Ded Moroz, Father Frost & Snegurochka, Snow Maiden. Ded Moroz is much more than a Slavic Santa Claus – he is a mighty magician. Whatever touches the tip of his magic wand immediately turns into ice! His granddaughter Snegurochka, born of snow, is a real ice princess. She accompanies her grandfather, announces him, moderates and most of all, eases his temper. While in the old days her grandfather’s magic wand quite frequently landed on naughty kids, he mainly uses it nowadays to freeze rivers or whirl blizzards across the land, since the comfort of central heating made society treat him kinder. Today, when they visit the kids on the 1st of January, a simple poem or a convincingly sung song might just be enough to get a present!
Happy new year everyone!
