Santa Claus looking at my boza.

         " Boza, also bosa (from Turkish: boza ), is a popular fermented beverage in Kazakhstan, Turkey, Kyrgyzstan, Albania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, parts of Romania, Serbia, Ukraine. It is a malt drink, made from wheat or millet in Bulgaria and Romania. It has a thick consistency and a low alcohol content (usually around 1%), and has a slightly acidic sweet flavor.
          In Bulgaria it is part of the traditional "Banitsa* with Boza" breakfast. Although a popular beverage, boza is used to describe something (film, piece of music, etc.) to be bland, boring, and of low quality. This comes from the turbid consistency and colour of Bulgarian boza. Also frequently used as pejorative is "thin (diluted) boza". Most brands of Boza in Bulgaria are currently sweetened with Aspartame and other artificial sweeteners. Good boza of high quaility is sweetened with raw cane sugar and it has genuine taste of boza Before 1989, there was only natural boza. Now for decreased price and longer shelf life, most boza is artificially sweetened."

"In January 2009, in Skokie Illinois (USA) starts running the country's first industrial plant for the production of boza. Installation is made ​​in Haskovo, and the mill is owned by the Bulgarian from Sofia."

- One boza than six.
Film "The Boy Turns Man" - 1972
" The movie tells the story of Ran (Trifonov) and his schoolmates, the graduates at the high school in a small town. During the last days as a schoolboy, Ran thinks on the possible roads of the life while walking on the streets of his hometown as if for the last time. Three different women are involved in these moments of quest, consideration and valedictory meetings."

In two words - Ran's in love with the shopkeeper.
