the mascots of christmas

So I’m walking around today. And it’s COLD. I’m only planning on walking to St. Sofia (really close, like two blocks away) seeing if they have any Christmas stuff up, taking a photo if they do, and coming back to the warm. Turns out there were two flaws with that plan. One is as I closed in on St. Sofia, I heard music and someone saying something coming over a loudspeaker. My pace quickened - could it be A DEMONSTRATION??? FLAGS!!!!

Well, I’m an idiot because first off, who is going to protest Christmas? And secondly, duh - CHRISTMAS PAGENT - way better then a protest. Would there be crazy costumes like my favorite photos of all time from the Autumn pagent? Would there be dancing? Of course there would be. This is Kiev. It does not disappoint. May I present, the wacky mascots of Christmas….

I have no clue what any of them are. Wait, lies, the last one is a mobile phone. But if I had to guess? Testicle, Blue cowboy penis with a vest, Space bird in a marching band. Oh yeah, and mobile phone.

There was also a stage show, with some girls singing and dancing to keep warm…

and santa was there with a polar bear….

and I was there with my kick ass hat, head all warm and looking like I’ve always lived here….
