470- The Three Santas of Slovenia
Slovenia is a small country in Central Europe nestled between Italy, Austria, Croatia and Hungary. It's a land of snowy white peaks, green valleys, and turquoise rivers.

And in order to have a Christmas season that reflects that history and speaks to all Slovenians, you need three magical men.
