BEAUTY & SWEETNESS Personified! More Spectacular Russian Christmas/New Year 2018-19 Videos!

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:

Christmas and New Year 2019: The Splendor of Royal Saint Petersburg

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.

 

С Рождеством! Happy Orthodox Christmas: Spectacular Russian Christmas in Facts & Pics!

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!

С Рождеством!

新年快乐 / 新年快樂 (Xīnnián kuàilè)

For Russians the biggest annual holiday is the New Year. I have done big posts for previous New Years, where I gave recommendations for various New Year’s films, posted holiday music, beautiful images and videos, as well as gave the history and lore of the Winter Holidays. In the end of this post you’ll see the links to my past articles. This time, on the light holiday note I want to share with you some of Russian New Year / Christmas pics and traditions.

So you know, in Russia that well-known magical guy who gives out presents is called ‘Ded Moroz’ (Grandfather Frost). He is the equivalent of the Western Santa, but per Russians, he definitely, no question about it, resides in the ancient town of Veliky Ustyug, in northern Russia.

Here’s Putin, together with Ded Moroz at his official residence in Veliky Ustyug ~

Putin at Ded Moroz's home, Ustiug, Russia

Ded Moroz doesn’t come for Christmas, as in the West. He comes for New Year’s, which is (if I may say so myself) the right way of doing things. 😉

Why? You probably know by now that in fact the figure of Ded Moroz / Santa Claus / San Nickolas is a pagan spirit, or god, of winter. At one point it was absorbed by Western Christianity so that to entice more people to convert. Russian Orthodox Christians, shall we say, were a bit more honest about it.

Regardless of what he’s called and when he comes, we all love and welcome him, along with his companion, who in Russia is his beautiful granddaughter, Snegurochka (snow maiden). Snegurochka is certainly also an original Vedic nature goddess character.

As seen on top pic, Russian Ded Moroz brings his gifts normally in a sleigh pulled by three horses, not by reindeer.

This is the northern Russian version of Ded Moroz, straight out of ancient legends — the true Vedic God of Winter. Look at his outfit (remember my Forbidden History articles on FuturisTrendcast?) Read the rest of this entry

Why Russians celebrate the New Year, and not Christmas, with New Year’s Tree? The Origin of ‘Calendar’ and Christmas/New Year’s Forbidden History

ny-moscow-red-square

Why Russians celebrate the New Year, and not Christmas, with New Year’s Tree? 

That’s because the tradition of celebrating the end of one year and the beginning of the next with a decorated and lit up green tree, symbolizing the new growth and new prosperity is a pagan tradition that by far predates Christianity. Much later it was adopted by Christianity to coincide with the designated birth of Christ – Dec. 25. In fact the Western Christmas continues symbolizing death and rebirth. The year’s shortest day is around this time of year, during Dec 22 Winter Equinox. After this the day again begins getting longer, thus denoting rebirth of the new year and new hope. The tradition itself predates any cultures and any religion known today – it was born in the days when humans were still united.

The proper Russian Orthodox Christian Christmas (Rus: Рождество, OR full name: Рождество Христово Rozhdestvo Khristovo) is celebrated one week after New Year’s, on January 6-7. The tradition for that holiday is to eat ‘sviata vecherya, ‘ aka, the Sacred Supper (Holy Supper) thus repeating with your friends and family the last supper of Jesus. This is often hosted by local churches, or is eaten at home. After that, the Vsenoshchnaya (Rus: Bсенощная) – All Night Vigil – in the church lasts through the night. Krestniy Hod is usually at midnight, during which everyone together walks around the church, the block, and/or an area of a city with candles, icons and church banners, while singing Russian church songs. This tradition goes very deep in history, back to the ancient Vedic/pagan times as well. It is a combined blessing and space clearing of one’s land, ushering in the light and positive affirmation for all present.

Krestniy Hod is also performed for the Russian Easter (Rus: Paskha). I’ve gone to a couple of these in Manhattan in the ’90s, and it was pretty cool. Police had stopped the traffic in the part of the upper East Side around the 92-93 Street, to allow the Krestniy Hod through.

And of course, the traditional Russian ice water bathing – Rus: Rozhdestvenskie Kupania! Should never forget about that! Extremely cold, but you really do feel like you’ve been reborn – if you can stomach it! I have a pic of the Russian ice water bathing in my classic post: How Russians Celebrate New Year: Happy NY 2014 and Happy 100,000 Visits to Lada Ray Blog!

There is also what is called ‘the Old New Year,’ still celebrated by many two weeks after traditional New Year, on Jan. 14-15 of the contemporary calendar. Why is that? What is now called the ‘Old New Year’ was the actual New Year’s in pre-1917 Revolution Russia.

ny-red-square

The Origin of ‘Calendar’

& Christmas/New Year’s FORBIDDEN HISTORY!

What is now called the ‘Old New Year’ was the actual New Year’s date according to the old Julian Calendar, where leap year wasn’t taken into account. Lenin changed that in 1918 to coincide with the new Western calendar (Gregorian Calendar). Initially, the original Russian Vedic Calendar was thrown out and substituted for the Western one by Peter the Great, counting years from the birth of Christ.

However, in doing so, much of history was distorted and silenced. Now, the truth is being re-discovered. In reality, the true ancient Russian calendar (actually, the calendar shared by all Slavic cultures) was over 7,500 years old. More precisely, today would be the Year 7523, and the year 2016 would be the Year 7524 ‘Ot Sotvorenia Mira’ (Eng translation: from “the Creation of Peace” – which is most of the time incorrectly interpreted to mean from “the Creation of the World, ‘world’ and ‘peace’ sounding very similar).

In reality, that still wasn’t the beginning of the Rus/Slavic culture. Rather, in that calendar Year One was counted from the Peace Treaty with the Dragon. Some interpret it to mean China, but I have a different, much more esoteric theory – one day I’ll share it.

Next, to fit into the new shortened calendar, the history of Russia and other Slavic lands was deliberately shortened and falsified to make it seem less significant and subordinate to other cultures. In reality, the truth appears to be this: over 1000 years ago at least all of Europe, and probably a large part of all of Eurasia, lived by the same old Slavic calendar. The exact date is hard to pinpoint, but roughly we can assume that the year 1000 was some sort of major threshold, another one being 2000 years ago.

The reason the new Western calendar became prevalent has to do with the previous tectonic Earth Shift of this human civilization towards the West: individual, yang, aggressive, assertive, outgoing. In more mundane terms it manifested in the power struggle between various individualistic national identities and separatist overlords’ interests. In religious terms, it was the power struggle between the Vedic/pagan system and the new organized religions. At the same time it was the fight between younger Catholic Vatican and older Orthodox Byzantium, as well as between Christianity and Islam, in which the Vatican and Catholicism won. No surprise there: the Vatican represented the West, which was beginning to gain dominance at the time.

The word Calendar itself is an ancient Rus/Slavic word, not Latin, as many think.

It comes from: Colo-dar – orig. spelling: Kolo-dar. Kolo means ‘circle’ and ‘sun.’ Dar is ancient Rus (used as is to this day) for ‘gift’ and ‘blessing.’ Therefore: Kolo-dar (colo-dar) means the gift of the sun. Alternatively: gift of the circle of the year. This in turn means: the gift, or blessing, of the ever revolving circle of seasons and karma.

How Latin language came to be and where it really came from is a whole different and fascinating mystery altogether. But that’s another story, which I might tell one day.

For now, let’s see how Kolo-dar became Calen-dar. Anyone who studied Latin knows that in it ‘K’ becomes ‘C.’ For example: Kelt becomes Celt. So, the original Kolo became Colo and later was distorted to Cale. Calen = of Cale – this added ‘n’ is also of Rus origin, signifying ‘part of’ or ‘from.’ For example: contemporary Russian word: Kalendar-n-y = part of the calendar, from the calendar.

The contemporary word that shows the evolution of kolo-colo-cale is: ‘calle’ – the word for ‘street’ in Spanish (very similarly sounding words exist in other Romanic languages). A street in the old days, before pavement, was made by constant movement of carriages along a dirt path. Carriages used wheels, or kolo = colo, modified in time to cale. It later became calle. 

P.S. In contemporary Russian the word for ‘wheel’ is ‘koleso’: kole-so. The word for a track made by a wheel of a car or carriage is: ‘kole-ya.’ Both, because of the traditional Russian ‘a’ transference in cases of written ‘o,’ are pronounced as ‘kaleso’ and ‘kaleya.’ This is in direct correspondence with cale-calle.

Incidentally, the word ‘alley’ once upon a time made a full turnaround and re-entered – was re-borrowed by – a number of languages from French. In Russian it sounds like ‘alleya.’ But you will easily recognize it as originally descending from the same primary word: kolo – koleya (a track made by a wheel).

This is just a small sampler – several books could be easily filled with such examples. More to come!
