Happy New Year, everyone! I hope everyone is having a safe and prosperous year so far. I’m on vacation and still in a bit of denial that I have to return to work and my regular (i.e. non-vacation) life tomorrow. But no matter, I’m going to enjoy the rest of my day off as I do some knitting, reading, and hopefully writing before I have to go back to the old grind.

Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t teach you how to say Happy New Year in Russian. It’s С Новым годом [S Novym godom] and is a very commonly heard phrase in Russia at this time of year. The new year is the big winter holiday in Russia now, thanks to the Soviet Union, so many people in Russia have New Year’s trees, which are just like our Christmas trees in the West.

С Новым годом!

  1. Don’t you kind of wish we were in a place where people said С Новым годом so that we could still have a few weeks of holiday atmosphere and time off?🙂 Btw, do you know why the Новым is capitalized? I’m still trying to figure out Russian’s capitalization schemes (in many senses, haha).

    Totally OT, but I heard about this program and thought it might interest you:
