Finnish Santa Claus Snubs Russian Father Christmas

The thirty-ninth Santa Claus gathering of is currently taking place in Denmark's capital under the slogan 'Get your sleds ready in summer'. Before the opening of the forum in Copenhagen, in Baken, the oldest theme park in Europe, a Christmas tree was set up, where adults and children gathered. Father Christmases from Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America will discuss the major Christmas and New Year issue: why cards and presents from Father Christmas arrive late, which presents to give children, and how to make Christmas celebrations more fun and more interesting.

As Russian Father Christmas told a Rosbalt correspondent from his home in Veliki Ustyug, Volgograd Region, 'it's a great shame that that my colleagues have ignored Russian Father Christmas. Particularly so as Santa Claus from Finland, who I've known for three years, didn't inform me of this important event. But I don't think this is any reason to be bitter, because my main task is to make children happy', he said.
