According to the Yakut legend, the Great Bull of Winter Chyskhaan fell in love with Cholbon Kuo and followed her to the high endless sky. And the Earth calmed down in anticipation of a great miracle, birth of a new life and advent of the new year. However, as soon as the sun warmed the Earth, the first horn and then the second one fell from the Great Bull. Chyskhaan melted. And only the icy wind, flying past, whispered to beautiful Cholbon Kuo: " Sweetheart, see you next winter!" Then Cholbon Kuo turned into a bright morning star, the patroness of lovers (they call her the Maiden Star). Since then she has been waiting for him to return every year, and every time he returns to her in autumn.
Yakuts imagine a spirit of cold in the form of a semi-bull for a reason. Frozen bones and tusks of mammoths have been found in these places since old times. Previously, they were mistaken for the horns of a huge fairy bull. And since they were found more often in the spring, it was believed that the heat killed the bull. Therefore, the bull is a symbol of cold.
