A Greenlandic Christmas Tradition

* A Glimpse into a Greenlandic Christmas Tradition *

Did you know the “Real Santa Clause” lives in Greenland? Did you also know that Santa comes riding into town on a Dog Sledge? ☺︎

Here we see Santa’s arrival to town. In his hand he carries a staff made from the tusk of a narwhal with a polar bear carved into the tip of it. 




Santa’s helper is seen here wearing polar bear pants and seal skin boots. He is in charge of the dogs. He delivered Santa to the Sleigh and the stood watch over the dogs until it was time for him to leave.



Most of the town is gathered to watch for Santa’s arrival and see the Lighting of the Christmas Tree. After a few Christmas songs are sung, the countdown is said and then the tree is lit. Santa and his elves then hand out small bags of goodies to the children.

Standing on the Word of God! (Church Renovation)

Before the platform was carpeted we all wrote our favorite Bible verses on the wood. Every time some one preaches from that platform they will be standing on the Word of God!

Just a Glimpse - Church Renovation

Here is a peak into the remodeling process! Everyone pitched in and worked hard. Words can't describe how much we appreciate Bro. Terry and Wendy Davis, Caleb and Jared coming to work in the church! We can't wait to see God fill up all this extra space!

This was the door from the church entryway. It was closed in and a new opening added to the end of the entry.
