The New Year holiday celebrates its jubilee. The winter holiday is 300. NTV Television Company has devoted a special TV film to this occasion.
300th Anniversary of the New Year Holiday is the journey of Father Frost, narrator Leonid Parfyonov, across the history of the holiday.
Over 300 years, the holiday has been named third-grade, banned, unpatriotic. Only 50 years ago it became a holiday. A foreign festivity has become a Russian national holiday over those 300 years. And nowhere in the world do people love this last night of December like in Russia.
