Dear comrades! Dear friends!
Accept my warm and cordial greetings on the New Year’s holidays. For our people, they combine three events:
- Coming of the New Year
- Our own unique holiday… the Old New Year
We try to meet them with our loved ones around the holiday table. We wish each other health and joy; we raise our glasses to everything good and beautiful. We have seemingly utopian desires. For each of us, these days are full of fabulous, warm, and joyful things.
No matter how many winters and summers we’ve seen in this world, no matter if it’s a time of trial, every year, we look forward with hope for midnight on 1 January. With child-like expectation, we wait with excitement for a miracle. With adult contemplation, we soberly weigh everything that the New Year can bring into our daily lives. The upcoming year of 2017 bids fair to be a special time. It seems to have unusual and significant weight. All of us who cherish the ideals of peace and labour, liberty and justice, and equality and fraternity are preparing for it, for this year marks the centenary of the Great October Socialist Revolution. We’ll meet it with hope for the future, with conviction in the rightness of our cause. We’ll meet it in the name of our ancestors who fought for a decent life, who built the great Soviet state.
In the family circle, in the workplace, in the streets and squares… standing together, we’ll enter the coming year with the greetings and warm wishes of our loved ones, good friends, and acquaintances. Firstly, my wish for you is that 2017 brings you change for the better. I wish you good luck, health, and prosperity in the New Year!
