Everyone called Father Frost and Snegurochka? I think everyone spent their childhood in anticipation of Father Frost, he brought gifts and very often went with Snegurochka. Let’s find out the truth about Father Frost and his granddaughter Snegurochka.
Father Frost is not a fantasy children’s character at all, but Nikola, who helped along the way. Since Nikola was responsible for good ways, then, of course, he was directly connected with the Seasons.
In Winter Nikola put on a fur coat and went with a staff to hand out gifts. The staff is a symbol of the earthly road, the connection between Heaven and Earth. His gifts were earthly, which a person could receive from the Earth. Winter is End Time of the stage. We are connected with nature, and if the cycle begins in Spring, then in Winter it ends. Winter is Death. Death bestows a lot on those who have spent the cycle of Life properly. We will talk about this later. So Nicola brought these gifts. People were waiting for his appearance in Winter. Later Nikola will become Nikolaos the Wonderworker and Father Frost.
Let’s find out more about Snegurochka. What kind of beauty walks with Father Frost?
The first part of Winter is the Time of Death, the second part of Winter is the Time of Transition. In the pre-spring Time we are preparing to be resurrected, reborn, renewed. So Snegurochka is a young Winter. Old woman Winter gives the reins to young Winter, and she prepares us for birth. Of course, these are energies, and their images are allegories, but for understanding the structure of the universe it is very important.
Let’s remember the names of Father Frost and Snegurochka. Why did you call them? To receive gifts. We will again, already in an adult way, thoughtfully, call them.
“Winter Nikola, come, we meet you, we magnify you with bread and salt. Give us blessings, for a living man is walking the Earth-Mother, honoring the Earth and Heaven, receiving blessings. Truly!”
Read it 9 times.
Light not a church candle, put white bread, preferably round, and put salt in the middle. You can leave bread at the table for three days, then bring it under the tree (preferably generic).
Now let’s talk about Snegurochka?
She’s worth remembering after the Winter Solstice.
“The young Diva walked around the courtyards, prepared people for the birth, remembered everyone. Young Diva, grant us Strength, grant us a healthy body that would like to Live. Truly!”
You can put milk on the table and light a non-church candle.
Knowing the origins of traditions and understanding the universe, we create a happy family and a strong Kin.
Wish you blessing!
