+ Cheburashka 2

My students gave me a Cheburashka as Christmas gift. Actually, you know I already have a Cheburashka on my back pack, however, the gift was a little bit big and the surprised thing was... he could speak!

Speaking Cheburashka (Speaking Cheburashka)

When I push his left arm, he speaks several kinds of phrases. It's so cute.

However,

...yeah,

What did he say?

I have to learn Russian language more...



+ Blue Santa? +

As the last year, there are not so much Christmas' somethings in Irkutsk. However, well, according to my experience, Russian Santa appeared around the third week and you can meet him until around the second week of January.

You know the Santa Claus wears the red coat and the red pants. However in Russia, the blue colour is also popular. Russian like blue than red.

Actually, American Santa and Russian Santa are different from each other. Well, the Russian Santa is called "Дед Мороз(Ded Moroz)" and he is a fairy of frost. He wears long gown and has a magic stick. He gets on a troika instead of the sledge which pulled by eight reindeers. He always bring his grand daughter called "Снегурочка (Snow Maiden)". He gives gifts to children on the New Year's day, not Dec 25th. Well, "Дед Мороз" is "Дед Мороз". He is not the Santa Claus.

Дед Мороз(Ded Moroz) (Дед Мороз(Ded Moroz))

A TV show made an interesting investigation. The American style red Santa Claus and the Russian style blue Ded Moroz competed which is earlier to get 20 cheek kisses from girls on streets. Ded Moroz got 20 kisses easily, however, for the American style Santa Claus it was so hard. Of course, it was because of in Russia. If the competition was held in the U.S, the result would be opposite. Well, I mean that, actually, I had thought that all Christian community (and Japan) has the same Santa Claus, however, it was not true. American style was not world style.

Well, as the last year, I made a couple of examinations on the Christmas day.

I am also blue.
