Winter has come! Snow has fallen down! It has covered the ground and trees!
If you look carefully, you can see separate snowflakes.
But they are not snowflakes at all, they are small bears!
The boys are called Snezhiks (Snow boy-flakes) and the girls are Snezhinkas (Snow girl-flakes)!
They have very many important things to do.
They need to feed the birds which have come for winter.
They need to check the strength of ice at the skating rinks.
They need to catch the most beautiful Snowflakes.
They need to test your sledges to check their strength.
They need to make a snowman, to please people coming out in the morning.
What was your idea about who makes snowman at night?
Frankly speaking, there are such snowflakes, which care only about own appearance.
But it is pleasant for us to look at some particularly beautiful snowflakes.
