A widowed old man lived alone with his daughter, Morozko. One day, the old man married a woman with a daughter of her own. One freezing winter day, the woman ordered the old man to take Morozko into the woods and leave her there. Father Frost felt sorry for Morozko and covered her with luxurious furs. The old man found Morozko wearing the furs, with a chest filled with gems. Overjoyed, he took Morozko and the treasures home to his wife, who sent him back with her own ugly daughter, expecting the same results. But the ugly daughter complained about how cold and uncomfortable she was, Father Frost did nothing to help her, and she froze to death in the snow.
