At the risk of disappointing the dreamer in you, Santa Claus is not from Lapland but rather from... America. He was fathered by the New-York poet (and theology professor) Clement Clarke Moore (1779-1863) in a text titled: A Visit from St. Nicholas. English-speakers will find the poem in its original version in the links below.
Legend has it that Moor had written this poem (which made him famous) on a sleigh, as he was heading back to his Greenwich Village home to spend the 1822 Christmas eve with his family. His description of Santa Claus had in fact been inspired by his driver, a potbellied man of Dutch origin.
In it, St Nicholas appeared as a rather small, podgy man with a chubby bearded face, dressed in a fur coat and carrying a big bag of toys in a sleigh dragged by eight reindeers.
