Hi! My name is Mendy and I’m five years old. I live in Siberia, an area in Russia. It’s FREEZING here! Every time I leave my house, I need to put on many layers of clothing.
Winter lasts more than half the year! But don’t feel bad for me. I love sledding down snowy hills and touring our special ice city where everything is built out of – you guessed it – ice! Most of all, I love preparing for the holiday of Chanukah when we warm up the frozen winter with our songs and our Chanukah lights.
Join Mendy as he takes you on an exciting journey through his daily life in Siberia.
