Where does Santa Claus live

It is known that Santa Claus lives in a small town - Veliky Ustyug, which is located in the Vologda region. The residence of the chief Russian sorcerer is located in a magnificent pine forest on the banks of the Sukhona River and is a manor house built of wood in the traditional Russian style. The magnificent patterned house contains 13 rooms with all the amenities for the grandfather and his many assistants.

There is a separate room in the mansion, set aside for a dressing room, where numerous grandfather's outfits for all occasions are kept. The wishing room is considered the most magical in the house, as they say that any dreams can be made into reality in it: for this you just need to sit down and make a wish under the ringing of a magic bell, which will surely come true in the new year. Santa Claus learns about all his dreams in his magical bedroom - during sleep, and, by the way, the feather bed in grandfather's bed is not simple, but special: Frost sleeps on a grass-ant, so that his health is stronger. It is interesting that Santa Claus has his own pillow for every day of the week: from very small on Monday to huge on Sunday, and in case there are a lot of guests, there is a special - the eighth pillow. In addition, there is a magic mirror in the bedroom of Santa Claus, which has a “rejuvenating” effect on the elderly and “educating” on the young. The only unknown is the place in the tower where the gifts for the children are kept - this room is kept in strict confidence by the grandfather.

Every year, on the eve of New Year's holidays, thousands of children from all over Russia come to visit Father Frost in Veliky Ustyug, who want to see their grandfather's magic house with their own eyes, and at the end of December, Father Frost himself comes to Moscow in order to light the country's most important New Year tree. The arrival of Santa Claus is always accompanied by festive dances, songs, round dances, horseback riding and fun snowball games.
