So is this a repository for all Daily Mail and Daily Express stories about Christmas/migrants/Brexit? They're regularly 'fuming', or 'outraged'

Santa Claus is an 'illegal immigrant' declares top Kremlin official in Christmas 'Cold War'



You might imagine that Santa would be welcome the world over... but you would be wrong.
A Kremlin official yesterday claimed that Father Christmas was an 'imposter' and an 'illegal immigrant'.
Speaker of the Russian Parliament Boris Gryzlov insisted that the only authentic figure for bringing presents to Russia's children was Ded Moroz - Grandfather Frost.
Mr Gryzlov was at Velikiy Ustyug, traditional home of Ded Moroz in the far north of the country, when he said: 'No one will ever be able to take away Ded Moroz from Russia - not Santa Claus nor any other imposters.
ImageIllegal immigrant: Santa Claus is an 'imposter', a top Kremlin official has claimed
Behind his attacks on Santa Claus --whom he urged to 'get out of the profession, at least in Russia' - is a fear of encroaching Western influences which have led to battles in the streets between Santas dressed in white beards and red coats and Ded Morozes dressed in blue.
Other differences are that Ded Moroz rests on Christmas Eve but distributes gifts at the New Year and he rides in a troika - or sleigh - drawn by horses (although he has sometimes been spotted struggling out of a Lada).
Also, instead of elves, he is accompanied by his attractive granddaughter --the Snow Maiden or Snegurochka.
Although he is popular now, life was not always easy for Ded Moroz. He was persecuted under Stalin, being branded a 'priest's ally' in 1928.
At the same time, Christmas trees were banned in the early years of the USSR.
Stalin, however, relented and in 1937 Ded Moroz was rehabilitated, returning in triumph to the Moscow Palace of Unions.
ImageThe real thing: Russian prime minister Vladimir Putin with a man dressed up as Ded Moroz, the Russian equivalent of Santa Claus
There are other key differences between the two men, who can both trace their origins into the mists of time.
Ded Moroz has his feet up on Christmas Eve, only bringing presents a week or so later as Russian celebrate New Year, as he did through most of the Communist era.
Nor does he travel with Rudolf - instead he rides in a troika, a sledge invariably pulled by horses, though many children have also spotted him emerging from a cramped Lada car clutching his bag of presents.
He is usually accompanied by his attractive granddaughter - the Snow Maiden or Snegurochka - who assists him in bringing seasonal happiness.
He comes through the front door, rather than down the chimney.
Walking with a long magical staff, he doesn't say 'Ho, ho, ho" but 'zdravstvuite rebyatishki!' or 'hello kids'.


Long live Putin, short live Santa when we meet him at ze border.

I’m predicting another news story this year on everyone’s outrage and disappointment on - no less - Christmas Day - about how all the turkeys are mouldy and now people have nothing left to eat and have been left starving thanks to Tesco, Sainsburys, Aldi, Lidl, Morrisons and every other supermarket under the sun.

They will then proceed to buy the exact same turkey for Christmas 2022 and face the exact same problem on the special day!
