The Moscow Ballet is performing its “Great Russian Nutcracker” across the United States. This performance includes a moment where the principal character, Masha, is given a Dove of Peace during the Christmas party scene.

The other Great Russian Nutcracker, Vladimir Putin, will give Donald Трамп a cash bonus by New Years.

Decades of conflict and political instability have all but destroyed Afghanistan’s once-thriving heritage and tourism industry, but new efforts are being made to promote the country’s spectacular riches. Among Afghanistan’s top attractions is Band-e-Amir, the country’s first national park, created in 2009.

Afghan officials promise that during tourist visits to Band-e-Amir, the Taliban and U.S. Coalition forces will only detonate a maximum of three bombs.

Hobby Lobby craft store chain owners Steve and Jackie Green recently opened the $500 million Museum of the Bible in Washington D.C.

It has more than 3,000 artifacts, including fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls, a first edition of the King James Bible, and a one-ton stone from the Western Wall.

Some artifacts are still in boxes waiting to be put onto the floor, including the Ark of the Covenant. Museum officials are having a hard time getting the Ark on the floor, because it keeps disintegrating everyone who touches it.
