New Year’s Day holds a special place in my heart. If you weren’t aware, I actually don’t celebrate Christmas, instead we celebrate New Years. My parents come from the USSR and for them, New Years meant setting up a tree and getting presents in the morning. We still keep this tradition, and when people ask me about it, I call it ‘Communist Christmas’ because that’s what it really is.
So not only is New Year’s a day to start fresh, it’s a day to get presents, at least for me! This year we didn’t get to set up a tree because of our vacation but still, I love the holiday.
So whether you celebrate New Years or not, may your New Year be even better than this one, and may you have a year filled with love and friendship!
