Jack Frost is a compilation of tales, but the core tale of Father
Frost goes like this:

A woman had a stepdaughter and a daughter of her own, and she hated
her stepdaughter. One day, she ordered her husband to take her out
into the winter fields and leave her there, and he obeyed. Father
Frost found her there, and she was polite and kind to him, and he gave
her a chest full of beautiful things and fine garments. When her
stepmother sent her father to bring back her body to be buried, he
went, and the dog said that she was coming back beautiful and happy,
and despite the bribe of a pancake, went on saying it.

When the stepmother saw what her stepdaughter had brought back, she
ordered her husband to bring her own daughter out to the fields. The
girl was rude to Father Frost, and he froze her to death. When her
husband went out to bring her back, the dog said that she would be
buried, and despite the bribe of a pancake, repeated it. When he
brought back the body, the old woman wept.

Wow.

Stepmom had a soul colder than a witch's tit. Daddy would rather murder
his own daughter than resist the oppressive lure of a murderous wife's
psychosis.

A chest full of beautiful things? Who knew Father Frost could jumpstart
puberty?

The dog said it? Now we're venturing into Disney territory with talking
dogs and magical puberty and sneaky pancake bribery.

Lesson learned. Don't piss off the master of cold and ice.

It's very important to have talking dogs repeat things despite pancake
payoffs.
Dog: "Rhee rould re rurried. Rhee's riff as a roard!"

> brought back the body, the old woman wept.

And the ghost of Charles Darwin can snicker again at people who "Darwin"
their genes out of existence. Meanwhile, the surviving nice stepdaughter
has to live with amoral psychotic stepmom and a gutless dad who would let
his daughter freeze to death on the whims of some crazy bitch he married.
Oh well, that's what they make poison for. So the nice stepdaughter can
kill disgusting vermin like her parents and live happily ever after.
