That's right. How is Santa supposed to live at the North Pole.
It's impossible, because there is no land, only sea, possibly ice...
Saint Nicholas was bishop in ancient Myra (today in Turkey)

This is a common misconception. Santa Claus doesn't actually live at THE north pole. He lives in the town of North Pole, Alaska. No, seriously, there is a guy who lives there who looks like Santa and even changed his name to that. He works as Santa at the Santa Claus House. I've seen him around; nice guy. (North Pole is right by Fairbanks, where I live.)

There are some people at least from there. I remember when Roger Maris was playing baseball, it was pointed out that he and his brother, Rudy, were from Fargo, North Dakota. Also, it has at least two people because Wyoming has the lowest population of any state in the U.S. and I know someone whose grandfather lives in Wyoming.

OMG Santa lives in North Pole! So America-centric! Nah, jk. It's just that Estonian parents tell their children that Santa lives near Rovaniemi, Finnish Lapland in a house between two mountains shaped like ears. It's a good quiz anyway.

Maybe it should be capitalised? It looks very general without a capital and it's hard to notice it's a name for a specific conflict.

The Irish are masters of understatement. A decades long conflict between Nationalists and Unionists in the North of Ireland (a civil war in reality), which got so vicious the British army had to be deployed, is officially known and taught in schools as The Troubles. Though I do think it should have a capital as it is a title.

I am sitting here at 3:03 a.m.laughing my tush off at the hilarious arguments on this quiz concerning the fictional abode of a fictional character. (Yes, I know that Saint Nicholas/Sint Nicolaas/Sinterklaas/Pere Noel/Father Christmas, or whatever else you wish to call him probably existed, but he is dead and his many reincarnations are fictional)
