New Years in Russia: Father Frost

(click to enlarge)
In Russia, Father Frost looms large this time of year. In an old Russian folktale, Father Frost showed mercy on an unfortunate unloved step-daughter left outside to die. He gave her warm clothes and jewels. When her wicked step-mother sent her own daughter outside hoping to get more jewels, Father Frost delivered swift punishment. Russian Winter is nothing to trifle with.

New Years is the biggest holiday in Russia and lasts for 10 days. Huge tree-like structures are decorated for New Years. A special New Years address is delivered by the president. Olivier salad is eaten and much champagne is consumed. Gifts of the new year's zodiac animal are exchanged. 2014 is The Year of the Horse. For my friends in Russia, С Новым Годом!

Brrr... Feel that chill in new skin by Fallen Gods, Draco Glacier, at the December round of We <3 Role play. I combined it with the frosty Breeze tattoo hunt prize from Madpea's Holiday Havoc. The cool Eldar Armor Regal armor by The Forge is also on sale at We <3 Role Play. Another fun event for Role Players is the 25L Holiday Bizarre. Many great items for only 25L including the Arcana outfit by The Fallen. I tinted it to match the color of the armor. The Skull Sword by TGW is fully scripted and also 25L. This cool headdress by GizzA is free at the Jewelry & Accessory Expo. Watch out for low hanging branches with this one. lol. And the White Walker eyes are a current gift By Snow.

While you are shopping at We <3 Role Play, don't forget to pick up the gifts and cheapies under the trees in the cabins. The 25L Holiday Bizarre also has many gifts under it's tree. Fun!
