Christmas Special: Russian Christmas and New Year Royal Style
Christmas Special: Russian Christmas and New Year Royal Style
Tue, 28 Dec 7:00 PM - Russia
Ho-ho-ho! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Saint Petersburg! Join me for my festive tour around the Palace Square not only to see the huge Christmas tree and gorgeous illuminations but to learn what it was like to celebrate the holidays royal style because in the heart of the square stands the Winter Palace, the official residence of the Romanov dynasty. We’ll learn how the monarchs celebrated the holidays over the centuries, what customs and traditions they had. We’ll talk about why the New Year celebration is a lot more important for Russians than Christmas. I will explain why Russians celebrate Christmas after the New Year, on January, 7, and tell you about how the holiday traditions have evolved. So, come on join me - it’s a one-off thing not fo be missed!
