January 1st, New Year
New Year is perhaps the most popular holiday of the year.
The main characters of New Years are Grandfather Frost (Ded Moroz) and Snowgirl (Snegurochka). Up until the XV century, Russia celebrated New Year on March 1st. The explanation was quite reasonable. March 1st was considered the time of nature's awakening. Later, during the XV century, New Year celebration had been transferred to September 1st after an official decree signed by Ioan Vasilievich III. September 1st was the last day of the harvest. In the year 1669, the last Autumn New Year was celebration. Afterward, Peter I enacted a decree according to which January 1st marked a year's beginning.
In the beginning of the XVIII century, great fireworks lit up the Red Square. One chronicler wrote, "Even Peter I himself lit up a rocket which drew a fire serpent in the sky." Peter the Great changed the way people celebrated New Year completely.
