Kim and Roberto, real prototypes of iconic characters. Beautiful love story of chewing gum liners ‘Love is…

Beautiful love story of chewing gum liners
The sweet romantic series “Love is …” has become the most popular in the post-Soviet space and the former republics of the USSR. The liners of this Turkish chewing gum were collectible and exchanged. Fortunately, I also have such a romantic collection. But I couldn’t even guess about a beautiful love story behind these bright images. It turns out that behind the images of a romantic couple of lovers were real prototypes. Actually, it was a story about love conquering death.

The author of these images was a cartoonist from New Zealand Kim Grove Casali. Aged 19, she began traveling around the world, and after 6 years she settled in California. There she met her future Italian husband Roberto Casali. It was he who inspired her to create two funny characters – a couple of lovers, the prototypes of which were they themselves.

Kim began to draw various episodes from the life of a married couple on napkins, signing above: “Love is …”, and ending the phrase below with text that matches the picture. According to the artist, it was like keeping a personal diary, which describes how her feelings developed.

Why Russian Santa is the happiest in the world

Ded Moroz and Snegurochka (Snowmaiden). Why Russian Santa is the happiest in the world

Why Russian Santa is the happiest in the world

Called Ded Moroz (Father Frost), Russian Santa, undoubtedly, is the happiest in the world. And in particular, he is happier than Western Santa. Why? In my opinion, the main difference between him and any Western Santa Claus – he is not alone. Indeed, this is so cool, as he has a beautiful young girl named Snegurochka, or Snow maiden. According to belief, she is his granddaughter. However, nobody knows anything about her parents, and there is no evidence she is his granddaughter. The fact is – she is just a beautiful girl who accompanies him everywhere. And this is a clue why he is endlessly happy.

Besides, Russian Father Frost doesn’t have to crawl through the dirty chimney, like a thief, to enter a house! Ded Moroz in Russia enters houses quite legally with his beautiful girl. Warmly welcomed in every house. And sometimes even too warmly.

In particular, there is a tradition to treat Russian Ded Moroz with a glass of vodka and delicious food, in every house. So, the fabulous couple visits lots of houses per day… Imagine how our Father Frost looks and feels at the end of the day. And what about children, who are impatiently waiting for the meeting with Father Frost and Snegurochka? All they need to do to get a Christmas present – to tell a poem or sing a song, or just tell how well they behaved.

Rasputins letter to Nicholas about his own death

Rasputins letter to Nicholas about his own death
In December 1916 Grigory Rasputin sent a letter to Nicholas II about his own death: “I feel that I shall leave life before January 1st. I wish to make known to the Russian people, to Papa (the Tsar), to the Russian Mother (the Tsarina) and to the Children what they must understand. If I am killed by common assassins, and especially by my brothers the Russian peasants, you, the Tsar of Russia, will have nothing to fear for your children, they will reign for hundreds of years. But if I am murdered by boyars, nobles, and if they shed my blood, their hands will remain soiled with my blood for twenty-five years and they will leave Russia. Brothers will kill brothers, and they will kill each other and hate each other, and for twenty-five years there will be no peace in the country.
