Get to know the Old New Year holiday in Russia

Jan 10, 2017 Back to What's New

The Old New Year, or the Orthodox New Year is an informal traditional holiday, celebrated as the start of the New Year in Russia by the Julian calendar. It falls on Jan 14, 2017 in new calendar.

The Old New Year is a relaxed holiday when Russians celebrate as they please. Some see it as a nostalgic holiday and spend it at large family gatherings where they eat and sing carols. Others see it as simply another reason to go out and party with their friends and colleagues, especially if it falls during a weeknight. They often eat traditional holiday foods, like baked dumplings with small objects inside, a button or a thread. The diner who discovers the object is said to receive good fortune in the year ahead.

If you are communicating with someone from Russia, show your interest in getting to know their holiday and traditions. There are tricks to have their attention, for example, sing carols to them on Call Service, party with them on Live Chat & Cam Share, or send Happy New Year Gifts for a perfect impression.

The New Year has come. Just join the celebrations and let 2017 bring you lots of luck & love!
