Ded Moroz (Russian: Дед Мороз, Ded Moroz [dʲɛt mɐˈros]; Belarusian: Дзед Мароз, Dzyed Maróz; Ukrainian: Дід Мороз, Did Moróz; Russian diminutive Russian: Дедушка Мороз, Dédushka Moróz; Montenegrin: Đed Mraz (Ђед Мраз)) is a Slavic fictional character similar to that of Father Christmas. The literal translation is "Old Man Frost", often translated as "Grandfather Frost". Ded Moroz brings presents to children and often delivers them in person on New Year's Eve. Ded Moroz is accompanied by Snegurochka (Russian: Снегурочка, Snegurochka; Ukrainian: Снігуронька, Snihurónka; "Snow Maiden"), his granddaughter and helper, who wears long silver-blue robes and a furry cap or a snowflake-like crown. She is a unique attribute of Ded Moroz, since similar characters in other cultures don't have a female companion. Ded Moroz wears a heel-length fur coat, a semi-round fur hat, and valenki on his feet. He has a long white beard. He walks with a long magic staff and sometimes rides a troika. The residence of Ded Moroz in Russia is considered to be the town of Veliky Ustyug, Vologda Oblast. The residence of the Belarusian Dzyed Maroz is said to be in Belavezhskaya Pushcha.
