Today is Russian Old New Year and I'm a faithful follower of all the feasts of all religions, it's the last day of the New Year feasts for me. Tomorrow the tree will go in it's box till next year.
I'm not very happy because I don't like that the tree has to lieve me. The good side is that it's a plastic tree. I don't like to "kill" alive trees in the last years and am content that I bought this one. I understand those persons that say the alive tree has it's special perfume and is an other thing to have it in the house. Yes, you are right, but after some days of the pleasure you will throw this dead body. What do you think when you throw it?
Why "Old New Year" you ask me? It's historial fact. Sincerely I thought it comes from pagan or old-orthodox (or maybe paleo-orthodox?) church. But it is "normal" orthodox calendar, that uses till today the Julian calendar. Finally I learned it. :-)))
Well, to wish you a good year and all the best I want to post here some photos of the Russian, Siberian and Nordic (Archangelsk) Snow. To make you dream and envy. ;-)
