    "The Russian government has banned a television advertisement for denying the existence of Father Christmas. [...] It said that declaring that Father Frost did not exist implied that parents were not telling the truth, so undermining children's' trust in them."

    Lol, what an interesting story.

    Strangely enough, I'm the only person I know (with the exception of the rest of my family) who wasn't raised to believe in Santa Claus. I keep forgetting that millions of kids elsewhere actually think this guy is up at the North Pole! Perhaps this will serve as a reminder to keep my mouth shut around the little ones.
