”.



I wonder how the newspaper managed to let this one slip through? Seems Santa will arrive with pressies on 25 December after all.

Perhaps, as Mauricio recently suggested, Krampus came and got him?
