How another Aussie in Bosnia celebrates Christmas!

It was a few days ago when I introduced you to Dimitri Hantas, a fellow Australian who currently calls Bosnia home.

Earlier today, I posted my personal experience of Christmas in Bosnia. Well, check this video of how Dimitri commemorated the special occasion down the road in Sarajevo!

Here, dressed as Santa Claus, he jumps right into the thick of the Christmas spirit as he gives away bags of lollies to passers-by on Sarajevo's main walking strip.

Dimitri tells me that he and his partner, Mirjana, had put a lot of effort into planning it, with the latter staying up late the night before preparing the lolly bags.

Awesome work, guys! I am sure smiles were brought to many faces yesterday all because of you.

For those who would like to hear more from Dimitri, you can follow his movements on his blog, 'The Balkan Corner.'

(PS. Dimitri, you are one crazy bloke, mate! No way I would have the gall to do that!)

  1. Great post, very informative! We are running a Christmas photo challenge at the moment by which we hope to gather photos and descriptions of Christmas traditions from all around the world. If you'd like to participate, write a couple of sentences about Christmas in Australia or in Bosnia, send us a photo to represent it and we will publish the best entries on our blog with a link to your site. Sounds good? :) Here you will find more details: http://hitchhikershandbook.com/2013/12/21/christmas-traditions-around-the-world-photo-challenge/
