Russian Holiday Decorations: A Sneak Peek into Our Apartment

December 3, 2011

Welcome to our apartment! As you can see, Galya and I have been getting ready for the holidays. While many Americans might take a look at these photos and think, “What lovely Christmas decorations!” an interesting fact to know is that these are not really Christmas decorations at all. These are Новый Год, or New Year’s, decorations! That Christmas tree you see is actually for Новый год, and is called a елка.
