10 Vintage New Year Postcards

Vintage New Year Postcards

Posted on December 18, 2006 by


These New Year postcards are back from the Soviet times.

Religion was banned in Soviet Russia so there was not a Christmas celebrated but a New Year was the main winter holiday.

It was always a special holiday, same as Christmas in Europe or USA.

Even 20 years after democratic changes started in Russia  people still celebrate New Year more willingly than any other holidays.

    by the way, why there’s a santa claus in the last postcard?

    No!!! We do NOT have any Santas in Russia! It’s Father Frost! Now you should know!

    We often have such “d”ies. Especially on post cards, in the names of the books etc. It’s not common in every-day writing but some people like putting it in their writing)
