This custom has a lengthy and intricate history, going back thousands of years. However, Russians now get to celebrate twice a year on this day! Not only that, but Russians also celebrate their New Year with customs reminiscent of Christmas.

The history of novy god 2024 (Russian new year)

The iconic Kremlin clock striking midnight immediately after the Russian president’s yearly New Year’s speech signals the start of the New Year, which begins for everyone just before midnight. When the Soviet leadership delivered a statement in 1941 about the nation’s activities during World War II, the custom of having the president deliver a speech was established. Presidents eventually veered away from politics and started talking about happier subjects like the spirit of the holidays and family values.

Ancient Russian New Year’s Day Celebrations

  • The Byzantine Empire introduced Christianity to Russia around 988.
  • The Byzantine calendar, known as the Creation Era of Constantinople, began on the day they concluded the world’s formation.
  • The date was altered to September 1, 1492, due to the belief in the Antichrist’s appearance.
  • Despite switching to the Gregorian calendar in 1918, the Russian Orthodox Church still uses the Julian calendar.
  • Peter the Great suggested New Year’s Day be observed “the European way” in 1699 to avoid financial losses.
  • The Gregorian calendar allowed for a 13-day difference in holiday timings, allowing for multiple celebrations.

Activities for novy god

Have a celebration.

A New Year’s celebration is essential, regardless of when you celebrate. You may even rejoice twice! Play some music, grab some food and champagne, and spend the evening with your loved ones.

Observe customs

Russians take a lengthy bath, clean their home, and forgive those who have wronged them as a way to start the year fresh. Rather than setting a resolution, write your wish down on paper, burn it, and then pour the ashes into a champagne glass. Top to bottom! Remember to watch the president’s address as well.

Watch “Fate: An Irony”

A Russian New Year gathering with loved ones to watch the wildly successful Russian romantic comedy “The Irony of Fate” is not complete without it. Plan a movie night with your pals so you can all watch this inspirational comedy. While watching the film, pass around some delectable appetizers and don’t forget to serve Olivier salad, a traditional Russian New Year’s meal!

5 Fascinating Facts About Russia

  • Most Russians are Russian Orthodox, nonreligious believers, or atheists; as a result, Christmas was introduced into the country only in the 20th century and is not ingrained in the culture; instead, Christmas customs are observed on New Year’s Day.
  • Legend has it that 70 cats with paid caregivers currently reside in the Hermitage Museum, where Empress Elisabeth is said to have permitted their presence in 1745.
  • Alexey Pajitnov created the well-known computer game in 1984, and it was available in North America and Europe three years later.
  • The main reasons for Russia’s 1897 $7.2 million (about equivalent to $120 million with inflation) sale of Alaska to the United States were the state’s harsh living conditions and dearth of natural resources.
  • This has the advantage of allowing people to view the president’s message before it officially airs at midnight, which is one way to enjoy the New Year.

Why we adore the Russian New Year, Novy God

It is like Christmas.

Russian New Year’s Eve seems to involve decorating a tree with candies and garlands and waiting for Ded Moroz, also known as Grandfather Frost, to deliver gifts to the kids. To get there, he climbs, skis, and takes a “troika,” a Russian horse-drawn carriage, as an alternative to flying with his reindeer. He pays a visit throughout the day and doesn’t mind baring his face.

Russians get two weeks off.

Due to the calendar disparity and the proximity of the holidays, Russians celebrate with joy and gusto over those two weeks. On January 1st, extra food is usually prepared for the next celebration.

It is varied.

Both Christians and adherents of the Russian Orthodox Church can respect their respective cultures and religions because both of these dates are official holidays. Given that religious holiday festivities were prohibited in the Soviet Union, this is particularly significant.
