Christmas is Here in Seligor's Castle. Come on in and settle down to some wonderful Christmas Cheer
INVITES YOU TO SPEND CHRISTMAS WITH
HER IN THE
.LANTERNS IN THE
SNOWI love to watch the feet that go in
lantern light across the snow ;
For lit like
this one never sees, the wayfarer above the knees
And who can tell what folks may pass - St.
Nicholas, King Wenceslas -
With magic burdens
bending low above the lanterns in the Snow
FlemingOLD MOTHER FROST.
The woodcutter's prettiest daughter was lost.
She came to the country of old Mother Frost,
Who set her to scrub and to bake and to spin,
And keep house and garden as neat as a pin ;
And shake up the beds so that people might cry :
"Old Mother Frost's plucking geese in the sky !"
She did them so well that the dame in her glee
Said the woodcutter's daughter rewarded should be,
And when she returned to her kinfolk they found
She glistened with gold from her head to the ground.
The woodcutter's ugliest daughter was lost.
She came to the country of old Mother Frost.
But oh, she was lazy ! she tangled the thread,
She left the floors dirty, and burned all the bread.
The pillows grew lumpy, and saddest of all,
She shook them so badly no feathers would fall.
The old woman whipped her in spite of her age,
And when she got back to her kinfolk they found
She glistened with pitch from her head to the ground.
Where are you?
Man Winter, like the elfish creature Jack Frost, is
of winter, sometimes also called Father Winter. He
may be an
alternative older name for Father Christmas and has
with the Old English god Woden. In Russian
folklore, Old Man Winter is
known as Morozko and is also identified with Ded
Moroz, the Russian
Santa Claus. In English folklore, Jack Frost
appears as an elfish
creature who personifies crisp, cold, winter
weather; a variant of
Father Winter (also known as Old Man Winter).
Some believe this
representation originated in Germanic folklore
specifically in the
Anglo-Saxon and Norse winter customs. Tradition
holds Jack Frost
responsible for leaving frosty crystal patterns on
windows on cold
