Santa Claus has officially arrived to the Bulgarian capital Sofia with a helicopter of the Bulgarian government.

Santa, who came together with Snow White and live-size reindeer, was welcomed at the VIP terminal of the Sofia International Airport by about 100 kids from three orphanages in Sofia.

Bulgarian Prime Minister Borisov and several Cabinet members also joined him in wishing "Merry Christmas" to the orphans and all Bulgarian kids.

The Parliamentary Group of Bulgaria's ruling party GERB and the GERB Members of the European Parliament helped Santa Claus present the orphans with Christmas presents.
