Father Frost and Family

Some locals posing for photos between Father Frost (Дед Мороз, the thinner version of Santa Claus to celebrate the new years in Russian culture) and his grandaughter Snow Maiden (Снегурочка).

 

As far as I can tell, the sole purpose of "snow maiden" is to make the father frost tradition a little more babelicious.
