Around this time of year, there is a lot of competition to make the Santa at your store stand out, but what this newspaper did took that a bit too far.

“Don’t worry, kids, Santa isn’t dead! But a newspaper in Norway is sure to be on this year’s naughty list after it accidentally published a fake obituary for Father Christmas.
