Russian New Year Crib Notes

I’ve been at quite a few holiday parties over the past couple weeks (ok, two. I just wanted to sound socialetist) and every single time (since the majority of the people at the parties have been American) have had to explain how I’m Jewish and celebrate Haunkkah but at the same time, New Year’s is the really big holiday for me.  I wish I could just show them this blog post from last year explaining the whole Russian New Year situation.  Maybe I can make business cards about it?

Although my tree is somewhere deep in Mr. B’s mom’s basement and my New Year plans are uncertain as we speak, I’m still indulging in the New Year spirit through Youtube and through this picture, which I can’t take credit for at all. .
