I wish you a merry Christmas Bernd 12/24/2017 (Sun) 10:43:06 [Preview] No. 12705
It's that tiem of the year again, Bernd. I'm not sure how the next two days will go, but I'll check back time to times, maybe even continue what I started when I'm not terribly busy... umm, so just as always.
I hope you'll get nice presents from Little Jesus, Bernd, or at least a bite of good food and some rest.

Probably a bit late but this is 2017's KC Christmas card, dug out of the piles of garbage that KC has become.

It's 7th of January.

Although New Year is more important holiday here. We have near 1 week without work here, from 1 to 8-10 (depending on year), so Christmas falls into this long free days. There is also an "old New Year" on 13-14 of January (same Julian calendar as Christmas), but it isn't officially recognized as non-working day. Other long holiday week is from 1st of May, when we have 1st of May and Victory day.

Some Catholics here (they exist) celebrate at 25th though.

We associate Grandfather Frost with New Year more than Christmas, although it is one big holiday week so nobody cares.

There is two shitty photos I made at 7th when I was on walk in Moscow's center with a woman.

"Official" Ded Moroz now sits in Veliky Ustyug, but this is modern invention: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veliky_Ustyug

Technically Ded Moroz is created as answer to Santa in 19th century on basis of old pagan winter deity/spirit Moroz/Morozko, and he just lives "in the forest". He wasn't friendly or evil, and acted like typical chtonic spirit, but modern image is mostly Santa-like, with required attributes like bag of gifts and spruce tree.

People rarely care about it though. But most of NY/Christmas items now are about Santa, red hats everywhere (Ded Moroz has blue clothes and different hat), blue are rare. Although reindeer symbolics are rare, only in small gifts (Ded Moroz also has no reindeers) and no chimney with socks - gifts are placed strictly under tree (or just given to person directly of course). People don't care about it either, although purists notice this every year with rants about "Santaization" of NY.

We are americanized now. I blame Coca-Cola.

Intradesting, thanks.

In region where I live we also have non-santa Christmas time old fart who gives good kids presents (and charcoal to bad ones). He's called Gwiazdor (translated as Starman, Christmas is sometimes translated as Gwiazdka - "Little Star" so his name probably comes from that). I have actually no clue where his story comes from, maybe I'll stop being lazy later and check wikipedia and report about my findings.
Gwiazdor is unique to my region, other parts of Poland get other present bringers. I also remember he had a wife or some sort of female helper, not sure, also I don't remember her name.
Anyway we're also a victim of americanisation and red hats and fat red dwarfs are everywhere (although I'm not sure if Gwiazdor looked differently in original, probably not).
I'm glad feast of st. Nickolaus is on 6th december and you have excuse to expect presents twice in this month, even if Nicky brings more modest ones.

Dammit Poland, here in America we're stuck with stupid Santa and you guys get Ziggy friggin' Stardust to hand out your presents.

Danke Walesa.

Nice grill on the right.

I think it was discussed back on 8 but our Father Winter concept is fairly new. Somewhere about the middle of the 19th century some poets used the term as an anthropomorphisation of winter, frost and snow. Then in the first half of the 20th was viewed as a person, then the communist regime pressured to use the name instead of St. Nick as some kind of an atheist Santa. I believe he doesn't have any old Hungarian roots and his figure was entirely loaned from Germans and Slavs. I should check folk tales but those are just way too many and I don't have access to enough collections.
