Herer is some information on the New Years traditions here in Russia….. Dee has written it so well that there is no point in me trying to.
Father Frost is a little like Father Christmas. He customarily appears with his granddaughter, a snow maiden called Snegurochka, and together they travel in a Russian troika, drawn by three horses, usually carrying an evergreen tree and presents. Father Frost is thought to have been a woodsman from northern Russia. During the late 1990s the village of Viliky Ustyug, in the Vologodskaya Region about 1,000 km north east of Moscow, was declared Father Frosts official home and today you can visit the region to see the log house home of Father Frost.
