A brief annotation
New Year is the kindest family holiday which has a long history. According to tradition a Christmas tree is set in the house and decorated with balls and figures of animals and people. A symbol of the New Year in Russia is Father Frost - a fantastic character who comes on the eve of the holiday and brings gifts to children, stockpiled in his bag.
