Apparently Canada claims sovereignty to the North Pole. Unfortunately, however, this is frequently contested (apparently) because there is no actual land at that point. Details, details.
Without starting a comment war or anything, I’d just like to point out that in my opinion the jolly old elf is obviously a Canadian. He’s undeniably familiar with dealing with copious amounts of snow, he’s friendly, and he dresses in our national colours. He might as well be drinking a beer and watching Hockey Night in Canada. I’m just saying.
So, if anyone feels like adding O Canada to their holiday carol repertoire, you can find the music here.
