A wonderful little video from a Mexican living in Moscow!
A beautiful video tour around New Year 2019 Moscow with Russian/Ukrainian girl. In Russian only, but images are spectacular and each is worth a 1000 words!
Christmas – New Year Moscow looks a million times (not joking) better than any world capital during the big holiday season! Sooooo worth visiting. In fact, Moscow has now become THE world’s No.1 Christmas – New Year destination!
BTW, have you ever tried the famous Moscow ice cream? Nothing compares to its delicious quality, take it from a non-ice cream fan, who tried it once at 5 and loved it ever since! Putin once brought a whole big box of the classic Moscow ice cream as a present for the Chinese leader Xi Jinping, who fell in love with it during his Moscow visit. Moscow ice cream is so loved that people line up to buy it despite the winter cold, as shown on this video.
The video showcases the most beautifully decorated Moscow squares, GUM and more:
St Petersburg is Russia’s cultural capital and a gorgeous imperial city of Russia in any season, any weather! Enjoy this splendid Christmas /New Year 2019 footage!
NOTE! I don’t like the word ‘nationalist’ in the title, no idea how it’s exactly nationalist, in the video author’s view. That said, this video is very lovely, made by a Brit or American.
Live video from New Year Eve 2019 open air celebrations on Poklonnaya Gora, Moscow, Russia. Enjoy!
Russian Christmas is traditionally celebrated on January 7 and the Christmas Eve is January 6, due to the difference between the so-called ‘Gregorian’ vs. ‘Julian’ Calendars.
On January 13-14 Russians also love to celebrate ‘The Old New Year,’ a cute family and friends gathering tradition to commemorate the nostalgic ‘old calendar’ which was replaced with the Gregorian Calendar by Lenin in 1918. So, even though Russia lives by internationally accepted today Gregorian Calendar, Christmas continues being celebrated according to traditional Russian Church (Julian) calendar.
FORBIDDEN HISTORY & LINGUISTICS:
But did you know that that the supposedly ‘Latin’ word calendar is a lot more ancient than its Latinized version. Did you know that it’s actually a RUSSIAN word? It comes from two Russian word roots: kolo + dar. And you won’t believe how many other words in many different languages come from the same roots! What do these roots mean and how it all happened? The story is fascinating!
A lot is revealed in our FORBIDDEN HISTORY & FORGOTTEN ORIGINS Webinars! And I hope we talk more in 2019!
Happy Russian Christmas!

Every year between March 6 and 9, Russia turns into a huge and fragrant flower market. It smells like spring everywhere, even if the stubborn snow has neglected to melt just yet.
Remember my previous post: Happy March 8! Russian policeman stops vehicles to sing a love song to women drivers.
In that case it wasn’t an actual cop but Russian singer Yaroslav Sumishevsky, with his song. However, real policemen aren’t far behind. This is happening today in Kaliningrad, Russia. Actual traffic policemen stop women drivers to present them with flowers and March 8 gifts:
