santa

Christmas in a Muslim, post-Soviet country is a bit schizophrenic. Christmas isn't celebrated as it is the west, but many of the icons are visible. Azeris like a secular New Years (The REAL new years in Novruz in March), but they also sometimes celebrate the Russian Christmas on January 6th. Nevertheless, this Santa looks a little worse for the wear
