13 January 2016. Tomorrow is the “Old” New Year!

00 To the Old New Year! Russia 130116

To the Old New Year!

______________________________

Tomorrow, 14 January, is the Old New Year. No, that’s not a contradiction in terms… it’s 1 January on the Julian Calendar. Therefore, for some Russians, it’s time for ROUND TWO of New Year’s celebrations! We’re in the midst of the Svyatki between Christmas and Epiphany (which is next Tuesday, 19 January). It’s a time to feast, feast, feast… and I, Tyotya Vara, will carve the roast beast!

Pass the jug and cheer… did you really need an excuse to do that?
