In Russia Father Christmas is ‘Ded Moroz’ - Father Frost and he has a daughter ‘Snegoritchka’ so one presumes he also has/had a wife...
Here's Ded Moroz and Sneguritchka, notice the blue robes, nice. 'Sneg' is Russian for 'Snow' BTW...

Lets have another music question.
Who first released Hanging on the Telephone?
And as a bonus, how many different versions have been released to the nearest 5.

Well, assume many don't know, and were probably also of the belief it was a Blondie composition. It was released 2 years previous to the Blondie version, and there has been some other covers from the likes of Will Young! to Def Leppard .

As an aside re: music and originals - listen to the best version of Torn ever, by Ednaswap, not 100% sure if it's first, but it's pre Natalie Umbruligla....

As the question seems to have everyone stumped, here is the original. Anyone care to guess the number of different artists who have released a version?

Might be the original but it lacks the punch of Blondies version - 5 covers maybe?
