Happy New Year!

In Russia, New Year is the Holiday. It is celebrated by all the people, despite their national, religious, cultural or political affiliations. While in the U.S. New Year festivities are concentrated at Times Square, Russian celebration of the arrival of each new year is all encompassing and everlasting – it goes on for 6 days all the way to Russian Orthodox Christmas (more on this later). Russians look forward to New Year as much as Americans anticipate Christmas, and celebrate with as much joy and self-abandonment as Brazilians do their carnivals.
