The whole December in & nbsp; Veliky Ustyug works “ Mail of Father Frost ''. Letters & nbsp; & mdash; millions.
On the eve of the New Year, children write to Santa Claus, not hesitating to express their innermost dreams and desires. But & nbsp; are not written by & nbsp; only they. & Nbsp;
Opinion of Santa Claus, Veliky Ustyug :
For & nbsp; 20 & nbsp; years on & nbsp; mail in & nbsp; Veliky Ustyug received 4 & nbsp; million letters. Children often ask for gadgets (phones, laptops, tablets), hoverboards, longboards, large dolls or construction toys. But & nbsp; there are kids who ask to give them & nbsp; in the middle of winter a basket of berries, as in the & nbsp; tale about Frost, & nbsp; & mdash; I & nbsp; received such a letter from & nbsp; Vasilisa from & nbsp; Stavropol. Or celebrate your birthday in a & nbsp; limousine, as Stas dreamed of from & nbsp; Yekaterinburg.

Over the past two years, more and more children have been wishing people from & nbsp; all over the world, yes & nbsp; and & nbsp; me, the old man, health & shy; me. This is especially important now. By the way, during & nbsp; this time I & nbsp; received along with & nbsp; letters some interesting gifts: cones jam, ginger to increase immunity and & nbsp; medical masks, some of them were made by hand.
But & nbsp; I am especially touched when children ask for gifts not & nbsp; for themselves, but & nbsp; for parents, brothers and & nbsp; sisters, grandmothers and & nbsp; grandfathers, friends. & Nbsp; I have a box, in which I & nbsp; keep the kindest and & nbsp; touching messages. For example, a letter from Sasha Bykov from & nbsp; Omsk region: he & nbsp; asked to give his little sister a doll, great-grandfather & nbsp; & mdash; new boots, and & nbsp; grandmother & nbsp; & mdash; a basket of apples. And & nbsp; Sasha Prokhorov from & nbsp; St. Petersburg told me about & nbsp; girl Vika with a & nbsp; difficult diagnosis, which he & nbsp; promised: if she & nbsp; learns to walk on her own, I & nbsp; will definitely come to & nbsp; her at & nbsp; guests. I & nbsp; believe that Vika will take her first steps, and & nbsp; we & nbsp; will meet her. There were especially many such good stories of human mutual assistance during the & nbsp; time of my participation in the & nbsp; social project “ The Journey of Santa Claus with & nbsp; NTV ''. I & nbsp; always try to tell about & nbsp; them, because this is the & nbsp; very warm, which will warm and & nbsp; & nbsp; severe frost. To envelop another person with attention and & nbsp; care for & nbsp; forces to everyone, the main thing & nbsp; & mdash; want to do it.
Adults write to me too, it's not true that they stop believing in & nbsp; miracles! The girls are asking to help them & nbsp; meet the man of their & nbsp; dreams, health to children, family happiness. And & nbsp; men want a career, a new car, a raise. Older people talk about & nbsp; their experiences for & nbsp; the fate of their children and & nbsp; grandchildren. It's great when the & nbsp; family has several generations, and & nbsp; they take care of each other, and & nbsp; and & nbsp; on New Year's Eve get together.
New, 2022 & nbsp; year is coming very soon. I & nbsp; wish you good days, happy moments and & nbsp; good health. May everything that you & nbsp; dream of will come true! I hug in kilometers.
