The Snowmaiden

The Snow Maiden (Снегурочка) is a Russian fairy tale who is the grand daughter of Grandfather Frost (Ded). She figures in two folktales. The first, a nature myth, is set in the Kingdom of Tsar Berendai and tells the tale of how Fairy Spring and Mighty Winter try to protect their young daughter from the fatal glance of the Sun God. They hide her in a village where she falls in love with Lel, the shepherd boy. The second tale concerns a peasant couple who have no children. They build a maiden from out of snow and she miraculously comes to life. Eventually, after playing with the children in the village in the spring, she turns to mist, only to return once again when winter reappears.
