Russian Word of the Day: Посох-staff

November 29, 2012

So as we’ve been talking about the Russian Santa Claus, Дед Мороз, this week I thought I must point out one item of New Year paraphernilia that Дед Мороз never seems to leave the North Pole without: his посох.

As you’ll notice in all of these pictures he is always seen with some type of посох, or staff.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One article explains that you might see the staff с набалдашником или с звездой (with a knob or a star).

 

 

 

 

And there are many websites that teach you как сделать посох Деда Мороза ‘how to make the staff of Grandfather Frost”. Children will know you’re an imposter if you try and show up without one.
