Serbian Santa for next year?

Belfast has its Black Santa, something which adds colour to the city's religious heritage and traditions.

However, as more people from the Orthodox religious faith come to live and worship in Northern Ireland, is it not time for legitimate variations in celebrating Christmas to be acknowledged?

From a strict Orthodox perspective, some true followers celebrate Christmas Eve on January 6 and Christmas Day on January 7. So, perhaps Belfast City Council could arrange for a traditional Serbian Santa.
