A lecture by Philipp Smirnov about New Year’s traditions will take place at the Gorchakov Fund
Is New Year a holiday? How old is the tradition of decorating a fir-tree? Where was the first children’s New Year’s party organized in Soviet Russia and can we visit that place? Where are the best toys made? Where does the tradition of serving Russian salad, Champaign and tangerines at the table come from? These and other questions will be answered during the pre-New Year’s lecture by Philipp Smirnov, editor-in-chief of Moscow Heritage, Deputy Chairman of the Commission for Culture and Cultural Heritage of the Public Chamber of the City of Moscow.
