Snowy Mosques

Well…not quite. To be technically correct, a new mosque is to be built in northern Norway not Lapland per se, but, to me at least, any places that are full of perma-snow are ipso facto Santa’s land.  

An unnamed Saudi business man has decided donate nearly $3 million to build the first ever Mosque in the Arctic region, in northernmost Norway.
Thanks to Al Shams and Al Arabiyya for the story and picture.
