For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, the Russian New Year is celebrated every year from the 31st of December, until the 8th of January. It is a special time of the year when tradition meets modern times and the family gets together for a good time and – in a very Russian way – a lot of great food!

But what makes it so unique?

Well, of course, every country has their own special Christmas and New Year’s traditions, but in Russia, this holiday is considered to be the most important time of the year. People get together and there are tangerines at every table, decorations on the trees, gifts, festive salutes, Russian “banya”, snowballs, champagne, and a striking clock, of course!

Moscow’s New Year’s market

The biggest one of them all is probably waiting until 11.55 pm local time to hear the President’s speech on television. Everyone gathers around the tv to hear their President talk about the year that’s ending, the goals and strategies for the year that is to come and to congratulate everyone for a new year that is starting. Then, at midnight, the Kremlin clock strikes and Russian hymn will start playing, marking the beginning of a new year, while people congratulate each other, exchanging gifts and making wishes for the year! After that, people will just party all night and there will be fireworks in every city!
