Midnight Dec 31, 2007 – sometime in the morning Jan 1, 2008Midnight marks Novy God and the visit by Ded Moroz (Grandfather Frost) to the good little Russians (he skipped Pig this year). Yes, this is when we have our big celebration of the year, like Christmas but less depressing and stressful, and more fun and entertaining. Acutally, it marks the beginning of the holiday season, which is a little hard to practice in the US of A…our household still has old Christmas (Jan 7) and old New Year (Jan 13th) to go. If we were in Russia, this would be two weeks of partying….but alas, registration for the new school quarter was Jan 2nd.
The midnight greeting from Mr. Putin at the Kremlin.
Sovietsky Champagne is actually quite very good in my opinion.
My beautiful hachipurris.
It’s a red star yulka!
