Personalised Christmas Gifts for Grandparents
Christmas Trivia – The Legend of Baboushka and Grandfather Frost
Grandparents are closely associated to Christmas in Russia. ‘Babouschka’ is the Russian equivalent of Santa Claus and the word literally means ‘Grandmother’. The legend of Babouschka tells the tale of a grandma who lived alone and worked hard to maintain a spotless house. One evening, three kings knocked at her door and requested a place to rest. The Three Wise Men told Babouschka of their journey to deliver presents to a newborn king in Bethlehem and they invited her to join them.
Although the Grandmother declined their offer, she later changed her mind. Babouschka has since been trying to follow their trail, armed with her own basket of gifts. Legend suggests she would leave presents for children as she visited houses to look for the special newborn baby. When children in Russia awake to find presents on Christmas morning, they are told that they have been visited by Babouschka. Russian children are also left gifts by Grandfather Frost – ‘Ded Moroz’ - on New Year’s Eve.
