    Question Difference b/w Santa Claus & Father Frost
    Question: What is the difference between your traditional Santa Claus and the Russian Father Frost?

    Prize: $10.00 GB's (for just guessing it)

    Looking forward to your guesses.

    Father Frost doesn't come down the chimney, and he doesn't live at the north pole.

    True, but that's not it.

    HINT: The correct answer is a truth, but a funny truth.

    And he has no reindeer, and he does New years, not Christmas.

    The clothes are different, and Father Frost has a magic stick - Santa doesn't. Also Santa says "ho, ho, ho" and FF doesn't.

    And he's not fat, and he doesn't say ho-ho-ho

    But that's not funny. And he takes his granddaughter with him. Not funny either.

    Santa delivers presents with reindeers, Russia's Father Frost turns up a bit tipsy with a young girl on his arm.

    Letters to FF don't ask for presents. Not funny either.

    Does anyone know why he is "a bit tipsy", and in some instances frankly drunk?

    ah! Never thought of limiting the contest to be a pure guess...

    That link quotes the guy saying: "and it's a tradition in this country to be a bit tipsy." That's not so... That's a stereotype. The fact that Father Frost is indeed very often frankly drunk is explained differently.

    Anyone knows how? I'll pay another $10 GB's to the one who tells me right. Feel free to employ the means of the "technical Revolution" this time.

    You wish it were champaign!!

    But your answer is essentially correct, Donna. PM me your PayPal addy!

    An average Russian Father Frost goes around dozens of houses on one night. With every next house, he gets more and more drunk... All true. I've seen such FFs sleeping in the snow before...

    Thank you for your participation, everyone!!

    I often wonder when (if?) Geno sleeps. I think I've caught him sleeping. He hasn't posted in over an hour. And it's a bit after 5AM in St Petersburg. Dunno if that's where he is, though.

    I do sleep, but not much this Q4, that's true...

    I got your $10 GB's over to you, Donna! Check your PayPal account.

    You wrote that according to your sources they used champaign when they welcomed him to the city. It is not about the city. It is about those hired FF's that go around houses greeting kids and giving away presents, drinking a bit at every house along the way.

    I am in St. Pete now, but moving to Oxford, UK (for half a year) in less than a month. Then I will be 3 hours (of time difference) closer to you, and you will have a very hard time catching me sleeping.

    "Here Comes Santa Claus"
    They say that when you make a wish, if you repeat three times what you want, you might get it.

    So, Here Comes Santa Claus

    Now I know why he's coming to town.

    No wonder he likes to enter the house from the chimney.

    No wonder he's always smiling.

    Now, I wonder what Mrs. Claus will do to him , after she find out what he's being up to , all these years.

    Santa may know whether you have been naughty or nice, but now you know how naughty Santa is.

    ho-ho-ho
