Text on reverse of each card: Holiday Sheaf ("Snop"). The tradition of a fir tree at Christmas was imported into Russia from the West rather recently. An older tradition was to bring into the home a sheaf of grain (in Russian, snop), either the first or last sheaf harvested during the previous growing season. It was decorated with ribbons and placed in the icon corner during winter solstice holidays. Later, grain from that snop was mixed into the seeds for the next year’s crop.
