ABC WEDNESDAY--"Y" is for "Yuletide"


No, not late on these photos of Santa Claus, or Deda Mraz (Grandfather Frost), as he is known here. The Yuletide continues!  In Serbia, Deda Mraz makes his appearance on New Year's Day, when these photos were taken. I'd organized a small party for my 'older' friends to meet my grandchildren. Among the guests was a good friend who is an actor and who recently filmed a commercial as Santa.  He got to keep the suit, so...

Mila wasn't too thrilled about sitting in his lap, but her cousin Luka didn't bat an eye.

See other Y's on ABC WEDNESDAY.

Aw, poor Mila! I think kids at that age are more frightened of him than delighted. Except my youngest, of course. When she was 2, she ran screaming towards Santa yelling his name and jumped into his lap. Too funny!

Classic Santa shots. I guess it's not that surprising that some children are scared of Santa and others take it in their stride. My daughter was usually eager to jump on Santas lap. I can remember standing in line at shopping centers with her because she was determined to chat with Santa. She's 28 now so that was a long time ago. Happy New Year ! Carver, ABC Wed. Team

What a sweet Santa even if Mila doesn't think so.

Oh how cute! Don't you know, it's an enduring holiday tradition to have a screaming fit on Santa's lap? ;^)

That guy can be daunting! I can't believe I didn't think of Yuletide (from the Y-ankee) in Belgrade.


Happy New Year,
