I do not find a Snegurochka thread on ATU-II. Neutral

Usually translated as "Snow Maiden."

I hope that this year the Snegurochka thread will stay focussed on the Snegurochka of traditional Slavic folklore ...

... and that the thread will not be hi-jacked by the Snegurochka of shameless commercialism (as has happened in some previous years). bounce

I thought Snegurochka was celebrated on South Park or something.

What's "South Park?"

Something people watch that have those television machines, I suppose?

Some of those Snegurochka's look a bit saucy; I fear we might have just started down that slippery slope to Christmas decadence.

"There are many versions of the story, but most people agree that Snegurochka - the Snow Maiden - is the daughter of Father Christmas (or Father Frost in Russian) and Spring, and made out of snow. She lives a shielded existence, but when she discovers the outside world and is given the ability to love, she melts".

That red outfit shows the influence of western decadence:

But the absence of a red outfit is also a reflection of the corrupting influence of the West:

Last Christmas there was a rather long-in-the-tooth Snegurochka arrested at a political protest demonstration.

There was considerable outrage at the time that the police would arrest Snegurochka on Christmas:

Don't get me wrong--I'm not saying it was Snegurochka that done the deed--I'm just sayin' she's knows more than she's lettin' on. bounce Suspect

what if "The horrible death and resurrection of Codename: Mackadamia !" thread one day gets 665 replies and nobody seems to reply more... wouldn't you dare to be the one to turn it into 665+1 replies?

Temperatures going up to the 60s today--I'm afraid Snegurochka is not much longer for this world. Neutral
