Ancient New Year's traditions and our days
New Year began to be celebrated in Russia at the time of paganism. Our ancestors celebrated this day in the spring, at the time of awakening of the nature from a long winter dream. There is an assumption, that earlier Day of vernal equinox – March, 22, and later – March, 1 was considered as the New Year.
Perfect autumn vacation outdoors
Preparation for the 1st of September ended, new academic year has begun, and parents of pupils already think about the next issue – where to spend autumn vacation with children, which will start very soon? A trip to the sea is not always an option because of high cost and acclimatization, rest in the city will hardly be able to load the child with energy, so necessary before long winter. But active vacation in the countryside on comfortable recreation facility is an optimal option both for parents and children
