‘Since the 1950s, students of technology have provided smart and friendly Father Christmases through Teekkaripukit. I have found that you don’t need anything grand or a fat wallet to have a good Christmas; true Christmas spirit comes from the warmth and presence between people. There is a special magic to Christmas Eve. As others are at home having Christmas meals, several Father Christmases of different shapes and sizes are running around the streets. I never feel like I'm working as I'm going around and saying hello to colleagues in passing. Rather, I feel grateful that I get to spend 15 different Christmases in one night.’

Nicholas Kukka, student of Communications Engineering and Head Father Christmas of Teekkaripukit in 2016
