2015 - Happy New Year From Siberia!

Happy New Year 2015 with Russian Ornament.
Happy New Year From Siberia!  
In Russia, New Year's Eve to New Year's Day is THE big holiday of the year.  Since Soviet times, Russians decorate a New Year's tree (or in many cases, a branch) and Дед Мороз (Grandfather Frost) brings presents to children New Year's Eve.  New Year's dinner is eaten near midnight - and it is a feast comparable to America's Thanksgiving dinner, but with traditional Russian New Year's dishes.  Fireworks start in earnest at midnight and are still going as the hands on the clock reach 7 or 8 AM, although with less intensity and frequency.  All night you can hear people singing, laughing, and talking as they walk down the streets.  Quiet begins to settle only in the morning when folks fall exhausted into beds or couches.  

It's probably been ten years since we stayed up all night with our friends.  Kids and age have changed how we meet the New Year.  But we do congratulate each other at midnight.  

It is 2015 in Novosibirsk.  As we say in Russian, We congratulate you with the new year! 

С новым годом!!!

Happy New Year.
