Tajikistan to Santa: Drop Ded (Moroz)

Tajikistan has banned Ded Moroz, the Russian version of Santa Claus. Which is really too bad, because in Tajik, Santa/Ded is called Boboi Barfi. How can a guy named "Barfi" not be beloved by all?

And yes, I believe the Tajik name is related to my favorite brand of household cleaner. Let it barf, let it barf, let it barf!
