Details: The orchestra of the Moldovan Border Police has visited the Palanca-Maiaky-Udobne checkpoint in Odesa Oblast and performed New Year and Christmas songs and Ukrainian carols.

The message says the Ukrainian border guards and all those crossing the Ukrainian-Moldovan border at the time "briefly plunged into the magical atmosphere of the festive event".

"We observe the traditions, and on the eve of the winter holidays, we surprise our Ukrainian colleagues and travellers with carols and festive greetings!", said the Moldovan border guards.

Earlier this year, Irish Agriculture Minister Charlie McConalogue officially allowed reindeer harnessed to Santa's sleigh to enter the European Union.

In addition, a 24-year-old resident of Frosinone, central Italy, named Mario escaped from house arrest to prison, explaining that he did not want to spend Christmas alone.
