Terve! Hello! Hohoho! The Winter is my favourite time of the year and, of course, Christmas is the highlight of this very special season!

Mama and I want to look smashing so we started the day with an icy bath. I hope you’re not freezing while admiring us in this picture. 🙂


Of course, we’re both thinking of my big brother Ranzo and his lovely girlfriend Nora. We are very happy knowing they are doing fine. Hopefully there will be snow in Vienna, too!


I ordered a nice card with Quintana and I think Mervi did a good job. Of course, it’s impossible to do a bad job with a motive like this beautiful polar bear girl! I think I start dreaming again …..


Listening to Christmas carols is a nice tradition and lying on the soft snow makes it very cosy and relaxing.


Maybe you remember the ‘second me’? Naturally, I have to wish a merry Christmas to him as well!


My Estonian friend Aron has made a lovely snowman and it looks like Santa has already visited him with lots of gifts. I wish him and his parents Friida and Nord a snowy Christmas!


Hope celebrates her first Christmas in Orsa. We haven’t heard if Ewa is still in her den but we know that Wilbär is keeping Hope company. God jul till er alla i Orsa! I know some words in Swedish because my papa Manasse came from Sweden …..


Fiete and Snezana will have a Hungarian Christmas together with Auntie Zora.

Boldog Karácsonyt!


I’m sure the keepers and the visitors in the Rostock Zoo are very happy having polar bears again. Akiak, Noria and Sizzel make a wonderful trio and I wish them all ‘Frohe Weihnachten’! In the card you can see the two girls.


Lovely Tonja has become a mother again so she and her cubbie will be spending the Christmas in their warm den. I wish them both all the best!

Of course, I haven’t forgotten Lynn and her cubbie in Copenhagen so I wish my white friends in Dronningens By en gladelig jul.


Papa Wolodja is staying in the Berlin Zoo but I’m sure he knows something special has happened in the Tierpark. I’m glad to see he has got a Christmas tree!


Lady Katjuscha in Berlin must be everybody’s favourite! My mama told me she’s already 34 years old but this old girl is still going strong. I wish her a happy and peaceful Christmas!


I’m sad knowing Rostik has been moved to China. However, I hope he has a nice enclosure and loving keepers there. I wish him and his parent Gerda and Kai in Novosibirsk a happy Christmas time.


There are so many gorgeous polar bear friends all over the world – in the wild and in the zoos. I can’t mention them all here but I sincerely wish each and everybear a very happy and merry Christmas.

Christmas is even time for nostalgie so let’s not forget our friends that no longer are with us!


Here in Finland we all have a white Christmas this year! Hopefully many of you can admire dancing snow flakes, too.


People usually eat too much during the holidays so I recommend you all not to forget exercises out in the fresh air! You never know whom you will meet in the forest!!


Exercises are important but it’s also very important  to relax!

I wish all the readers and reporters of Knuti’s Weekly Magazine a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Yours bearily, Sisu – and his assistent Mervi

  1. Dear Sisu,
    Fantastic Christmas page!
    Thank you and your Assistant sooo much!!!

    We wish you, all your friends and the readers of KWM,
    and, of course, your Dear Assistant Mervi a Very Beautiful and Happy Christmas time!

    Nora & Ranzo from Vienna,
    Aron with his parents Friida and Nord,
    Evi from Tallinn

  2. TEERVE!

    Dear SISU – Even if you cannot mention each and every polar bear in the world, you did a more than goodjob in thinking of so many! . . Your helpful auntie and godmother MERVI seems to be full of love which can also be seen in the cards she created according to your wishes – one more beautiful and tender than the next one. Even it’s near to insolent to pick one of this pieces of art in order to bring it even more out, I dare it. I have to admit that I love the one a lot, let’s say most, wheer you are to be seen with your ‘SECOND ME’. . . QUINTANA looks lovable indeed – seems you are still in love with her – huh? . . . I was really touched that you even thought of (poor or happy – that’s the question!?) ROSTIK – I do also think of him and hope that he has it more good in his new home than we all are afraid of.

    Take my big KNUTi-hug while I am wishing you most lovely winter days and a happy and frolic ‘Rutsch’ one week after Christmas.

  3. Dear Sisu, thank you for helping Auntie Mervi or was t vice versa, but nevertheless you have made a wonderful Xmas page with all the wishes and nice souvenirs. From the bottom of my heart, I wish all polar bears (whether living in a zoo or in the wild) a safe and healthy Xmas and for all the humans, peace on earth.

  4. Liebe Mervi,

    vielen Dank für die weihnachtlichen Grüße von allen Bären, die wir kennen und lieben.
    Schöne Collagen hast du gestaltet und auch ich wünsche SISU eine wundervolle
    weiße Weihnacht.

    Liebe Grüße

  5. Liebe Mervi, lieber Sisu!

    Danke für diese berührenden Weihnachtsgrüße, die Collagen sind wunderschön.

    Wir wünschen allen bei Knutisweekly ein frohes und friedliches Weihnachtsfest und alles Gute fürs neue Jahr! Liebe Grüße an all unsere geliebten Tiere und dass es ihnen allen gut gehen möge!

    Liebe Grüße aus Innsbruck, Erika, Peter und Denise

  6. Dear Mervi and Sisu!
    Thank you for the greetings to Christmas! I can understand, that Sisu is excited about Quintana, she is a very good looking girl.
    I hope all bears will have a very happy Christmas.

  7. Dear Mervi and Sisu!
    Thank you for these beautiful Christmas greetings.
    The collages are fabulous and bring everybody into the right mood.
    There are many polar bears we´re thinking of in this special season. Hopefully they all are doing fine and able to enjoy the pleasures of wintertime, which means a winter with ice and snow!

    I wish all readers of KWM a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year 2019!


  8. Liebe Mervi, lieber Sisu,

    da habt Ihr beide ja eine wundervolle Seite mit Weihnachtswünschen von all unseren weißen Freunden gestaltet. Vielen Dank.
    Und Mervi hat wieder sehr schöne Collagen gebastelt, die all unsere Eisbären noch schöner aussehen lassen.
    Katjuscha sieht wunderbar aus mit der Weihnachtsmütze.

    Die Eisbären in Ranua und Orsa sind wahrscheinlich die einzigsten Bären, die schönes Winterwetter mit Schnee haben. Bei uns ist eher Schmuddelwetter angesagt.

    Auch ich wünsche Mervi und Vesa, sowie alle Freunde von KWM schöne, friedvolle und gesunde Weihnachten.

    Liebe Grüße
