Watch: Santa Claus sets off on his journey

Yle was on hand to see Father Christmas begin his worldwide tour, setting off from his cottage in Korvatunturi, Finland for the far reaches of the globe.

Footage captured by the Finnish Broadcasting Company Yle shows the jolly red man himself climbing into his sleigh with a burlap bag full of presents. Two handsome reindeer were on hand to deliver Santa safely to his many destinations.

According to information received by Yle, Santa commenced his journey well in advance in order to ensure that his gifts will be transported on time. Word has it that Santa will arrive at most of the homes he intends to visit on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, to spread the holiday cheer.
