To be born Russian, to remain Russian
And save this happiness,
When and wherever to wander–
Such as grandfathers ,to lay down in earth.
Lastochka,I am really fascinated with the New Year celebration festivities in Russia. They are quite different from European countries and even in Russy they vary from region to region. I published a post (in portuguese...) about Chyskhaan, the Lord of the Frost, here:http://olivrodaareia.blogspot.com/2009/12/oymyakon-yakutia-encontro-de-chyskhaan.htmlbut anyhow I would like to know more about this character. I found Yakutia one of the most wonderful regions in your country, as far as I can get it from the net. As you are posting about the new year season, would you mind to elaborate on Chyskhaan's legend?Thanks,Mario
MERRY CHRISTMAS :)
What a lovely photo...we are having our "yolka" today!
Mario, I didn't know about Chyskhaan till yesterday. I tried to find more info about this character in English, but... (((.
