The Russians celebrate Christmas on the night of January 6th and 7th. In Russia, Santa Claus is called Father Frost.He is the hero of many Russian tales. Some think he is directly related to the God of the North Wind himself, who inspired the very first pagan Slavic generations.
Father Frost is the Christmas King. He always keeps an eye on the mountains, the forests, the villages and all their inhabitants, and he also has the heavy duty to take care of the snow, the cold, the frost and the wind during the eternal months of winter. He brings comfort and guides anyone who has to suffer from the cold.
Father Frost is a giving and elderly man. His ending is close which makes him eager to share his story and his long life wisdom (Often embodied by his hood or the bag he carries along) with all these kids around him, waiting for him. He is a wise man, kind and reassuring.
Every Father Frost / Santa Claus are made out of linden wood. Entirely handcrafted, from sculpting to painting. All of them are original creation from Russian artist : Elena, Sergueï, Sacha, Elvira, Tania, Natalia, Olga, Lioudmila, Irina, Nina, Igor, Vassily, Larissa, Volodia, who all wish you a warm merry Christmas.
