From festive participants of a Belgian festival and the world's Santa Claus meetup in Denmark to protesters burning flares and effigies in Asia, Sputnik has collected a patchy mosaic of this past week's most interesting events.

Fashion shows, bizarre festivals and competitions, loud protests and sports competitions, natural disasters and political gatherings, conflicts and election campaigns — the last seven days have given the world a lot to keep up with and think about.
