New Year is the most beloved and long-desired holiday for most Russians, and the traditions of its celebration are an integral part of the life of every child and adult.
In our country, the New Year holiday has been celebrated by the Gregorian calendar since January 1, 1700. The day began with folk festivals and amusements on Red Square in Moscow. To symbolize the national holiday, cannons were fired, fireworks were launched, and people had fun, sang songs, danced, congratulated each other and gave presents to the nearest and dearest. It was at that time that celebrating the arrival of New Year and making a wish with the chime of bells became a good tradition.
