Norway newspaper publishes Father Christmas 'obituary'
Father Christmas died just short of his 227th birthday, according to the announcement

A Norwegian newspaper has apologised to its readers after publishing a death notice for "Father Christmas".

The fictional death announcement was for "Dear Father Christmas, born 12 December 1788", said to have died on 3 December in Nordkapp, Norway's northernmost point.

The funeral was to be held on 28 December at the "North Pole Chapel".

Norway's second-biggest selling newspaper blamed an error in its internal procedures.

He's alive and well and will be appearing at the KAT's bazaar today at Dum Spiros. :x-btu:
