Interstitial 16: Snegurka

In some Slavic countries, the New Year is celebrated with Ded Moroz (Old Man Frost) and his granddaughter Snegurka (Snow Maiden). The tradition of Christmas was banned in Soviet Russia, but celebrating the New Year was allowed in 1935.

From what I can tell, it was at this time the two mythical characters teamed up and Snegurka became granddaughter to Ded Moroz, joining him to help deliver presents to children.

Pictured is my daughter and her adorable bunny, Joey Smokes.
