Why Russian Santa is the happiest in the world
Called Ded Moroz (Father Frost), Russian Santa, undoubtedly, is the happiest in the world. And in particular, he is happier than Western Santa. Why? In my opinion, the main difference between him and any Western Santa Claus – he is not alone. Indeed, this is so cool, as he has a beautiful young girl named Snegurochka, or Snow maiden. According to belief, she is his granddaughter. However, nobody knows anything about her parents, and there is no evidence she is his granddaughter. The fact is – she is just a beautiful girl who accompanies him everywhere. And this is a clue why he is endlessly happy.
Besides, Russian Father Frost doesn’t have to crawl through the dirty chimney, like a thief, to enter a house! Ded Moroz in Russia enters houses quite legally with his beautiful girl. Warmly welcomed in every house. And sometimes even too warmly.
In particular, there is a tradition to treat Russian Ded Moroz with a glass of vodka and delicious food, in every house. So, the fabulous couple visits lots of houses per day… Imagine how our Father Frost looks and feels at the end of the day. And what about children, who are impatiently waiting for the meeting with Father Frost and Snegurochka? All they need to do to get a Christmas present – to tell a poem or sing a song, or just tell how well they behaved.
