First of all, greets to the neighbor. ;)

About the Santa, in Serbia the same looking guy brings presents on New Year's Eve. He has nothing to do with Christmas and we call him Grandpa-Frost (Deda-Mraz in Serbian).

Despite the globalization, Grandpa-Frost prevails and I like it. Christmas should really be about Christ. Besides, members of every religion can appreciate Grandpa-Frost. ;)
