LIFE imitates art (Borat): BISHKEK (Reuters) – “Seeking a novel remedy to revive its rickety economy, the tiny ex-Soviet state of Kyrgyzstan has declared itself the new home of Santa Claus.

“Citing Swedish engineering firm that determined the ideal spot for Santa’s global toy delivery hub, officials in this predominantly Muslim country have quickly moved to capitalize on the finding.

“They named a mountain peak after Santa, to join Mounts Lenin, and Yeltsin, and declared 2008 The Year of Santa Claus.

“Its slogan will be ‘Kyrgyzstan is the land of Santa Clauses’, said Kyrgyz tourism authority spokeswoman Nurkhon Tajibayeva.”
