Holiday Globalization

Am American Christmas tradition hits Tajikistan:
"Tajiks added a new element to the traditional Nouruz celebrations this year -- a slightly modified version of Santa Claus.

"'Nouruz Santa's' long white beard and sack bear a striking resemblance to Santa Claus, but his robe and walking stick are more colorful and wrapped with flowers."
