Russian Soviet New Year Card & Snegurochka

This Soviet New Year card is ©1980. It features Snegurochka, the Snowmaiden. Snegurochka is the granddaughter or helper of Ded Moroz (Father Frost), the Russian and Slavic character similar to Santa Claus. Ded Moroz delivers gifts on New Years Day.

On the back of this card is handwritten information about Soviet New Years cards:

This is a typical Soviet New Years card. There are many different styles, but each shop has only a few. When a shop with good cards opens - everyone, including me, lines up to capture a few of the beauties.
