Happy New Year Again: The Old Russian New Year…

Once again in Russia we are having the second New Year! It falls on January 14 according to the old Orthodox calendar…

This “Old New Year” is celebrated also in Moldavia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Georgia, and also in Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Greece…

Fireworks and lots of booze for the hundredth time this year and we have just started the year. One thing that I have learned, Russians know how to bring in the New Year. The only problem is that January is virtually a wasted month for productivity…

So enjoy the “Old Russian New Year!”
