Description: Throughout Russia’s turbulent history, abrupt social change, and mass immigration, holiday traditions have managed to survive, and even thrive often despite active government repression. Join writer and historian Jennifer Eremeeva for a celebration of Russia’s “Old New Year” with tea, gingerbread, and a discussion of the unique fusion of pagan folklore, agrarian influences, Christian traditions, and Soviet modifications that have molded modern Russia’s numerous public and professional holidays.
