Mt. Santa Claus

Recently a Swedish consulting firm suggested that Kyrgyzstan, not the North Pole, would be the optimal starting point for Santa Claus. Now Kyrgyz officials are naming a peak after Santa.

A team of climbers will scale the soon-to-be "Mount Santa Claus" on Christmas Eve. Krygyz officials are hoping that the move will spur a wave of holiday-related tourism to the former Soviet republic located in central Asia.
