On December 20, a real holiday took place at the Zavidovo recreation complex - the country's Chief Santa Claus, as part of his trip, stopped at Zavidovo, personally congratulated everyone on the coming New Year and answered numerous questions from children and adults. At a press conference, Santa Claus said that he had already received more than 4 million letters, and his assistants were sorting mail around the clock. The winter wizard noted that if "a good wish, it will certainly come true," and for him the main gift is people's faith in magic. It came as a surprise to many that Santa Claus celebrates his birthday on November 18, his favorite dish is shangi (shanezhki) with cranberries and lingonberries. But no matter how hard the schoolchildren of the village of Mokshino tried to find out the age of their grandfather, they did not succeed in getting an answer. The guys read several poems to the wizard and asked, among other things,how he manages to deliver all the gifts in one New Year's Eve. On this day, anyone could come closer to magic and take a picture with Santa Claus in the thematic photo zone "Zavidovo", and guests of "Zavidovo" and schoolchildren gladly took part in the animation program with the participation of Grandfather and his assistants - the Snow Maiden and the Snowman. After the press conference, Santa Claus went to Tver to take part in the pre-holiday events. A theatrical performance took place in the recreation center “Khimvolokno”, and on Lenin Square the magician lit the lights on the main tree of the city. The journey of Santa Claus in the Tver region did not end there. On December 21, he wished the young athletes from the Konakovsky Ice school a Happy New Year and lit the lights on the main tree in the village of Mokshino, Konakovsky District, Tver Region.
