It always warms my heart to see a tip of the hat to Ded Moroz (short for Dedushka Moroz, translated: Grandfather Frost) and to see that the research has it pretty much on. I spoke for my wife (she was sick) at the school where she works when she was scheduled to do the Ukrainian portion of "Christmas Around the World" for the 1st graders. I found that her research called him "Father Frost." Of course she and I both knew better, and made the correction during presentation. Must have found the blurb on Wikipedia. Merry Christmas!
