MOSCOW, November 20 (Itar-Tass) — Santa Claus of Veliky Ustyug will come to Moscow on Sunday to celebrate his birthday at the Moscow estate, reported the Moscow public relations committee.
According to the committee, “A Grand Snow Show” will be held at his Moscow mansion in honour of the winter magician.
Moscow friends of Santa Claus decided to make an unusual present for him—“Snow rose for Santa Claus”. Later in the day, there will be presentation of a new computer play at the site of the Santa Claus estate. The New Year wizard will be the main character of the play.
Santa Claus was born on November 18, the day when the real winter with sub-zero frosts starts at his Homeland – Veliky Ustyug. Santa Claus receives guests and gifts on this day at his permanent estate in the Vologda Region. He switches on lights on the first New Year fir-tree here.
It was decided to mark Santa Clause’s birthday twice to the joy of Moscow kids: at the wizard’s native land and the next Sunday at his Moscow residence. It will be the sixth time this year that the Moscow estate of Santa Claus will joyfully fling open doors for hundreds of well-wishers, desiring to congratulate the white-bearded guard of gifts.
A great surprise waits for the miracle-maker himself. This time, everyone can congratulate Santa Klaus personally by writing his or her congratulatory message on a traditional paper snowflake. “The Snow Rose” will flourish precisely out of these snowflakes to the surprise and joy of the wizard.
According to the old and kind tradition, jolly games, songs and dances as well as, of course, miracles are in store for all guests of the holiday at the fairy-tale estate.
