Power of worship – 956 kW for Dedushka Frost in Minsk 📷

After Soviet communists abolished God and replaced Christmas with a New Year, this is a major holiday in mostly (by culture and superstition) ‘Christian’ Orthodox Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine.

In spite of no frost and no snow, Dedushka Frost is being made happy with bountiful New Year offerings.
