Samichlaus lives in the local woods

Santa Claus has fascinated children for centuries. Samichlaus, as they call him in Swiss German, also has a red costume and a long white beard, but he doesn't come from the North Pole. He lives in the forest with his assistant, Schmutzli. We paid a visit to their hut. (swissinfo, Raffaella Rossello)
