HaPPy Old New YEaR !!!

Today in Russia a great holiday! OLD NEW YEAR! A bit of history: By the early twentieth century Russia for 13 calendar days behind Europe, has long passed for the Gregorian calendar. To close this gap in 1918 was a transition to the Gregorian calendar - the "new style" and January 14 - the day of St. Basil was the old New Year.

So we celebrate the new year 2 times! I congratulate you on your old New Year! This Year necessarily bring you good luck!
