I'm New Year girl. I'm always waiting for New Year's Night to come. It's magical and wonderful. That's not Santa, this is Russian Ded Moroz. Some say it's the same, but it's not. He drives troika (three -horse drawn sled , not reindeer in sight) and wears robes. He comes at New Year's Night bringing presents. Kids are allowed to stay up until midnight when all gather for a New Year's Night feast. People reflect on the past year, make wishes for a happy new year and make toasts (lots of them!). Here are real New Year cards I got from my friend. Thanks!
