Santa dies again

What would Christmas be without Santa dying?

Back in 2016, I posted a list of various Santas that have died over the years, often collapsing in front of crowds of horrified children. The Moscow Times reports that it's happened again:

A Russian Santa Claus has reportedly died during New Year’s festivities at a kindergarten in Siberia.
Known as Ded Moroz, or Father Frost, Russian versions of Santa Claus host children’s holiday parties with the fairy tale snow maiden Snegurochka, in a still-popular Soviet-era tradition.
A man in a Ded Moroz costume died during festivities at a kindergarten in the Siberian city of Kemerovo, the local news website reported Tuesday.
“The man felt ill in the kindergarten, he was taken in an ambulance but died on the way to the hospital,” the outlet cited an unnamed medical source as saying.
The unidentified 67-year-old Ded Moroz “complained of chest pain” and died before the ambulance arrived, Interfax cited another unnamed source as saying.

With a name like Ded Moroz, what do you expect?
