After discovering the latest omen of the world’s coming demise, the Clog encourages Berkeley students to put down their books and enjoy their short-lived time on earth.

Kyrgyzstan has declared itself to be the new home of Santa Claus. (Please do not read the next sentence if you’re under the age of 10.) Who knew you could declare to be the home of a fictitious character?

This declaration comes on the heels of a Swedish engineering firm determining that the most ideal place for Santa Claus to base his operations out of would be the small Central Asian country. And to think that you and everyone else always considered the North Pole to be St. Nick’s residence.

The best part of this whole story is the fact that Kyrgyzstan is a predominantly Muslim country, which now hopes to jump start its economy by holding Santa Claus related events.

Inspired by the nation of Kyrgyzstan, the Clog declares the 6th floor of Eshleman to be the official home of the Easter bunny.
