Pictured is the North Pole, where Santa is said to live. It’s not as dreamy as it may appear, with a cold climate and a harsh environment.

Political cartoonist Thomas Nast was the first to establish Santa’s home as the North Pole. Several of his drawings from the 1800s feature Santa living in the North Pole. The North Pole was thought of as a “mystical and magical” place, leading to Santa’s supposed residency there.
