Human Interest Santa Claus Is Gay and Falls in Love with a Man Named Harry in Sweet Norwegian Christmas Ad The Norwegian Postal Service is celebrating the upcoming 50th anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexuality in Norway with their heartwarming holiday ad By Abigail Adams Abigail Adams Instagram Twitter Digital News Writer, PEOPLE People Editorial Guidelines Published on November 24, 2021 01:39 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Posten, the Norwegian Postal Service, is celebrating the upcoming 50th anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexuality in Norway with a heartwarming holiday advertisement. In the ad, titled "When Harry Met Santa," Saint Nick finds himself falling in love with a man whose home he visits each year. The pair first meet accidentally while a shirtless Harry is grabbing a glass of water on Christmas Eve as Santa leaves presents in a nearby room. The two lock eyes briefly before Santa disappears up the chimney — and fireworks appear in the sky. Harry anxiously awaits Santa's return each year following their initial meeting, and the pair's bond continues to deepen with each passing year, making their time apart increasingly difficult. Posten/YouTube Coca-Cola's Santa Claus Is Now on Cameo and Ready to Send Personalized Messages for the Holidays After a particularly bittersweet goodbye one year, Harry confesses his love to Santa in a special letter addressed to The North Pole. "Dear Santa, All I want for Christmas is you," he wrote, ending the note with a small heart. Posten/YouTube Then, while waiting for Santa the next year, Harry is surprised to find his presents are being delivered by Posten. "Hey! Here are some packages addressed to you," the postal worker says in the ad, handing over the gifts before wishing Harry a Merry Christmas.

"Well, I arraigned some help this year so I can be with you," Santa says, before the two share a kiss. "In 2022, Norway marks 50 years of being able to love whoever we want," Posten writes at the end of the clip. "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year." Posten/YouTube The real-life husband of the actor who plays Harry in the ad also got in on the fun. "That's my husband kissing Santa!" Mats Strandberg wrote on Twitter.
