Kyrgyzstan: Santa's new home!

The Gulf Daily News reports Santa will join a pantheon of Marxist and Russian celebrities in Kyrgyzstan, as authorities in Bishkek prepare to name one of their snowy peaks 'Mount Santa Claus.'

The effort started as three climbers set off to scale the designated peak, which Kyrgyz authorities are facetiously insisting will be Santa's new home.

The group is due to reach its destination and bury a capsule containing the Kyrgyz flag just in time for Christmas Eve.
