If you aren’t quite familiar with Russian holidays you might be surprised to know that people in Russia celebrate two New Years. The first one falls on January, 1 like in the rest of the world and the other one, called Old New Year, is observed on January, 14. The reason for that being that Orthodox Church is still using old Julian calendar. Even though Old New Year is quite an informal holiday joyous entertainment, fireworks, and big elaborate meals among other festivities are common on that day.
Help your dear family, friends and colleagues in Russia celebrate this nostalgic holiday ending the New Year holiday cycle by sending a wonderful surprise they are going to love. The gift basket to Russia is overwhelming with sweet delights including coconut-almond Raffaello confections, amazing Italian Ferrero Rocher chocolates and other all time favorites. A beautiful bouquet of fresh long-stemmed roses will bring a smile on their face and add color and joy to their home or office.
