С новым годом! Happy New Year! Ded Moroz and Snegurochka is a legendary figure similar to Santa Claus. The tradition of Ded Moroz is mostly spread in East Slavic countries and is an important part of Russian culture. The literal translation of Ded Moroz is Grandfather Frost.
Snegurochka “Snow Maiden” is a character in Russian fairy tales. This character made its first appearance in Russian folklore in the 19th century. Ded Moroz is accompanied by Snegurochka, his granddaughter and helper, who wears a snowflake-like crown. She is a unique attribute of Ded Moroz, since similar characters in other cultures do not have a female companion.
