'The Weather Fairies' - Jack Frost <> 'The door was shut, as doors should be, Before you went to bed last night; Yet Jack Frost has got in, you see, And left your window silver white. He must have waited till you slept; And not a single word he spoke, But pencilled o’er the panes and crept Away again before you woke.] ~Gabriel Setoun 'Jack Frost' (magical, enchanting, Fairy Merry Christmas)
However, another Russian fairy-tale tells a story of an old man and woman who had always regretted that they did not have any children. In winter they made a girl out of snow. The snow maiden came alive and became the daughter they never had. They called her Snegurochka.
