Joe Keinberger has uncovered a little information regarding the mythology surrounding the Snow Goblin: "A lesser Frost Imp, or Snow Goblin. Charged with the task of freezing small ponds and streams in winter. Called "Little Frost" in parts of Europe, is known as a patron saint to lost pets, often leading them home through blinding snowstorms. Has been credited with changing pails of cream into ice cream, for sick children who leave them outside their doors on New Year's Day." Travels on the North Wind in his tiny ice cream cone, steering with his candy cane staff."
