    Suzi Snowflake.
    Google and listen to the song...

    Ok, come on into my world....

    You're a governor of a small colonial moon famed for it's 'Christmas village' year round tourist industry. You have some friends and family our to enjoy your promotion. You're about say grace, your home is fully decorated for Christmas, with a roaring fire, stockings, music...
    When someone notices an octagenarian woman in a lovely white fur coat dancing circle in your yard, singing...
    You have to explain that the culture here takes care of their elderly quite well, but have this odd tradition of Suzi SnowFlake.
    They take the year's female elderly and senile without families to care for them- mostly widows- and dress them warmly and drive them about town until they pick a home. (In a car, not like with whips through the deep snow banks...)
    That house, no matter where it is, has to offer the lady dinner and invite them into their home for the night. He had never heard of anyone ever refusing. These people are so great they don't even have a villain of someone that left the old lady out in the night.
    The next morning, the ladies are gathered up and taken back to their care facilities.
    Those who are chosen are said to be blessed with good fortune. Those homes then adopt that woman for the year and care for her. Quite often those ladies are completely adopted in and cared for in the family's home.
    They continue the festival at New Year's with the elderly men. Apparently, we've been blessed. Let's go join in.
    The entire time the old woman is dancing and singing in the back ground like that time NaNa ate from the wrong pan of brownies, but that's another story.
