Today's decoration is very neat and packs away into itself for it is a Russian doll nativity set. Baby Jesus fits inside a donkey, who fits inside an angel, who fits inside Mary, who fits inside Joseph, who fits in the doll which shows all three kings.
And as an extra for today may I introduce Father Frost? He's a sort of Russian version of Santa and my late sister brought him back from St Petersburg for me. Morozko's garments are always decorated with geometric patterns and his tunic is down to his feet. His hat is always red and he wears mittens. He carries a pikestaff.
