    • 2020 December 21, Jiang, Xihao; Carlos Garcia Rawlins, “Santa welcomes visitors at winter wonderland in China's Arctic Town”, in Karishma Singh, editor, Reuters[1], archived from the original on 08 May 2022, China:
      Mohe, known as China's Arctic Town, holds the record for its lowest-ever temperature of minus 52.3 Celsius (minus 62.1 Fahrenheit), on Feb. 13, 1969.
      For most visitors, the highlight of a trip is the fulfilment of a long-held wish to meet Santa.
      "I've achieved my childhood dream," said Huang Liwen, 30, who had travelled to Mohe from Guangdong province in southern China.
