- Hello, children, I am very tired and exhausted as I had a very long way before I got to your lyceum.
Hello, Ded Moroz. Did you misunderstand anything? I believe it is very early, it is only November!
I did not misunderstand anything. Children invited me to your lyceum. Look! Here is the letter I got recently.
Ded Moroz is reading a letter
Dear Ded Moroz!
We invite you to a party which will take place in a hall of our lyceum 28 on the 18ht of November. Welcome!
Well, I believe children made fun of me.
Not at all. Come here Ded Moroz, take your sit. We just wanted to tell children that today is a special day. And we can’t do without Ded Moroz today. Do you know what a holiday it is today?
Today is Ded Moroz’s birthday. We prepared some tasty things for you and we want to show you our knowledge and skills to work as a present .
By the way children do you know how Ded Moroz is called in different countries?
Where does he live? How is he connected with new year and where does he take presents for children? If not, let’s have a talk about it.
So what kind of holiday is New Year?
Pupil 1. Many years ago New Year in Russia was celebrated on the 1st of September. You know that now it’s the first day when children go to school and it’s also the beginning of autumn. So where did the holiday come from? It was Peter the Great who ordered to celebrate the New Year on the first of January as the rest Christian world. The first New Year was celebrated on the 1st of January in 1700 in Moscow at the Red Square with parade and fireworks.
Pupil 2. There are a lot of customs and traditions of this holiday. Do you know any?
- to decorate the house
- to put the New Year Tree
- to cook delicious food
- to give presents to each other
- to listen to our president’s congratulations
- to watch fireworks etc.
Pupil 1. Yes, good for you. But do you know that the first public New Year Tree was put in St. Petersburg. Before that time Russian people only decorated their homes with brunches. The tradition to decorate homes with a New Year Tree was originated in Germany and is connected with the name of Martin Luther. He himself decorated his home with a New Year Tree with gifts and candles. This tree was a symbol of life as its leaves never fall down and remain green all the year round. By the middle of the 19th century homes were only decorated with New Year Trees.
Pupil 3. Ded Moroz is accompanied by Snegurochka his granddaughter and helper who wears long silver-blue robes and furry cap or snowflake-like crown. She is a unique attribute of Ded Moroz since similar characters in other cultures don’t have a female companion.
Pupil 4. (Father Frost) 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 ("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 Region.
Pupil 5. Ded Moroz is very popular in modern Russia. In 1998, the town of in Veliky Ustyug Vologda Region, Russia was declared the home of the Russian Ded Moroz by Yury Luzhkov, then Mayor of Moscow. Between 2003 and 2010, the post office in Veliky Ustyug received approximately 2,000,000 letters from within Russia and from all over the world for Ded Moroz. On January 7, 2008, then President Putin of the Russian Federation visited Ded Moroz' residence in the town of Veliky Ustyug as part of the Russian Orthodox Christmas Eve celebration.
Pupil 6. The western Santa Claus made inroads in the Russian Federation during the "turbulent" 1990s when Western culture increased its penetration into the post-Soviet Russia. The resurgence of Russia in the early 21st century brought about a renewed emphasis on the basic Slavic character of Ded Moroz. This included the Russian Federation and subordinate governments sponsoring courses about Ded Moroz every December, with the aim of establishing appropriate Slavic norms for Ded Moroz and Snegurochka roles for the New Year holiday. People playing Ded Moroz and Snegurochka now typically make appearances at children's parties during the winter holiday season, distributing presents and fighting off the wicked witch, Baba Yaga, who children are told wants to steal the gifts.
Pupil 7. Santa Claus, Saint Nicholas, Saint Nick, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle, Santy, or simply Santa is a mythical figure with historical origins who, in many Western cultures, brings gifts to the homes of well-behaved, "good" children on Christmas Eve (24 December) and the early morning hours of Christmas Day (25 December). The modern Santa Claus is derived from the British figure of Father Christmas, the Dutch figure of Sinterklaas, and Saint Nicholas, the historical Greek bishop and gift-giver of Myra. During the Christianization of Germanic Europe, this figure may also have absorbed elements of the god Odin, who was associated with the Germanic pagan midwinter event of Yule and led the Wild Hunt, a ghostly procession through the sky.
Pupil 8. Santa Claus is generally depicted as a portly, joyous, white-bearded man—sometimes with spectacles—wearing a red coat with white collar and cuffs, white-cuffed red trousers, and black leather belt and boots and who carries a bag full of gifts for children. Images of him rarely have a beard with no moustache. This image became popular in the United States and Canada in the 19th century due to the significant influence of the 1823 poem "A Visit From St. Nicholas" and of caricaturist and political cartoonist Thomas Nast. This image has been maintained and reinforced through song, radio, television, children's books and films.
Santa Claus is believed to make lists of children throughout the world, categorizing them according to their behavior ("naughty" or "nice") and to deliver presents, including toys, and candy to all of the well-behaved children in the world, and sometimes coal to the naughty children, on the single night of Christmas Eve. He accomplishes this feat with the aid of the elves who make the toys in the workshop and the flying reindeer who pull his sleigh. He is commonly portrayed as living at the North Pole and saying "ho ho ho" often.
Pupil 9. The tradition of Santa Claus entering dwellings through the chimney is shared by many European seasonal gift-givers. In pre-Christian Norse tradition, Odin would often enter through chimneys and fire holes on the solstice. In the Italian Befana tradition, the gift-giving witch is perpetually covered with soot from her trips down the chimneys of children's homes. In the tale of Saint Nicholas, the saint tossed coins through a window, and, in a later version of the tale, down a chimney when he finds the window locked. In Dutch artist Jan Steen's painting, The Feast of Saint Nicholas, adults and toddlers are glancing up a chimney with amazement on their faces while other children play with their toys. The hearth was held sacred in primitive belief as a source of beneficence, and popular belief had elves and fairies bringing gifts to the house through this portal. Santa's entrance into homes on Christmas Eve via the chimney was made part of American tradition through the poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas" where the author described him as an elf.
Pupil 3. In the United States and Canada, children traditionally leave Santa a glass of milk and a plate of cookies; in Britain and Australia, he is sometimes given sherry or beer, and mince pies instead. In Denmark, Norway and Sweden, it is common for children to leave him rice porridge with cinnamon sugar instead. In Ireland it is popular to give him Guinness or milk, along with Christmas pudding or mince pies.
New Zealander, British, Australian, Irish, Canadian, and American children also leave a carrot for Santa's reindeer, and were traditionally told that if they are not good all year round, that they will receive a lump of coal in their stockings, although this practice is now considered archaic. Children following the Dutch custom for sinterklaas will "put out their shoe" (leave hay and a carrot for his horse in a shoe before going to bed, sometimes weeks before the sinterklaas avond). The next morning they will find the hay and carrot replaced by a gift; often, this is a marzipan figurine. Naughty children were once told that they would be left a roe (a bundle of sticks) instead of sweets, but this practice has been discontinued.
Pupil 2. Santa Claus's home traditionally includes a residence and a workshop where he creates—often with the aid of elves or other supernatural beings—the gifts he delivers to good children at Christmas. Some stories and legends include a village, inhabited by his helpers, surrounding his home and shop.
Ded Moroz. Well, I see you know a lot about the New Year. I want to thank you. Let’s have some fun and play a bit. And of course I’ll give you some presents. Do you know any poems about New Year? Act out them to me, please.
